This workshop explores our relationship to daily stressors (e.g., work, home, school, etc.), the impact they have (e.g., physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual), and the ethical responsibilities of self-care faced by mental health clinicians. It is designed to illuminate the various types of stress experienced by mental health providers, and to demystify the concepts and applications of “self-care”. Topics will include: stress management, work/life balance, vicarious stress, secondary trauma, counter-transference, compassion fatigue, and occupational burnout. These areas will be examined through the hands-on application of creative and expressive arts, offering practical exercises for mental health clinicians to apply to their personal self-care routines.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will have an understanding of the ethical responsibilities of self-care and stress-management
  2. Participants will learn about the different types of stress and the impact on professional and personal health
  3. Participants will learn practical applications of self-care
