Multi-Day Workshop Series, February 23 through April 6 | 5:30-7:00pm EST | 6hrs total
CEs for LMHC, APA, and LI/LCSW pending approval from credentialing bodies.
Mental health care professionals (psychologists, counsellors, social workers, and many others) often work in an environment that leads to “burnout.” This includes high-level intensity, time constraints, competing demands, lack of control over the work process, and sometimes conflicting roles and relationships with leadership. The recent pandemic has additionally increased the intensity of helplessness, sense of inefficiency, and inability to shut off the therapeutic role. Focusing on other people’s problems can lead mental health providers to lose track of their own personal well-being and that of their families.
This program designed for mental health practitioners is rooted in the values and best practices of Boston College’s formative mission. Over the next four-sessions, our goal is to strengthen individuals in their mind, body, and spirit in order to become flourishing participants in their personal and professional lives. This is the Ignatian inclusive and holistic approach based on Cura Personalis, i.e., individualized attention to the needs of one’s bodily, cognitive, emotional, social, and spiritual levels.
By re-creating one’s inner balance, each person may be better able to engage the question: Who do I want to become, in order to better serve others?
At the completion of this program each participant will be able to:
- Describe the experience/reflection/action paradigm and apply it in the process of ongoing adjustment to their personal and professional demands;
- Employ new proficiencies in self-motivation and self-empowerment in a competing and results-demanding environment;
- Construct a personal / professional meaning-oriented perspective, through engaging a search for a more fulfilling way of living and working
