Self-Care and Compassion for the Counselor by Dr. Veronica M. Wanzer, PhD, LCPC

This one hour presentation invites counselors of all ages and stages of personal/professional development to learn and practice the benefits of self-care and self-compassion for the counselor. Participants will recall the importance of self-love for the helper, develop personal meanings for self-care and self-compassion, as well as share implications for client care. Participants will 1) explore and recall the importance of self-love, care and compassion for counselors, 2) develop person-centered meanings for self-care and self-compassion and 3) share how engaging in self-care and self-compassion practices as a counselor will benefit the clients we serve.
