As a library and information professional, you use empathy daily to consider the experiences of colleagues, patrons, and students. This level of care may be exacerbated during the pandemic and can result in compassion fatigue or burnout that may impact your mental health.
This is why self-care, the practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, particularly during times of stress, is important. Whether you are working from home, redeployed, or not currently working, join Emily Burns to learn some self-care practices that can benefit you during these challenging times. *Please note that the content presented in this webinar is not a substitute for professional medical advice.
In This Session, Participants Will Learn:
- Ideas for self-care in both personal and work contexts
- Reflective prompts and affirmations for challenging times
- Tips for dealing with difficult emotions.
