Burnout support group

I want to start a casual group to support each other with social work/counselor/people support burnout [prevention and response] and self/community care. Anybody interested in joining me?

some possible topics: - disability and help-work - anger and compassion fatigue - misogyny, racism, and ageism in helping work - spirituality and sources of replenishment - self care of basic needs (eg cooking, cleaning, budgeting, etc) - creativity - gratitude - "pleasure activism" - ethics

Open to any ideas for topics or media sources, just shoot me an email. Feel free to invite others.

Cultural Arts Day Assembly Representing Africa Thursday April 19th 2pm

My name is Megan Slack and I am the music teacher at Birch Primary in North Olmsted OH, which is located twenty minutes from Oberlin. I am also an Oberlin alumnus. At Birch Primary School we are having a Cultural Arts Day. For the music class room we are representing Africa. I wanted to see if anyone would be available to come to Birch on Thursday April 19th at 2pm to perform an African dance, song, or a drum performance at the school assembly. You would be performing first at the assembly. I will pay you for your time. I can also give you a ride to and from Oberlin if you need transportation. Thank you so much for your consideration and help. Megan Slack meganannslack@gmail.com 4042181804
