21NTC Session

Workshop: Team-Care Not Self-Care – Building Resiliency In An Era Of Burnout

This is a resubmission of an accepted 20NTC session proposal.


In this online session, Susan & Tyecia introduce the Personal Stress Prescription and Stressor Scorecard for participants to use for self-care. Then we transition to team-care, how to lead discussion and set team members up to care for each other.

In this session, participants will understand their sources of stress, and how to reframe, manage, or reduce it. This is a lifetime skill that is critical to strong job performance at all levels, and especially important to address in a pandemic.

All Nonprofit Wellness trainings are a mix of brain science education, stress management practices, resources to “dig deeper,” and tools to share with others once you leave. We like to model interactive practices and invite participants to stretch, squat, and stand during the presentations. Our trainings are especially geared toward nonprofit workers and K-12 teachers, yet are relevant for any human.
