Rotunda Contemplative Practice Series S2019 - Caring for the Caregivers
Speaker: Anthony DeMauro
Title: “Caring for the Caregivers”
Location: Rotunda Multipurpose Room
In attending to the needs of others, caregivers often fail to attend to their own needs. For many caregivers (including professionals, parents, and friends) taking time to meet their own needs feels unnatural or conjures up feelings of guilt. Unfortunately, this can lead to burnout and reduces one’s ability to effectively care for others. This workshop helps caregivers understand the importance of self-care and explores ways of replenishing and rejuvenating so they can more effectively continue assisting others.
