The Caregiver Conflict: Tips for Providers Working with Families

The Caregiver Conflict: Tips for Providers Working with Families

About this Webinar:

An individual’s identity as a parent, spouse, sibling, and more can often conflict with the expectations and rules of being a caregiver. Becoming a caregiver often forces individuals to become advocates, nurses, and protectors, which can impact their role as a spouse, partner, friend, or parent. As you work with caregivers, explore how they feel about this new identity.

Professionals can help caregivers understand the conflict they feel when their identities are in conflict with each other. Learn why caregivers feel stressed, confused, angry, and overwhelmed by understanding how “who you are as a caregiver” is changing and why it creates stress. More importantly, as professionals, learn how the caregivers and families you work with can manage these changes and reduce stress.

Learning Objectives:

Through this webinar, professionals who work with caregivers will be able to:

  • Identify when caregivers are experiencing stress because of an identity issue.
  • Identify and describe why caregivers are stressed because caregiving responsibilities interfere with their identity.
  • Discuss the three types of caregiver burdens and help caregivers identify the type of burden they are experiencing.
  • Work with caregivers to identify at least one action to decrease their stress.
