Event Details

This session is dedicated to supporting K-12 teachers. Dr. Gerta Bardhoshi will help us unite to do the radical self-care needed to thrive in this profession. 

Educators can’t help their students if they aren’t well themselves. Let’s come together to learn about the signs of compassion fatigue and ways in which compassion fatigue can affect job performance and personal health.

Moreover, participants will be taught evidenced-informed self-care skills (e.g., mindfulness) and will be given time to practice the skills and strategies presented.

This webinar is #5 in an 8-part Social-Emotional-Behavioral Health series. Educators who register for and attend all 8 sessions in the series will earn one free teacher license renewal credit. If you missed the first 4 webinars but still want to earn credit, email to access the recordings.
