In the current, ever changing landscape we now work in, it is more important than ever to maintain self-care and professional supports that meet your individual needs. Connecting with families virtually for their home visiting services, while balancing the demands of your own personal and family needs, and navigating an entirely virtual workspace in your ‘home office’ comes with unique stressors, many of which we tend to underestimate as we try to meet everyone’s needs. In this webinar, we will explore self-care and mindfulness activities, which can be used individually or applied to your engagements with families, and discuss strategies for group professional supports that have been successful ways to meet home visiting staff needs.
