In-Person Advanced Training with Childcare and a Free, Personalized Love Box from Atlanta Angels
Sunday, June 13 | 2pm-4pm | Marietta, GA
“Boundaries and Self-Care for Caregivers and Helpers”
In this training, attendees will learn an overview of healthy boundaries. There will be a specific focus on cognitive and emotional boundaries, exploring what research and the Bible have to say about ‘worry’ versus ‘concern.’ Attendees will then learn about the impact of stress on the body and mind and the importance of self-care. The idea of self-care will be re-defined from current cultural connotations and will explore Biblical roots of caring for oneself. Finally, attendees will have an opportunity to practice some of the techniques and methods discussed during the training, including mindfulness.
