Caring for Yourself So That You Can Care for Families
2020 was a stress-filled year that has taken its toll on everyone, and funeral directors have been hit especially hard. We now have more than decades of research demonstrating that working in high stress, trauma-exposed professions, such as funeral service, carries risk to the staff. With COVID 19 still raging, it’s more important than ever to have the tools and resources to practice self-care so that you can best serve your client families. Our trainers will provide new ideas for strategies for increasing your health and resiliency while working during a pandemic in a high stress field.
- Meditation tools you can use right now
- New ideas for coping strategies
