Self-care-An Ethical Imperative for Helping Professionals

Jamie Stacks and I have been internet friends for what feels like a long time. Jamie has been a staunch advocate for self care, not just through her awesome Facebook Group REAL Self-Care for Therapists,  but also through the way she interacts with people, the example she sets, and the passion she has for making sure we’re taking care of ourselves so we can do great work. She’s someone to follow if you, like me, have flirted with burnout or questioned if you can keep doing what you’re doing. I lo…

As all this was happening I kept soothing myself with “When I share this others will learn and it’ll keep it from happening to them. That’s why this is happening to me.” I even insisted the gag order be removed before settling because otherwise I just couldn’t make sense of the experience.
