Taking Care of Yourself - Worker Self-Care

 

Overview

This video conference will address the need for self-care in working with alcohol and other drug (AOD) sector clients. It is hoped that the conference will increase understanding of topics such as burnout, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue.

Participation in this conference will assist workers in identifying their own triggers and signs of workplace stress. There will be a focus on developing individualised coping strategies as well as identifying potential barriers to their implementation.

This event is for professionals working in the AOD sector and other professional staff working with clients to prevent or reduce AOD related harm. It is not Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander specific.

Application deadline: 30 May 2017
