The Ethics of Effective Self Care for the Helping Professional

2019 Spring Seminar

Spiraling Up: The Ethics of Effective Self Care for the Helping Professional

If you are a helping professional in an organization, you are well aware of the struggle to provide quality services and remain personally happy and healthy while meeting what can seem like never-ending demands. Reframing your ethical obligation to remain professionally competent is built upon a foundation of positive psychology. This includes integrating self-care practices into our practice and routines and adopting mindfulness-based positive principles.


Learn how to meet a primary ethical obligation to remain competent in practice as evidenced in Section D. Professional Responsibility of the Certified Rehabilitation Counseling Code (CRCC).
Understand and apply four foundational principles: Flourishing, intentionality, reciprocity in care of self and others and integration of self-care into life.
Identify effective workplace strategies that result in positive support to wellness.
Understand the impact and role of individual and organizational leadership in pursuit of employee wellness and building resiliency skills.
