When we are trying to move forward after a traumatic event, or significant loss, it is vital that we show up for ourselves in kind and loving ways. This is no time for our well-developed inner critics to be in control of our recovery.

What does high quality self-care look like in times like these?

How can self-compassion (aka loving accountability) help our healing process?

What do we need from the people around us?

How we, and our co-workers, show up for us when we are having this kind of a hard time can make the all the difference in our attempt to balance the challenge of early recovery with the need to meet our basic work life obligations to the best of our ability.

In 2024, with so much on-going war, genocide, firearm violence, racial violence and other systemic oppression layered on top of illness, loss, accidents, caregiving strain, and political unrest – it is likely that one or more of our co-workers is having a hard time and would benefit from a demonstration of empathy and caring from us. This session will also give you some tips for how you can show up for your team members with empathy and love.
