This is a workshop format, not a webinar.
This is a different kind of offering for PSR Advanced Practice. Instead of a webinar, this is going to be a 4-series workshop. This is a closed-session workshop. Once we have reached capacity, that is all the participants we are able to take. We will not be sharing recordings of this series on our YouTube page, or our website.
You are encouraged to sign in on a device that has a camera and microphone. You can feel free to mute yourself and turn off your camera when you want to, but there will also be opportunity to get involved in group dialogues. We will be using the Zoom meeting platform, so you may have to download a small program (if you are using a computer), or an app (if you are using a mobile device).
This is a workshop for you. It's all about your own self-care. We are in the midst of some really tough times, and you are doing some important and challenging work. We wanted to support you with this opportunity to take some time to refresh.
Consider signing into this workshop from a location where you feel comfortable and have a little space to move. If you are able to sign in from home, that's amazing.
(At this point we do not know if the sessions will be recorded for participants who can't make it, but we do know that the sessions will not be shared with the public.)
