Refuel Body

About This Webinar

In the past two years, service providers have no doubt experienced added stress, felt emotionally taxed, and faced lower resilience. They are depleted!. Virtual service delivery, sudden work environment changes, direct or indirect COVID health concerns, as well as changing job duties to maintain quality outreach despite uncertain conditions have all contributed to your need to refuel. So how do you put some fuel back in the tank? During this session, we’ll explore some strategies to help build resilience and take better care of yourself.

Learning Objectives: 

In this webinar, we will learn how to:

  1. Identify resilience.
  2. Differentiate between sources of stress and proactively plan for coping with the stressor.
  3. Identify the extent to which you would need to refuel prior to, during and after a service delivery experience.
  4. Practice and employ specific self-care techniques that help build resilience, restore depleted resources and effectively “refuel.”
