The Division for Early Childhood Service Coordination Community of Practice sent this resource out a few weeks ago titled "It is How you are....Not just what you do" and I thought it aligned nicely with some of our discussion around self care. Here is the link if anyone wants to check it out: https://veipd.org/earlyintervention/2017/02/28/its-how-you-are-not-just-what-you-do/
