The Ultimate Self-Care Toolkit (eBook)

How to treat yourself better and learn to take care of yourself in order to better provide for others.

This Toolkit is about giving you the tools you need to take care of yourself, so that you can effectively manage extremely stressful situations. This Toolkit will highlight some of the kinds of stressors that challenge you as a mental health professional, and will provide you with strategies for overcoming those challenges so that you can continue to be effective in your work for years to come. Not only does stress impact the professionals, it has a great impact on employment and HR departments as well, causing things like:

  • Low rates of staff satisfaction and retention.
  • Decrease in agency efficiency, morale and quality of casework practice.
  • Increases in staff turnover.
  • Disruption of relationship continuity with clients.
  • Miscommunication and/or mistakes that may occur
  • Increase in caseloads and stress level.
  • Economic loss to the agency, given the costs associated with hiring and training.
