Description
For psychologists there is a strong link between self-care and competence in our complex multicultural society. When our emotional or physical health negatively impacts our work, it creates ethical risk because our professional competence may be compromised. In this intermediate workshop, participants will complete a self-assessment measure and discuss vignettes related to self-care and professional competence. Participants will also discuss effective self-care strategies that include a focus on our intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual selves in the context of research findings from positive psychology. Worksheets provide an opportunity for participants to commit to engaging in 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.
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.
