The Self Care & Brain Care of Practicing Awe and Curiosity


Friday 9/30, 8:00 AM - 9:15 AM

David Bruce, LMFT

Clinical studies of awe have sparked new insights from old, spiritual practices that offer better brain regulation and resilience. How we see and perceive people, places and things can directly influence our internal well-being for better or worse. While the brain has many natural and automatic systems of perception, there are some sacred practices to develop better shalom-fueled, neurological pathways that can serve you well both personally and professionally. This class will provide some practical and contemplative exercises to bring more awe & curiosity in your practice, your relationships, and your spiritual walk.

When Helping Harms: Identifying and Addressing Vicarious Trauma and Clinician Burnout


Friday 9/30, 9:30 AM - 10:45 AM

Dr. Sean St. Jean, MSW, RSW

Have you ever asked yourself these questions: Am I tired or is something worse happening? What is the difference between vicarious trauma, secondary traumatic stress, and compassion fatigue? How do I know if I am really "burned out"? The truth is that in the helping professions our risk of emotional and psychological injury is high. We need to foster the crucial skill of identifying whether we are tired or injured. If you are looking for ways to protect your heart and mind as a counselor, social worker, or clinician, this is the class for you.

Therapists Are People Too: Addressing The Personal Well-Being of the Professional Counselor Through the Practice of Spiritual Disciplines


Friday 9/30, 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Dr. Tracy Jones, Ed.D, LPC, LMHC

As a mental health professional, you have the privilege of guiding others toward health and healing and the honor of being present to the pain and suffering of your clients; however, you also have a fully human life that includes facing challenges and carrying responsibilities both in and outside of work. It is vital to attend to your own well-being for both personal benefit and to remain effective as a professional, but many struggle with this and can risk compassion fatigue or burn out. You are required to give fully in your capacity as a counselor, but to do so, you need to be consistently filled yourself. You need to be plugged into the source of power to be recharged. In this class, you will be invited to consider ways to be mindful of your spiritual needs and grow in spiritual practices that fill the well you draw from to be able to give yourself fully to others. This class is an opportunity for you to explore creating rhythms of rest and rejuvenation to sustain and protect the compassion satisfaction that accompanies the calling to be a counselor.

Christian Smith, LICSW

As professionals, it is important to evaluate clients' environment, background/values. Self care can have a different meaning and look differently to people from different backgrounds. As professionals, our self care suggestions should reflect the client needs according to these perspectives.

Disillusionment Detox: Self-Care for Those Working with Trauma


Saturday 10/1, 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM

The rates of secondary trauma and compassion fatigue are rising for those in helping professions. This class will address the issue of burn out in professionals who feel themselves tiring out.

Ultimately, the class will assist those who are in need of emotional detox due to the increased negativity in our society.
