16th Annual Community of Caregivers Conference with Robert J. Wicks
Riding the Dragon: Strengthening the Inner Life of Healing & Helping Professionals
Monday, September 18; 9am-12pm
Facilitated by Robert J Wicks
One of the greatest gifts we can share with others is a sense of our own peace. However, we can’t share what we don’t have. By discussing psychological approaches to maintaining perspective and inner strength in challenging times, Dr. Wicks, an expert on the prevention of secondary stress (the pressures experienced in reaching out to others) and author of Night Call: Embacing Compassion and Hope in a Troubled World, Bounce: Living the Resilient Life and Riding the Dragon, offers insights into how we can extend our warmth to others without losing our own inner fire in the process.
Topics will include:
maintaining a healthy sense of perspective
avoiding dangers that lead to unnecessary stress
knowing the 4 “voices” we need in our circle of friends to have balance and courage in life
improving self-awareness and developing your own self-care program
facing inner darkness
developing a mindfulness practice
Practical, illustrative, lively, this rich presentation will provide essential information on resilience, compassion, and personal wellbeing.
