Suicide Prevention: Self-Care for the Care Givers
(Presentation at:Taking Science into Practice: Beyond the Basics in Suicide Prevention Conference)
Working with or caring for people who are suicidal can lead to high levels of stress and possibly secondary trauma. This workshop will help participants identify the stressors in their personal and/or professional lives related to their suicide prevention efforts and offer an opportunity to develop a holistic and comprehensive self-care plan of individualized strategies to help ameliorate that stress. There will also be an opportunity to engage in a mindfulness-based stress reduction practice and evaluate its effectiveness for inclusion in participants’ self-care plans.
