The past year has been stressful, even traumatic for many, shedding light on the importance for us to prioritize building our own resiliency to thrive. For those in the helping professions, stress, burnout, and vicarious trauma are taking their toll on our personal and professional lives. The good news, there is HOPE. Join us to hear from national speakers to learn ways we can work together to buffer adversity and build safe, stable environments to thrive in our work, lives, and communities. You do not want to miss this opportunity to connect and engage!
