Caregivers of all kinds—from parents and spouses to therapists and other health care professionals—are notoriously bad at taking care of themselves. Oftentimes, we’re so caught up with caring for others, we may feel we do not “deserve” much time for ourselves.
The truth is that burned out caregivers cannot provide good care to anyone.
We were thrilled to host our fourth annual conference on Friday, April 17, 2015—“Radical Loving Care for Caregivers: How self-care helps you care best for others.” Attendees learned how they could reclaim their lives and refresh their energy so that they could offer their best self to themselves and others at this exciting event featuring renowned speaker, author, acclaimed healthcare leader and founder of the loving care movement, Eric Chapman.
The conference served as an opportunity for attendees to gain insight that will help them in their everyday lives while also supporting the mission of The Refuge Center for Counseling and the many clients it serves.(Click here for pictures from the event.)
