About Caring for yourself as a caregiver: Avoiding burnout through effective communication

Direct support work is the cornerstone of disability services and support. Direct support workers play a critical role in supporting individuals to lead quality, self-directed lives in the community. It’s not only important to provide individuals with high-quality supports; it’s also important to care for yourself. Direct support work is challenging work and stress and burnout are chronic issues in our industry. Join us for this four-hour training that covers topics related to disability justice, effective communication, providing person-centered supports, and caregiver wellness. These sessions are only for DSWs employed through Minnesota's consumer-directed support programs (PCA Choice , CDCS, and CSG). This training can be applied to the training stipend offered by DHS for eligible DSWs. Click here for more information about eligibility.
