“I cannot do ALL THE GOOD the world needs, but the world needs all the good I can do.” Jana Stanfield

How do you manage the caring and compassion that is included in your profession? Have you found yourself overinvested, exhausted, and ‘not enough’ for the families and children you serve? Self-care can be seen as a necessity for self-preservation. In this presentation, we will be focusing on how provider fatigue can impact one’s health, similar to caregiver fatigue. Becoming more self-aware of what we can control, what boundaries we need to maintain, and how to STOP and breath will help us become more effective in our job.

Captioning will be provided, if you need anything else, please email Kaycee Bennett. Some logistics will be different with our Coffee Hours, as compared to the past, but you can expect the same commitment to providing information, discussion, and collaboration on topics important to students who are blind, visually impaired, or Deafblind.
