Preventing Caregiver Burnout: Religion and Strategies of Flourishing

Caring for vulnerable children is challenging, often exhausting work. In spite of great love and care, nerves and patience can wear thin when parents and caregivers repeatedly encounter the effects of trauma. However, research repeatedly suggests that one of the most significant indicators of child well-being is caregiver health, leaving us with the critical question of how to prevent caregiver burnout. This webinar will center around a 2 year study of caregivers examining factors of health and flourishing.
