Description: This live, knowledge-based virtual training is designed to provide an overview of research and science related to evidence based mind-body practices for social workers. Benefits of important self-care practices, such as breathing techniques will be discussed as well as an honest exploration of the barriers to self-care. We will review how self-care practices can build resiliency, prevent burnout, and manage stress which is crucial during COVID-19 pandemic. Experiential practice in gentle movement based in Qi Gong, breathing techniques, and meditation will allow participants to learn tools to incorporate into their own lives as well as to use with the clients they serve.
