Friday, June 12, 2015
The Publick House
Sturbridge, MA
Registration Opens 7:30 am
Event 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

We will move beyond our basic conceptions of trauma to learn about the impact our work has on us, how we unknowingly become traumatized through our work and connection with others. Through this didactic dialogue, we will identify ways to improve our own self care personally, professionally, and organizationally to not only avoid burn-out. More information
