Anniversaries of any traumatic event, such as the Port Arthur massacre, can evoke strong emotions for those with existing mental health conditions. Self-care is important.
Working in aged care and looking after older people can be very rewarding. But sometimes it can be difficult or stressful. The people you provide care for may have experienced trauma, loss and grief in their lives and this can have an effect on you.
Hear from a panel of trauma experts and senior management and wellbeing staff working in the sector as they discuss a range of practical wellbeing strategies for individuals, teams and organisations. The discussion includes a framework for managing potentially morally injurious events, as well as presentation of relevant tools and training materials that are being developed in consultation with the sector to assist staff and management.
Whether you are an aged care manager or part of the workforce caring for older people, this webinar will give you practical strategies to support your own wellbeing while caring for others.
