Description:

In this day and age when “perfection” is enshrined and the concept of positivity has been perverted into the process of avoiding pain at all costs, it is imperative to remind all of us, who are enslaved by skewed ideals of what true happiness means, that hardship is truly a great avenue for growth. When we accept pain and suffering as important and necessary aspects of our individual journeys rather than aberrations, then we stand to have a much better chance of finding meaning and significance in our lives. This seminar-workshop aspires to propagate the message of embracing pain as requisite to a full and meaningful life. Further, it aims to teach the participants the value of pain and suffering and how to develop a better and healthier perspective about their lives’ most trying situations. In so doing, they may be able to embrace all experiences, good and bad, with peace and curiosity and accept the path they are on while still aspiring to be the best versions of themselves

The Role of Self-Care in Reducing Burnout in the Field of Psychology

Description:

Mental health professionals are individuals responsible for promoting and offering mental health awareness and services. All mental health professionals offer different services for people’s psychological well-being. Richards, Campenni, and Muse-Burke (2010) said that counselor’s responsibilities, which are to do no harm, to benefit others, and pursue excellence in their profession, are part of the core ethical principles of counseling. That is why mental health professionals tend to be vulnerable that leads to impairment in their professional lives and weaken their therapeutic efficacy. Experts find that they are susceptible to vicarious trauma, substance abuse, relational difficulties, and depression. Thus, to remain to their ethical principles, it is essential that counselors engage in self-care to decrease the possibility of impairment and improve their well-being as well. Pope and Vasquez (2013) said that disregarding self-care can contribute to negative effects such as being able to drain the enthusiasm, joy, resilience, and meaning out of a career. It can hurt the capability to practice ethically and can sink in discouragement, compassion fatigue, and burnout.


Reminders:

This workshop/seminar will enlighten the students of psychology about the importance of self-care in their future field of work. This will also let the students learn more about the different experiences in the various field of works in psychology. This will enhance their knowledge about the ethical concerns of self-care in order to lessen the effects of burnout, especially in the field of psychology.
