Join us for a presentation on ethics and self-care. We will discuss why professional self-care is an ethical practice and some strategies you can use in your own self-care routines. Topics covered include:
- Understanding the relationship between counseling codes of ethics and self-care.
- How self-care concepts relate to professional performance, to colleagues within the work setting, and to the ethical provision of rehabilitation counseling services.
- Developing a self-care plan.
