Healing the Healer

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Healing the Healer is a 1-hour online continuing education (CE) course that discusses what a wounded healer is, what causes it, and what differentiates caregiver wounds from other types of occupational related stress or burnout.

The goal of this course is to cultivate emotional well-being for anyone who has been on the front lines emotionally supporting others. We will examine the four pillars of well-being based on decades of research, and experiment with self-care/compassion strategies to build resilience.

Next, we will learn evidence-based creative self-care strategies proven effective in healing the healer, aligning with the four pillars of well-being. These strategies will be presented to you through description, application, and sharing examples illustrating how each technique may be applied to your own life or to those you work with and support. Links to guided exercises are included whenever possible to provide further enrichment opportunities to explore these self-care techniques. Finally, an ending prompts you to create your own realistic personalized self-care plan.
