We will explore three facets of self-care that can become lifelong practices. Offered towards the end of summer, this workshop will allow you space to set intentions for the inevitably busy fall season.
Focusing on caring for self and making goal-directed intentions are resilience skills that support personal and professional efficacy for life.
Guest Faculty: Rebecca Bryan, DNP is an adult nurse practitioner whose passion is raising interprofessional awareness about trauma-informed approaches to care. In 2012 she founded the UrbanPromise Wellness Center in Camden, NJ, with evidence-based initiatives grounded in Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) research. Dr. Bryan is currently an adjunct professor at Rutgers University School of Nursing and has 20 years of experience working in the primary care setting, as well as experience working with pastors at Credo wellness conferences. She has educated interprofessional audiences about the impact of childhood adversity on health, behavior, and social consequences across the lifespan.
