Upcoming CADRE Webinar

Self-Care Strategies for Families with Children with Disabilities

January 9, 2018 from 10:00am – 11:15am PDT

About the Webinar:
Self-Care Strategies for Families with Children with Disabilities. Self-care for the caregiver of a child with disabilities is a complicated topic that fellow caregivers I know find frustrating. The reality is simply most of us cannot fathom having the time or the capability to address our own needs ahead of a child with complex needs. This presentation encourages us to redefine what self-care really means for the parent of a child with disabilities. How do we reframe self-care in the context of our challenging lives? How do we discover achievable self-care? And, most importantly, how do we prioritize our own physical and mental health throughout this all-consuming journey? We will also explore the obstacles that often sabotage our own self-care and ways we can overcome them. While material in this webinar is focused on caregivers of children with disabilities, the content is applicable for all of us learning how to better take care of ourselves.
