Chronic Disease Self-Management Facilitator Training
Clackamas County Social Services announces it's Chronic Disease Self Management Educational (CDSME) training. The curriculum is evidence-based and designed by Stanford University to help people with chronic conditions live a healthy, happier life.
Leaders work in pairs and co-facilitate engaging 2 1⁄2 hour workshops, held each week for six weeks. Participants learn how to manage symptoms, set weekly goals, problem-solve effectively, improve communication, handle difficult emotions, eat well, discover ways to relax, manage medication and exercise safely. The minimum commitment for leaders is to co-lead one six-week session per year under a licensed organization (Clackamas County Social Services or another entity).
Applications are available for those wishing to apply. Preference is given to those with chronic conditions. Training will include some study and practice teaching with peers. Space is limited. For more information and to register, click here.
