MINDFULNESS MATTERS! Dr. B. Nilaja Green will be giving a Mindfulness Matters Workshop for our partners within the community.
Sponsored by the YWCA Ulster County.
Date & Time: Friday, October 6th, 2023, 12:30 PM-2:30 PM
Location: 733 Broadway Kingston, NY 12401 (Ulster County Restorative Justice Center)
Cost: $25 per person!
Learning Objectives include: –
Objective 1: Introduce attendees to the historical roots and functions of mindfulness
Objective 2: Describe burnout, compassion fatigue, and emotional resilience.
Objective 3: Engage in experiential learning and provide skills to apply to daily living and work. Compassion fatigue occurs when workers take on the emotional experiences of their clients and burnout develops over time when a worker feels continually asked to meet demands for which they do not have enough resources.
Mindfulness has been shown to significantly decrease levels of stress, and anxiety and to increase self-compassion and overall mood for client-facing workers such as healthcare providers. #YWCAUlsterCounty #CenturyStrong #YWCAIsOnAMission
