learn interventions that will help you implement self care. You will come away with a personal self care plan.
Purpose (why): Human service providers - whether as a counselor/therapist, case manager, or administrator dealing directly with clients - are exposed daily to stressful situations indirectly and often directly through the services they provide. This can lead to burnout and what is called ‘compassion fatigue’ which reduces our ability to bring our best selves to the job, and also leads to issues outside the workplace, like mental and physical illnesses.
Method (how): This course will employ the use of lecture, self-assessments, and activities practice. There will be plenty of time for questions and the trainer will ask for audience participation in a series of activities. This training uses trauma informed and mindfulness based methods and perspectives.
Audience (who): This training is most appropriate for mental health practitioners, particularly therapists and licensed social workers, seeking to better manage the stress and/or burnout effects of direct practice.
