Mental health professionals face a variety of unique challenges, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has increased stress, uncertainty, and loss experiences. To maintain wellness and professional vitality, therapists should have an understanding of the risks of burnout, compassion fatigue, and secondary and vicarious trauma, as well as effective methods to counter various risk factors.
In this 2-hour continuing education webinar, Tami Micsky, DSW, LSW, CT will explain how mental health clinicians can utilize tools to assess burnout, personal professional satisfaction, and current coping mechanisms. Micsky will share strategies for incorporating self-care into daily practices and assist participants in creating a measurable, goal-oriented self-care plan to increase their professional satisfaction.
This introductory continuing education webinar is designed to help mental health clinicians:
