Who cares about libraries? Peer support, self-care, and collective care for people working in libraries
Being trauma-informed or trauma-responsive incorporates peer support and self-care as standard practice. Both of these practices build resilience, lessen burnout, and equip those working in libraries with tools for self-regulation which they can then model to others.
In this interactive and informative program, attendees will use the trauma informed framework to:
• Discover models of formal and informal peer support and collective care networks
• Get tips for establishing networks and establishing a self-care plan
• Learn what peer support looks and feels like

She speaks and publishes on topics such as organizational culture, customer service, and cultivating empathy in library workers.
