Helping Professionals: How’s your self-care? Here’s something just for you.

In support of helping professionals during COVID-19, we hosted a Zoom series “Self-Care Check-in for Helping Professionals.” Here, we have provided the recordings and links from each one. Each 30-minute session includes practice of at least one self-care exercise, and an interactive discussion with a special guest on a particular aspect of self-care for those caring for others. These are inclusive for any helping professional, whether on the frontlines of managing the pandemic, or helping people in other ways. This includes healthcare professionals, teachers, counselors, and so many more professions that serve others. We hope this will be a helpful resource to revisit from time to time, and to share with others.
