Mindfulness-based Self-Care in Human Services:
Tools to reduce burnout and improve health
We know from research with teachers, police officers,
and other front-line service providers that mindfulness-based practices can be effective at helping to reduce negative outcomes related to stress.
Mindfulness-based strategies are well positioned for use in front-line work because they do not require special equipment, clothes, or spaces to use, and enable you to focus on things you have with you all of the time (breath, body, senses).
Join Sebrina Doyle and Robert Roeser from the Penn State College of Health and Human Development, along with staff from the Bureau of Juvenile Justice Services, at a full day workshop where we’ll talk about mindfulness and compassion tools that decrease the negative effects of stress and promote well-being for those who work in human services professions.
This workshop is being offered at no cost to participants with support from the Raymond E. and Erin Stuart Schultz Endowment in the College of Health and Human Development
