Using clinical data, case scenarios and practical application, this webinar will explain that compassionate skillful psychologists are not immune from burnout and vicarious traumatization. In fact, given the shared trauma of this past year, we are potentially more vulnerable and more tired than ever. Attendees will begin the development or enhancement of a self-care plan for improved health and effectiveness.
