Self care in the Helping Professions
Developing emotional resilience for those working in clinical care
Saturday 23rd April 2022, 10am-1pm
Middle Aston House, OX25 5PT
A 3 hour workshop designed to understand and respond to professional self care needs of professionals working to support the physical, emotional and mental health of others.
Those working in the helping professions understand the mechanism of ‘taking on’ or ‘taking in’ vicarious trauma in their work and feel the challenging effects of this in their bodies and minds. Over time and without adequate support, this leads to compassion fatigue and eventually burnout.
This workshop introduces strategies and techniques to:
• Understand the effects of vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue
• Better understand your professional self care needs through a self care audit.
• Identify your ‘at risk’ patterns and behaviours – signs and symptoms.
• Integrate new habitual self care practices.
• Experience energy psychotherapy practices to clear your mind and body of unhelpful energies picked up in the work (methods include EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique), the use sound vibration and visualisation)
• Pre empting blocks to self care
• Create a self care plan
£60 per person
