Collective Care: Supporting one another and preventing burnout in Housing First Programs
2019-10-03 @ 2:00 am – 2:30 am
The Ontario Housing First Regional Network Community of Interest (OHFRN-CoI) presents a webinar on “Collective Care: Supporting one another and preventing burnout in Housing First Programs”.
Housing First work is both inspiring and intense. How can we manage the impact this can have on the emotional, physical, and mental health of Housing First staff?
During this webinar, you will:
discuss and practice strategies, including mindfulness, a highly researched practice that promotes well-being and reduces anxiety;
explore the theoretical and biological underpinnings of mindfulness; and
examine some practices that can help us build a culture of collective care in our workplaces.
Participants from different communities are encouraged to attend to learn and share their experiences in working with Housing First for persons experiencing chronic homelessness.
