You are remarkable, exceptional and amazing! You are a supporter, a believer, and a champion! Do you agree?
As advocates we spend our days, and sometimes evenings, caring for and empowering others. Sometimes we forget to do the same for ourselves. Advocacy work is chosen out of compassion, empathy, experience or a belief in a cause. This is not easy work. For every one cause for celebration, we may have five to ten struggles. If you feel as though you need a little encouragement, support, and ideas to keep you fabulous, please consider this training. This is especially important as we navigate daily changes and stresses induced by Covid-19 and the impact of isolation and grief.
1. Acknowledge the impact of Covid-19 on stress, grief, loneliness and isolation for us and our clients.
2. Increase advocacy skills such as communication, support and boundaries.
3. Identify challenges and barriers to happiness, peace and contentment.
