Millicent Cahoon presenting "Promoting Counselor Self Care as Part of Effective Supervision"
In Spring of 2020, Millicent Cahoon co-presented with Debra Napier, PhD, LPC, NCC, LPC-S on promoting self-care as part of Counseling Supervision. Their presentation highlights the need for Counselor Educators to include self-care as a regular part of supervision. In thinking about this topic, ethical mandates for engaging in ongoing self-care for counselors are discussed. The presentation includes a comprehensive review of counselor burnout while also addressing the negative outcomes when counselor self-care is overlooked or underutilized. In addition to addressing the ethical implications and negative outcomes associated with lack of self-care, the presentation also incorporates a thorough review of self-care techniques and strategies that should be included in counseling supervision.
