Ethics and Self-Care: Balancing our Lives and Reducing Risk
Principle A of our ethics code reminds us that: "Psychologists strive to be aware of the possible effect of their own physical and mental health on their ability to help those with whom they work." This intermediate workshop examines the complex links between self-care and professional competence. The participatory format includes a structured self-assessment exercise and the application of ethical and self-care principles to challenging professional practice and multicultural vignettes.
