As helping professionals, we often get so caught up in taking care of others that we neglect our own needs and forget to nurture our own protective factors. This course will explore the concepts of Mary Mackrain, MEd, IMH-E (IV) and Nefertiti Bruce Poyner, MEd from their book, Building Your Bounce, 2nd Edition. Together we will reflect on our personal strengths, identify strategies for developing our strengths and build a plan for enhancing our resiliency. As we reflect and journal together, each participant will work to strengthen relationships, increase initiative, support positive internal beliefs and maintain self-control. Join us as together, we build our bounce!
