Have you ever stopped to think, “Why are we so good at taking care of others, but not ourselves?” Across several studies, 21% - 67% of mental health workers may be experiencing high levels of burnout. Those same workers are only moderately engaging in self-care practices and only on a limited basis. We need to both be aware of this, as well as proactively take an approach to prioritize our own mental health.
Focusing on preventative measures can help us lead a happier, healthier lives. A review of self-care will help identify self-care methods unique to each individual person and how to best enact these methods of care to improve one’s life. It will review the balance between work, personal, and family stresses and develop plans which recognize the deficits in each area and how to build them back up. This workshop will help those actively engaged in the helping profession recognize the need for self- care including the types of self-care as well as how we can develop a self-care plan.
