M10 – Self-Care and Mindfulness

In this workshop for front line and supervising staff, we explore how to identify overwhelm, trauma, and compassion fatigue (in ourselves and others), and we learn how to support ourselves (and our peers, and our families) as we navigate stressful environments. A 20 minute component of this workshop will be directed at preventing negative psychological outcomes in staff from reversing opioid overdoses. The focus will be geared at helping agencies that serve clients who use both licit and illicit substances, to develop an overdose prevention protocol with the aid of a check box guide (provided).
