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.
- Participants will have an understanding of the ethical responsibilities of self-care and stress-management
- Participants will learn about the different types of stress and the impact on professional and personal health
- Participants will learn practical applications of self-care
- Participants will engage in hands-on creative arts activities to process didactic material
Due to the precautions necessary to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have decided not to hold our workshops in the Studio. Since can’t accommodate the social distancing required by the authorities in our hands-on workshops, we are moving our in-person workshops online to be presented as an interactive webinar until we are certain we can safely offer you a creative, hands-on experience in our studio.
We will ship you a box of art supplies for the day, and all you’ll need to do is log on to Zoom (free application)! We consistently hear from participants that our ethics workshop is the best experience they have had getting their required CEs, online or in-person!
You will receive the Zoom access link and materials box about 1 week prior to the workshop date. NOTE: Please enter your preferred mailing address when you register!
Cancellation Policy: We require cancellation notification at least 2 weeks prior to the workshop date for the online Ethics of Self-Care.
