For psychologists there is a strong link between self-care and professional competence in our complex multicultural society. In this intermediate workshop, participants complete a comprehensive self-assessment and analyze ethical practice vignettes. In addition, presenters discuss the critical role of mutually beneficial colleague relationships in maintaining professional competence. Participants discuss effective self-care and communitarian care strategies that focus on our intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual selves in the context of positive psychology research findings. Participants are encouraged to identify and commit to specific self-care activities.
Learning Objectives
1. Explain how maintaining personal well-being is an ethical responsibility directly related to competence in a complex multicultural society and how care for one’s colleagues can be considered part of our professional and ethical responsibilities.
2. Identify at least two vulnerabilities to occupational stress common to psychologists and two unique to you as an individual psychologist based on a self-assessment exercise.
3. Identify common warning signs of occupational stress for professional psychologists in general and describe two that are most relevant to your professional practice.
4. Develop a specific and clearly articulated plan for implementing two self-care strategies from among those presented. Discuss a specific and clearly articulated plan of action when noticing a colleague who appears to be struggling.
