Course description

Self-Care for Practitioners with Dr Meg-John Barker

What is self-care? Why is it so important? As practitioners, we find it notoriously difficult to take care of ourselves. This important workshop is an opportunity to work with others and think about how we are taking care of ourselves. It seems that right now, in the world, this is even more important.

You will be able to explore why it’s important to engage in self-care and how you might build it into your life. Learn about a wide range of self-care practices, drawing on trauma-informed, systemic, mindful, existential approaches and more. Learn how to go about engaging your clients in self-care practices.

Suitability - Who should attend?

All therapists and counsellors, both qualified and in training.

Training Course Content

The workshop will provide opportunities for participants:

  • To understand what self-care is and why it’s important for practitioners and clients alike.
  • To know your own blocks to self-care and ways you might work with those.
  • To have access to a range of self-care tools and techniques.
  • To make connections between inner self-care and oppression and marginalisation in the wider world.

The event will be led through a series of experiential exercises and small group discussions, fed back to the larger group for conversation. The facilitator will present some material in the form of handouts, and synthesise feedback on a whiteboard or flipchart.

Course delivery details

This workshop will be delivered via Zoom online over 2 separate sessions.
