People in the helping professions are often told they need to “practice self-care.” What does that mean, and why is it in fact an ethical requirement for workers AND agencies to create a culture in which it is possible? This workshop provides ways of thinking about that, emphasizing how boundary management especially can be impacted by self-care. It also offers ways to determine the difference between self-care and self-soothing and helps participants put some self-care strategies in place.
