Cedars at Cobble Hill

Turning Burnout Into Collective Care

This invigorating and powerful one day workshop offers an alternative approach to the notion of worker burnout.


Those working with people struggling with addiction, poverty, violence and oppression are often told that they will “burn out”. Contrary to this is a story of sustainability; how our collective work sustains us, nourishes our hope, invites us to honour the resistance and strength we witness in the people we work alongside, and allows us to work congruently with our ethics. This experiential workshop will address our collective ethics and practices of collective care as opposed to self-care.


April 21, 2017 8:30 to 4:30

3741 Holland Ave. Cobble Hill, BC

This workshop is a full day, on site, complimentary training event for Cedars Staff and Continuing Care Providers. Lunch will be provided.

Email lisas@cedarscobblehill.com to RSVP no later than Friday, April 7th, 2017.

Care For the Caregiver

This invigorating and powerful workshop offers an alternative approach to the notion of worker burnout.

This experiential workshop will address our collective ethics and practices of Collective Care as opposed to self-care. Workers will be invited to begin to build their own “Solidarity Team”; examining who stands alongside them, what ideas and practices sustain them, and how they might access support when burnout attacks.

"You must understand . . . I am ordinary. Painfully ordinary. This is not modesty. This is fact.
Maybe you're ordinary, too. If so, I honor your ordinariness, your humanness, your spirituality. I hope you will honor mine. That ordinariness is our bond, you and I. We are ordinary. We are human.
The Creator made us this way. Imperfect. Inadequate. Ordinary. . .  
We are not supposed to be perfect. We're supposed to be useful."
