Self-care isn't just a good idea, it's an ethical responsibility. Helping professionals are at a high risk for burnout and professional impairment. Helping professionals often feel guilty about practicing self-care because they are consumed with caring for others. As a professional, you’ve spent countless hours obtaining education to assist clients, yet little attention is often given to educating those in the helping professions on the effects of professional impairment, how to identify it, and the importance of self-care. 

If you’re in the business of helping others and want to learn more about burnout, secondary traumatic stress/ vicarious trauma, or compassion fatigue this is the course for you.
