Educators role and responsibilities continue to increase causing professionals to experience feelings of being overwhelmed, anxious and stressed as part of their daily life. The code of Ethics for the American Counseling Association (ACA: ACA, 2014) states that counselors should “engage in self-care activities.” Similarly, the Code of Ethics for the Association of American Educators states that professional educators should “maintain sound mental health.” Through structured experiences, group discussions, and practical activities, participants will learn effective self-care tips, tools, and strategies. This interactive course will help participants assess current self-care strategies and identify needs improvement areas for better work/life balance.
