To help others, recovery coaches and peer support workers must prioritize our own self-care. Because of our lived experience, many organizations have come to value the positive contributions of the peer role for individuals in all stages of their recovery. The intensity of working with individuals in early recovery can be extremely challenging. As a result, peers are at risk for experiencing chronic stress, compassion fatigue or a recurrence of symptoms.
Upon completing this half-day retreat, participants will:
- Understand how ongoing stress can impact physical and mental wellbeing
- Demonstrate an understanding of how stress can impact job functioning
- Develop preventative measures to minimize potential recurrences
- Describe the importance of maintaining healthy boundaries for personal recovery and wellness
- Develop a personal self-care plan and apply wellness practices in ones daily life
- Learn creative ways to help foster a working environment that prioritizes self-care
