Why Maintaining Your Own Wellness is an Ethical Issue in Rehabilitation Counseling

Attendees will be introduced the accumulating evidence on how “counselor burnout” impacts a counselor’s quality of life, job performance, and potentially compromises the counselor’s ability to uphold their ethical responsibility of demonstrating professional competence (Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors, Section D: Professional Responsibility, D.1.d; D.3.a; and Section A: The Counseling Relationship, A.4.a, A.4.b). Contributing factors to the stressors experienced by counselors will be highlighted and the benefits of various strategies to address those stressors will be presented. 

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1.  Identify factors that contribute to “counselor burnout”;
  2.  Understand how “counselor burnout” impacts physical and mental wellbeing;
  3.  Understand how to recognize symptoms of “counselor burnout”; and
  4. Learn self-management strategies to improve physical and mental wellbeing.
