This invigorating and powerful one-day workshop offers an alternative approach to the notion of worker burnout. Those working with people struggling 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 honor the resistance and strength we witness. This experiential workshop will address our collective ethics and  practic es of
 collective care as opposed to self care.
