Autumn Lubin, Yellow Wood Pathways

Housing professionals and community leaders are at high-risk of burnout, compassion fatigue and harm to their physical and emotional health due to the 24 hour demands and high stakes of the job. These high stakes, high stress jobs can include helping homebuyers vie for a home in a tight market, homeowners at-risk of foreclosure, renters at-risk of eviction or homeless Iowans in need of help getting back on their feet.  This workshop will guide participants to become self-aware of their stressors and create practical strategies to minimize them without adding more to their already busy schedules. Attendees will leave with strategies they can put to immediate use. Self-care isn’t something else to do, it’s how you do everything.
