About this workshop:
Self-care is a personal challenge and a professional mandate that every therapist must confront. Self-care is seldom taught in graduate school and too seldom discussed by professionals. There are many ways to promote self-care. This workshop will address self-care as an ethical imperative, the paradox of self-care, barriers to self-care, and research-informed methods of therapist self-care. Participants are invited to discuss their own self-care struggles and strategies as well as ethical dilemmas they have encountered.
