Stress Management & Self-Care in times of Change

Workshop overview:

The CHSP/Home Care workforce are experiencing rapid policy reform and shifting service delivery practices. For many smaller and remote organisations this will require a dramatic shift in business operations, which may result in employees experiencing higher levels of stress and anxiety, and an increase in employee absences and attrition.  

Employees need strategies to manage the impact of uncertainty and change before it leads to overwhelm. Being able to establish boundaries to ensure a work-life balance and avoid burnout is essential for individual health and wellbeing.  

This 2-hour interactive workshop will share insights and helpful tips to enhance your ability to manage stress and prioritise self-care while facing the challenges of the next 12 months. Take the time now to invest in your own wellbeing.

Who should attend:
