The Caregiver's Toolbox: Support, Advocacy & Resources (Chicago)

Monday, March 19, 2018 at 10:00am
This event lasts 0 days 3 hours and 0 minutes.


Caregiver roles have grown at an exponential rate over the last several years as people are living longer and family dynamics have shifted. Caregivers play a unique role and often neglect their own needs to help others. This workshop will provide tools that support and advocate for those in the role of caregiver, as well as provide resources that can contribute to providing holistic care.

All courses offered through the NASW-Illinois Chapter meet the continuing education qualifications for LSWs, LCSWs, LPCs, LCPCs, LMFTs, RNs, LPNs, APNs, and LCPs licensed in Illinois as required by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR).

Speaker: Tanya DePeiza pursued her dreams of helping others by attending the Jane Addams College of Social Work at UIC to obtain her Bachelor and Master degrees in the field. Over the last 16 years she has served formerly incarcerated women, low income families and older adults. Throughout her career Tanya has conducted numerous workshops on grief and loss, caregiver support, older adult issues, and stress management. She is in the process of starting her own private practice.
