YWCA training - Self Care: Beyond the Bubble Bath

The YWCA of Greater Portland offers advocacy training on a weekly basis at our downtown location on SW 10th ave. Please go to the YWCA website under events to see other trainings and to register. 

Self Care: Beyond the Bubble Bath – Thursday, December 4th from 6-9pm

Self care is a real buzzword these days.  But many people continue to find self care inaccessible, confusing and even oppressive as a concept.  This workshop aims to redefine self care so that it works for the needs and liberation of everyone.  We will explore self care conceptually and offer practical tools for applying it to ourselves and our communities.


  • Identify signs of burnout.
  • Discuss why self care is important for us in the work that we do.
  • Identify ways that we can strengthen our self and community care practice.
  • Identify ways that our agencies can support our collective sustainability.
