PERSONAL SELF-CARE


Clinical Supervision and/or Consultation

Practitioners in our profession work with a variety of different and difficult clients. It is important to continuously insure that each individual is receiving the best of care. It is also important to take care of ourselves as practitioners and as individuals. Clinical supervision and consultation are two ways to insure that this is happening. Clinical supervision allows us to present difficult cases and to increase our understanding of those with whom we work. By its very nature, it also provides us with a way to check out how we are doing.

It is also important to develop consultative relationships with other professionals. Establishing these kinds of relationships allows us to connect with other professionals. It also allows us to continuously assess how we are handling things such as stress. These relationships can be invaluable in keeping us grounded in what we are doing and how we are doing it.
