Who we are matters! We can be changed positively as we enter into the sorrow and heartache of domestic violence for the purposes of hope. We can also be changed negatively. These potential negative effects are what we will address here in order to combat burnout, ward off apathy, and maintain our well-being.
If any of these traits describe you, I can show you how to empower yourself with essential tools to self care for hope and renewal.
- Exhaustion, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, depression
- Increased ‘escape’ activities
- Habit changes (loss of healthy activities or negative dietary changes)
- Feeling bored, frustrated, hopeless, or trapped
- Lack of enthusiasm
- A growing lack of care and/or concern for self and others
- Professional isolation
- A strong and consistent desire to change jobs
As helpers, each of us has a limited capacity to carry other people’s stories in our minds and hearts. The more time someone spends listening to survivor stories, the greater the danger of traumatic reactions. Soul Care will focus on these experiences and the tools you need to remain strong and focus on self care.
