The Ethics of Self-Care

  • Joanne Theobald, M.S.W., L.C.S.W. and Kelly Green, M.S.W., L.C.S.W.

Applying ethical care for self is a monumental, career-long task for mental health professionals. How do we navigate the daily challenges of counseling others and practicing within difficult systems without becoming ill ourselves? This experiential, interactive session will explore the research literature and our codes of ethics for guidance as we address the inevitability of our very human reactions to this work, and discuss ways to manage our own risk.
