Clock Hours: 6

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
  4. Participants will engage in hands-on creative arts activities to process didactic material

We consistently hear from participants that our ethics workshop is the best experience they have had getting their required CEs!

COVID-19 protocol:
We are operating according to the current King County guidelines, which state that for healthy and uncompromised individuals, outside of healthcare settings or close quarters, masks may be optional. Our studio is quite large and airy, so we are considering mask wearing to be optional according to the individual’s comfort level in our workshops.
