Importance of Self-Care for Frontline Professionals

Green Clock Hours: 1.50

Healthcare and behavioral health professionals providing services on the front lines of a sustained health crisis are exposed to traumatic events on a regular basis. Staff deemed essential have little escape from the grueling demands of their daily work. Professional self-care routines are often insufficient or seemingly impossible during times of heavy demand. Without healthy work-life balance, effective self-care practices, and social connection, maladaptive coping mechanisms may surface or return. Many professionals experience feelings of helplessness when, despite their best efforts, they are unable to provide clinical solutions for their clients or patients. Based on what is known about trauma, it is imperative for professionals to effectively address self-care needs in a timely manner, for themselves and for those they serve.

The goal of this course is to provide addictions, behavioral health counseling, marriage and family therapy, nursing, nutrition and dietetics, occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychology, social work, and speech-language and pathology/audiology professionals in healthcare settings with practical information on effective self-care strategies to use in times of prolonged stress, such as during a public health crisis.
