Ethics: Beating Back Burnout: The Ethical Paradox of Self-Care
June 08, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
The increasingly complex field of counseling has oftentimes placed overwhelming demands on the workforce. It sometimes feels we are forced to choose between the well-being of our clients and our own well-being. The reality is, however, only by practicing self-care can we effectively address the needs of our clients over the course of our careers. Stressors include vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, productivity expectations, limited resources, and audit-proof documentation, while limited appreciation for our efforts often leaves us exhausted, burned-out, and vulnerable to poor ethical decision making. With this perspective in mind, it becomes readily apparent that to attend to the needs of our clients we must give a high priority to taking care of ourselves. Make a commitment to your well-being by joining us in a lively, thought-provoking, and supportive exploration of the ethics of self-care.
