“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” – Edith Wharton
LEAD is pleased to welcome Vikki Reynolds back to Australia in September to facilitate a workshop on Collective Care, Solidarity & The Zone of Fabulousness! Those of you who attended the LEAD Hand-in-Hand: Make it Happen… Make it Matter conference, heard her speak about role of justice-doing and solidarity in relation to sustainability of Community Sector practitioners. In Vikki’s words “If we can enact collective care, as opposed to only self-care, sustainability becomes possible, and we can act in solidarity as activists to change the social context, and shoulder each other up in resistance to the dark spaces of our work”. The idea of ‘the zone of fabulousness’ offers an alternative approach to understanding the ways we as workers are harmed in the work, and our collective resistance to these harms, that is different from vicarious trauma or burnout.
We’re excited to hear from Vikki again, and this time in person!
This Youth Week let’s help young people in their journey from trauma to triumph… from healing to recovery. For a limited time, LEAD is offering practitioners to enrol for the eLearning course –
This course will increase your awareness of the significance of language and its impact when working with children and young people who have experienced harm, oppression, and trauma. You will also build self-awareness skills for identifying what activates or triggers your reactions as practitioners as you respond to human suffering and heart-breaking work.
There are several workshops lined up for this month and the rest of the year, including Mary Jo Mc Veigh’s ‘The Journey from Managing to Leading’ workshop and the 2-day master class on ‘Reflective Supervision’ that you don’t want to miss!
