Wellness as an Essential Aspect of Service Delivery for Human Services Professionals

Wellness, a vital aspect of ethical service delivery for any professional in the human services field, is often discussed but seldom practiced. Impairment can have a significant impact on professional job functioning, which may compromise care and pose potential harm to our clients. Impairment may present itself in the form of mental or physical illness, burnout, substance related issues, or job dissatisfaction. This session will be devoted to discussing holistic wellness (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) and its relationship to ethical service provision. Participants will receive information on comprehensive wellness, how to identify burnout, and receive suggestions for activities that may promote professional and personal wellness. 

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to

  1. Identify ways to enhance wellness in personal life and professional practice
  2. Discuss and identify impairment in professional functioning
  3. Identify suitable activities that promote holistic wellness personally and professionally
