Whether we work as mental health professionals, clergy, educators, pastoral caregivers, or medical providers we routinely encounter the depth and scope of human need. We are not only asked to tap our skills, training and expertise, but also make the fullest use of ourselves as persons. How can we do so without becoming rapidly depleted in the process?
In this workshop we will consider best practices around self-care, specifically as they relate to our spiritual selves.
As integrative approaches become more prevalent in the helping professions, we helpers need to attend more closely to our own integration around mind/body/spirit. What does healthy spirit-care look like both professionally and personally? Those questions will guide our inquiry into a topic that is simultaneously numinous and vital. Spiritual and religious resources will be explored for their unique potential in sustaining us in our work and in our lives.
