101: Supporting The Wounded Healers: Maintaining Resiliency in Our Recovery While Helping Others Begin Theirs

Hosted By: Jaime Harper

Instructional Level: Introductory

Personal and professional research over the years has proven the necessity for individuals in the helping field to seek out their own sources of help, support, and goal setting. While knowledge of this importance is understood, few are willing to put it into practice. For individuals who are walking their own recovery journey while helping others, it becomes even more difficult to reach out for help. This session will discuss triggers that affect our Mental Health, our fears for seeking help, and methods to encourage emotional, physical, and spiritual restoration – from one wounded healer to other wounded healers.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify personal triggers that may affect our own mental health.
  2. Understand the barriers for individuals in the helping field which keep them from seeking help for themselves.
  3. Learn how to ask for help in maintaining one’s own resiliency.
