PRESENTATION:  We are called to the helping profession due to our own experience with addiction, trauma, and other difficult life circumstances. In this work, we are encouraged to practice self-care, but not often encouraged to take a deeper look at what comprises “wellness” and what gets in the way. As demands of the field increase, we are expected to know the latest evidenced-based tools to support clients, but are we practicing what we preach? This is not a fluffy self-care seminar, but rather a call to action designed to challenge participants to step into their own healing with courage.  In order to thrive in this field, it's crucial we shine a light on what really matters when it comes to caring for ourselves and the barriers that get in the way of being our best selves. In this seminar, SAMHSA’s Wellness Initiative will highlight the “Eight Areas of Wellness” along with Kristin Neff’s components of self-compassion. Participants will be challenged to audit their own practices to align their professional and personal selves.

  • Participants will differentially define burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. 
  • Participants will explain the components of self-compassion and demonstrate an understanding of tools to enhance self-compassion practices.
  • Participants will discuss the eight areas of wellness and their application to themselves as wounded healers.
  • Participants will analyze current self-care strategies and create an individualized plan to decrease stress and increase resilience.
