CHOREOGRAPHING CARE

For staff at homeless shelters, self-care is not a luxury, it's a matter of survival. Unfortunately care workers are conditioned to put their own needs last and poverty support agencies typically do not have resources to prioritize them. A fundamental component of Choreographing Care is to integrate secondary trauma processing and self-care into homeless shelter systems as a paid part of the work day. By reorganizing institutional priorities according to care ethics, the project considers processing and de-stigmatizing secondary trauma as integral to the labor of care in a care-valuing society.
