About the Event
Self-care is not meant to be just another item on the clinician’s “to-do” list, but it seems like that it is what it has devolved to. This presentation hopes to challenge that. It will specifically look at the ethical concerns of self-care; both when you do it and when you don’t. It will especially focus on challenges of balancing passion for the profession and personal limits protecting from burn-out or other decreases in professional performance quality.
Bethany Suppes, PhD, LMFT is an assistant professor, clinical director, and supervisor at Whitworth University and runs a private practice in Spokane, WA. She has completed presentations over professional ethics and sexual attraction; supervision; IFS therapy; self-care; and self-compassion, particularly its systemic applications. Her favorite self-care activities are rereading favorite novels and admiring the nature of the PNW.
