The Trust is pleased to offer a new 2-part series, “Turning Toward Ourselves and Each Other: The Pivotal Nature of Clinician Self-Care” as part of our Virtual Webinar Series.
Recent headlines have highlighted the increased stresses on mental health clinicians, announcing that mental health providers are “struggling too,” “under strain,” at a “breaking point,” and that “another pandemic” of clinician burnout may be upon us. Along with familiar clinical hazards in our field, amid the pandemic, mental health providers now treat patients struggling with intensified health fears, social isolation, and financial strain, in a time of exceptional social upheaval, political rancor and division. They face significantly increased demands for their services, higher acuity levels in clients, and ongoing technological and regulatory complexities in providing telehealth services, especially across jurisdictions.
Compounding this further, in their own lives, clinicians are experiencing many of the same anxieties and pressures as their patients/clients, and in some cases are suffering significant personal losses and unprecedented disruption to their daily lives. This 2-part series looks directly at the clinician experience and focuses on the pivotal role of clinician self-care in our effort to help clients – and ourselves – adapt and cope during these difficult times.
