No one can sustain in this work of caregiving without support and care in return. I listen to the feedback from our clinicians and know a priority is for us to find ways to deepen our connection to one another and in the work so that people feel nurtured and seen. I love the idea of moving from self-care to collective care. It can be a challenge to find ways to build resilience together. From my role, I see the importance of creating opportunities for learning and growth that we can do together, where we also get to know each other and ourselves better, to open ourselves to vulnerability, and hopefully to feel nourished.
We will be asking for feedback from folks who attended the series so we can learn more about how the opportunity has impacted them and their work, and we will continue to look for ways to create learning and healing spaces for our clinical strand. I believe wholeheartedly in prioritizing the fullness of our humanity, and in highlighting the unique qualities of our ever growing, ever evolving team of incredible clinicians!
