AHP Offers Free Virtual Self-Care Workshop Nationwide

Advocates for Human Potential, Inc. (AHP) is offering a 1.5-hour self-care virtual workshop, “Soar with Self-Care: Refuel Your Well-being," to people anywhere in the nation. This no-cost event will be held on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. CT. Registration is now open

The event has limited capacity to allow for personal interaction, so registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The workshop will be repeated on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. CT for those who are unable to attend this session.

This interactive workshop is designed to help participants prevent burnout. Participants will learn about and practice some simple self-care approaches and strategies for feeling centered, replenished, and joyful.

“This training helps people discover ways to ensure their own physical and emotional well-being,” says Pat Tucker, AHP Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. “We offer this at no charge to ensure anyone can participate and bolster their well-being.”

The event is led by three behavioral health professionals—two licensed therapists and an expert in  mental health and diversity, equity, and inclusion—who are all subject matter experts in emotional well-being and self-care. This workshop offers participants the chance to

  • Self-assess what depletes them and prioritize what refuels them
  • Create self-care routines that balance the many moving parts of their lives
  • Recognize what to say "no" to so they can maintain a self-care routine
“Many employees across the nation report burnout, anxiety, hypervigilance, and worries about their health and the health of their families and clients,” explains Tara Fischer, AHP Senior Program Manager and licensed social worker. “In response, we are providing self-care help that costs them nothing.”

This training is provided by Advocates for Human Potential, Inc. and supported wholly or in part through an emergency COVID-19 grant to the Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (FG-000268).
