We’ve lived through history being made. As always, we scrambled to protect our individuals, but direct service professionals, managers, and executives had to make hard choices. While technology allowed us to carry on, many of us temporarily lost that vital connection of being with our teams and colleagues. Some situations left us feeling helpless and overwhelmed. Many of us are caretakers at home as well as work, and it wasn’t always possible to protect ourselves from the daily onslaught of worry and stress. Numbness and delayed reactions can create the “I’m fine” effect. As we recover, we need to plan how we will care for our staff and ourselves. Managers and administrators will need to understand what professional trauma, burnout, and empathetic distress look like in ourselves and others. In this presentation, you will also learn about the damage that “moral injury” does. Finally, we will focus on compassionate empathy and the foundations of mindful self-care: practical tools that we can use with our staff, our agencies, and ourselves to heal and thrive.
