Parenting Journey & Integrating Self-Compassion as a Standard of Care 

The Network hosted a workshop with Parenting Journey on integrating self compassion as a standard of care. Parenting Journey helps parents and caregivers increase their confidence, capability, and resiliency as individuals and as parents. While their programs have always emphasized the importance of self-care to promote family well-being, they have re-examined their strategies and elevated self-compassion in their practices to reflect the needs of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.  

Research demonstrates that increased self-compassion is correlated with a decrease in depression and anxiety symptoms and an increase in resilience during times of stress. It is composed of: self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and mindfulness. This workshop provided tools to include these elements in your practice at your work and in your personal life to help navigate through these complicated times.

Doctors Without Borders: Supportive Housing & COVID-19
 

 
During COVID-19, the Network partnered with Doctors Without Borders (DWB) to work with supportive housing providers to offer advice on infection protection and control, isolation strategies, safety protocols for symptomatic tenants as well as through fielding other heath related questions.
 
Doctors Without Borders' Michelle Mays and Alaina Deans presented on both best practices as well as what they'd learned in their stay in New York City, specifically as it pertained to supportive housing. Read more about the panel here
