Penn-Del AER Presents Taking Care of Ourselves: Helping Us So We Can Help Others Featuring Billy Brookshire

June 23, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

The 2021 Penn-Del AER Leadership Series has focused on strategies for recharging, refreshing, and renewing ourselves professionally and personally, and on ways we can share those strategies with our students and clients. Our first session with Maria Lepore-Stevens focused on our physical health and the importance of exercise. In the following session, Maureen Army helped us to call attention to our creative side with rock painting.   In this final session, “Taking Care of Ourselves: Helping Us So We Can Help Others” with Billy Brookshire, we will focus on strategies to refresh and renew our state of mind and help us keep going.

The Pandemic has added yet another layer of complexity and stress to jobs that were already demanding. Many practitioners start each day depleted physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.   To change this scenario, it is important to make space in your life just to “be,” to identify self-nurturing activities, and to make use of comfortable minutes. In the time we spend together in this workshop, we’ll explore options to help you take better care of yourself. The good news is that these activities don’t have to be hard, expensive, or take a lot of time, and they can be shared with your students and clients and with their families!
