EVENT - Fostering Presence for Therapists & Educators: Using Self Care to Be Present

6/27/2018 8:30 am – 11:00 am | Campus Events


Fusion Academy and The Centered Practice are excited to bring mental healthcare professionals together around the powerful topic of Self-Care, creating a forum to grow and network in our local community. We believe that by learning and growing together, we can create a community that is more informed and more energized about education, and the work we do for each of our students and clients.

This workshop is an experiential breakfast for professionals to practice some techniques to improve their daily self-care. Using a writing experience, a guided laughter meditation and sharing with others to make a personal Self-Care Treatment Plan, participants will leave with hands-on tools and suggestions to improve their day to day self-care and reduce burn out.

Breakfast is provided. Please bring your business card for a chance to win a luxury massage at Hand and Stone, and any promotional items you’d like to share for our resource table.

Qualified professionals will receive 1 CEU. This will be an intermediate instruction level.
