A four-week workshop for women mental health providers

Being a helper and healer is an honor and a privilege. We do the work because we love it; it is deeply rewarding to walk beside someone on their journey of growth (and in turn, grow ourselves). Yet this work can also break our hearts, over and over. We may feel despair due to the tragedies we witness.  We may feel helpless or hopeless in the face of seemingly impossible obstacles. We may pretend “everything is fine” for our clients or peers, because we are afraid to acknowledge our own suffering.  We may have confided in our employers about our feelings and received no support, which continues a cycle of suppressing those feelings. All of this can make us cold and lose sight of our empathy; not just towards our clients, but towards ourselves.  Our job that once seemed like a calling may now feel like a burden. In addition, we are also trying to deal with our own life events and stressors related to our families, health, finances, etc. So what do we do?
