Working with young children and families can be stressful work, and can wear on the resilience and commitment of dedicated professionals. In the context of implementing high quality practices and programs, supporting resilience for children and families, it can be easy to miss caring for ourselves and colleagues.  In order to transform our workforce, and do well for young children and families, we must embrace strategies that address personal and professional well-being in our health and relationships, and creating workplaces where all can flourish. This workshop addresses how stress impacts our personal and professional functioning, and introduces some strategies for supporting well-being in our work environments, with an overarching value on relationships.
