ACRA national presented an online webinar on September 23rd after the 2020 virtual AGM to support members with self-care during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was hosted by Helen Mclean and Jessica Sharp, Development Facilitators, Training Centre in Subacute Care (TRACS WA).
The theme was Emotional well-being: everyone benefits when we take a compassionate approach to our work, to each other, and to ourselves. The session explored the importance of language in compassionate care, discussed the difference between compassion and empathy, and reflected on the concept of self care – ‘fitting your own oxygen mask first’.
The slides for this webinar can now be found on the Educational Resources section of the Member’s Centre.
