Stress First Aid: 02 Self-Care for Caregivers

This course discusses the various stressors caregivers are presented with on a daily basis and details the importance of self-care. Dr. Patricia Watson of the National Center for PTSD presents tools and coping mechanisms caregivers can use by highlighting five core essential elements. This lesson talks about the ways caregivers can create "cover" or a safe space. We hope this course will aid the great resilience our caregivers demonstrate constantly as they tirelessly attend to both the visible and invisible wounds of our American heroes.
