Self Care Strategies for Therapists
2 CEs offered for Licensed Counselors and Social Workers

Presented by:

Dr. Robyn Gobin

While being a therapist is highly rewarding and gratifying, it can also be emotionally demanding and challenging. Therapists who do not prioritize self-care can experience personal well-being challenges that impact their ability to show up competently in the therapy room. During this session we will explore practical strategies therapists can use to care for themselves as they care for others.


Fee: $65, includes a copy of Dr. Gobin's best-selling book, The Self-Care Prescription


Limited to 6 participants

September 19–October 24, 2022
Mondays 5:30–7:30pm  |  701 Devonshire Dr., Champaign
