Please watch your inbox for information about each particular meeting.
December Topic - Self-Care as a Core Competency
Presenter: Ariel Peters-Angelucci, MSW
Burnout and compassion fatigue are the common culprit that leads many mental health workers to serve their clients from an empty cup. Often due to the reason that self-care is an activity set aside for after work on their free time. Self-care should be a competency that is integrated into their professional and personal
practice. This course discusses the way to integrate self-care into your practice that leads to positive client and practitioner results through understanding the mind-body connection.
