About the Womanist Working Collective
The Womanist Working Collective is a social action and support collective for Black womyn (both cis & trans), femmes & gender variant folks. Our Community Education work facilitates conversations on self-care, building Communities of Practice, economic cooperation, Womanism and Black Liberation.

Workshop Description
This workshop is developed to help participants understand and incorporate the concept of self-care into their daily lives. There is emphasis placed on how practicing these concepts may help prevent staff burn-out and turn-over by giving them the necessary tools to process and release the emotional baggage they inevitably pick up as a worker in social services, whether through direct or indirect engagement with service recipients. The goals for this workshop are to (1) identify self-care as a vital tool for everyday life, (2) to help participants recognize how they’ve been (possibly unconsciously) practicing self-care thus far and (3)to develop with intent a reserve of self-care practices to use when managing stress.
