This presentation will focus on taking care of ourselves while taking care of others by taking a light-hearted look at ourselves and our occupational stresses.  The positive and negative implications of working with high risk youth and families will be presented.  Additionally, this presentation will focus on strategies for self-care, maintaining self-esteem, and keeping your mental health from becoming "contaminated".
