This workshop is in development and will be submitted to the CMTBC for Cycle 11
Join us for exploration on how to discover and embrace sustainable self-care in your life.
Like many healthcare providers, RMTs can put everyone’s needs before their own only to find themselves depleted and in pain over time. It is no wonder given that the prevailing model for care-givers and healthcare providers is to put themselves last in the service of taking care of those who are 'truly' in need. This pattern is so deeply ingrained that we have a hard time recognizing that we have a choice to behave differently, and consequently we wind up defaulting into old patterns that become self-perpetuating and have a negative impact upon us. We get lost in the stress and circumstances of our own lives (and the lives of our patients!) and don’t see that when we sacrifice ourselves in order to take care of others we wind up making choices that ultimately deplete our own health and diminish our perspective on what is possible in our lives, and in the lives of others.
Come and discover how to move beyond 'coping and managing' in to actual change that frees us to make different decisions that support our health, enhances our lives, and improves our relationships with our ourselves, co-workers, friends, and family - all for the better. And subsequently, as healthcare providers, we become better roles-models to inspire our patients to embrace their own self-care.
