Course Description:

Educators today are facing challenges and demands like never before. The tensions between an educator's calling and the
reality of the profession can create a growing sense of compassion fatigue, burnout, and job dissatisfaction. In light of this
context, this course utilizes the instructor's book "Supporting the Wounded Educator: A Trauma-Sensitive Approach to
Self-Care" to encourage, equip, and empower teachers and other K-12+ educators to find relief and hope. Taking a
trauma-sensitive approach, this course will utilize the discussion points in the book to help you reflect on and navigate
the pressures of being an educator, whether you entered into your profession carrying wounds with you, have felt wounded
from your work environment, or you are simply someone trying to support others. After delving into the doable strategies
and suggestions for personal and professional self-care, the course will conclude with a final project designed to move
participants forward with hope and vision for doing one of the hardest jobs there is! This course utilizes the book "Supporting
the Wounded Educator: A Trauma-Sensitive Approach to Self-Care" available as a paperback
(www.hope4thewounded.org/store) or as an ebook for under $10 on Amazon.
