Our workplaces matter, no matter what we do or where we work- we are all engaged as helping professionals.

Mental Wellness & resilience is key to healthy workplace culture.

Investing in educating employees/employers in how to better manage stress promotes mental wellness, greater productivity and increase in psychological safety.

One of the foundational tools is to introduce Journaling to help integrate more deeply strategies for personal and professional self care. The Journal acts as a window into self, both a container and outlet to process, reduce stress, increase awareness that fuels mental wellness in everything we do.

CJ: Self Care for the Helping Professional (6 Ceu course)

Through accessible journaling techniques and exercise to explore your creativity.  This is a great opportunity to unplug and reconnect with yourself, strengthening resiliency against secondary trauma, cumulative stress and service burn out.

Through the use of writing tools, we will use our journals  as a tool to reduce stress, to rediscover focus, direction and set goals to identify, inspire and motivate your life forward.

The CACCF Approved Course:  “Creative Journaling: Self-Care for the Helping Professional” helped me expand my mind on the many different ways we can express our thoughts, feelings and deepest fears in a very mindful and intentional way. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found the content to be thoughtful, intelligent and creative. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking the opportunity to make time for self-reflection, introspection and personal and professional growth.
