Caring for Self

A Workbook for Early Childhood Educator Well-being

This professional development resource protects and promotes well-being of some of our region’s most essential child advocates: educators. Turnover in the essential field of early childhood education is high because of the physical and emotional toll and low financial benefits. One study found that more than one-quarter of Oregon early educators experience clinical anxiety, a rate more than five times that of the general population, and 15 percent experience depression.

Caring for Self: A Workbook for Early Childhood Educator Well-Being uses self-reflection activities and informational content to support educators to develop healthy relationships, boundaries, and a sense of control to minimize stress and prevent burnout.

This book is great for: lead staff in child care programs, coaches of educators, child care providers, early childhood educators and their advocates.
