April 9 | Professional Well-Being and Self-Care in the Field

Join us in April as Bridgett Scarborough will discuss the importance of professional well-being and self-care to stay healthy in body and mind. The nature of our work can be emotionally heavy and it is critical that practitioners understand and use strategies to keep themselves well. Mindfulness and self-care help to prevent burnout and allow us to be fully present for our clients who need us most. This presentation will provide information on the importance of self-care and ways to make sure you are attending to your needs while you care for others.
