About the speaker. Eileen Devine is a licensed clinical social worker. You can read more about her here
. She is also the author of this blog post
. Eileen seeks to provide families with tangible things to do – everything from introspection and reflection (how to do it, why it’s important, etc.) and then more concrete self-care practices that relate to mind/mental health, body (physical health and also nervous system health) and spiritual health. She often also talks about relational stress that is present in family units and parenting partnerships/marriages and what can be done to help strengthen those relationships as well.
