Therapist Self-care Post-COVID: Conversations With a Wounded Healer

About the Course:

Professionals are expected to know the latest evidence-based tools to support clients, but are we practicing what we preach? This is not a fluffy self-care seminar, but rather a call to action designed to challenge participants to step into their own healing with courage. In order to thrive in this field, it’s crucial we shine a light on what really matters when it comes to caring for ourselves and the barriers that get in the way of being our best selves.

This seminar will highlight SAMHSA’s Wellness Initiative “Eight Areas of Wellness” along with Kristin Neff’s components of self-compassion. Participants will be challenged to audit their own practices to align their professional and personal selves.

This course is based on the , Therapist Self-care Post-COVID: Conversations With a Wounded Healer created by Sarah Buino, LCSW, RDDP, CADC, CDWF in 2022.
