Returned day before yesterday from a fabulous 2 day conference of the Florida Mental Health Counselors Association held in Orlando, FL. It was such an honor to wander among so many diverse, brilliant, and innovative professionals and I was reminded repeatedly of the power that comes with interacting with others and absorbing what each brings to the arena of promoting wellness of mind, body, and spirit. I acquired wonderful new tools to enhance my practice. I was inspired to hear and be somewhat changed by one man’s journey from hatred and rage to hope and advocacy.
I was honored to have presented Trauma Informed Self-Care: A Handy Guide for the Every-Day Warrior, a project that has been in the works for the past two years. This was well received and I am extremely grateful for loving feedback not only from my husband but from wise and available mentors.
This presentation is now approved for 3 hours of Continuing Education by the Board of Examiners here in Florida.
I have posted the slides to this presentation here today. Feel free to use, just be certain to cite as appropriate.
