*2. Therapist Self-Care As An Ethical Mandate

3 ceu/clock hrs.  3 core hrs. for Counselors and Social Workers; 3 related hrs. for LMFT’s

1:00-4:00  $39.  *This workshop can count as 3 hrs. toward the 5 hrs. of Ethics required by the licensing board or it can count as 3 core hrs. for counselors and social workers.

                                                          Description:

​​“Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” - Eleanor Brown

Definition of Mandate: ‘An official order or commission to do something.’

Both the ACA Code of Ethics and the NASW Code of Ethics have statements about self-care:

ACA:

… counselors engage in self-care activities to maintain and promote their own emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual well-being to best meet their professional responsibilities.

NASW:

…self care is an ethical obligation, implicitly required by Standard 1.01 and other ethical obligations to which we aspire.

So taking care of ourselves as therapists is mandated by our codes of ethics? What does this mean? It means that when we don’t take care of ourselves, we’re being unethical.

Through the use of lecture, discussion, small group activities, and videos, the workshop is going to focus on how we can take the best care possible of ourselves by looking at how we can practice self care in the following areas:

Intellectual, emotional, physical, social, occupational, spiritual.

We’ll also be examining how to NOT care of ourselves in those areas.

I'll Be Doing 2 Workshops In Roswell on July 18!

1. The Least Anxiety Producing Workshop On Anxiety You’ll Ever Attend 

 3 ceu/clock hrs.  3 core hrs. for Counselors and Social Workers; 3 related hrs. for LMFT’s
9:00-12:00    $39
 
                                                                      Description:

   Remember the workshop I did last year called ‘The Least Depressing Workshop on Depression You’ll Ever Attend’?
This workshop is going to do for anxiety what that workshop did for depression: present facts, research, importance of understanding anxiety, types of anxiety, need/no need for medication, if medication is needed then what kind, and more. I’ve got some terrific information to share with you about what therapists must know to appropriately and helpfully treat clients suffering (yes, suffering) from anxiety and to help the client manage a potentially debilitating issue. Anxiety is associated with significant functional impairment and high direct and indirect costs.


  Anxiety is the most common mental health disorder in the U.S., affecting close to 40 million adults, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), surpassing even depression. It's estimated that approximately 10 percent of teenagers and 40 percent of adults suffer from an anxiety disorder of some kind. That’s about 18% of the population! However, only about one-third of those who struggle with anxiety receive treatment. One likely reason for this may be the stigma surrounding mental health. Due to this stigma, those who struggle with mental health concerns may lack social support, become isolated, and carry low self-esteem. The good news is that anxiety disorders are highly treatable. Attend to learn the newest research on how to help clients struggling with anxiety. The information will be presented through the use of lecture, videos, discussion, and small group activities.
