A Code of Ethics guides providers to protect against professional burnout as well as maintain best practices. The Empowerment Model is a tool developed to guide individuals how to be more responsible for their health and wellness through understanding and practicing 5 components of self-care (sleep, exercise, nutrition, connection/support and mindfulness/perception).
Participants will explore how stress affects health, relationships, work and overall sense of wellbeing. Utilizing evidence-based information along with personal exploration, individuals will begin to develop an awareness of the impact of stress on their lives and identify tools for improving stress resilience. Through utilization of this model, individuals will have the opportunity to protect against burnout while also developing tools for client care.
