Let it Go: Defrost this Winter Break with Self-Care

1 hour running time

This webinar is not eligible for CEUs.
As a mental health provider, have you been struggling with your work/life balance? With the additional stressors from COVID-19 and distance learning, many school psychologists are finding it hard to carve out time for themselves. Join us for this hands on workshop that will discuss self-care strategies and our barriers to accessing them. You’ll leave with practical tips for everyday life and tools to feel refreshed returning from the holiday break.
