As Recovery Coaches, we are expected to hold space for our clients and are tasked with supporting them on their wellness and recovery journey. Often, our wellness can take a back seat. The impacts of work, life, and other factors can contribute to feelings of burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. We often learn of common resources like exercise, healthy eating, and other methods to combat these feelings. What happens when these solutions don’t work for your daily lives?
In this training, Laurel Gray Robbins, a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker from the Vermont Center for Resiliency, will be discussing these challenges. This training will include learning about nervous system responses to stress and how you can notice when you are out of your Window of Tolerance or at burnout risk. When we know our current capacity and needs, we can intentionally utilize self-care strategies and regulation tools that help us be grounded and energized at work and in our lives.
Recovery Coaches will leave this training understanding the impacts of compassion fatigue and how to implement a self-care plan that works for you and your lifestyle.
