The Time is Right for Self-Care – Let’s Do This!

Presented by Sandra A. López,
LCSW-S, ACSW, Diplomate in Clinical Social Work

Over the last two decades and especially during the pandemic, the profession of social work has become increasingly focused on resiliency and self-care. Although initial introduction to self-care was met with resistance and skepticism, there is now a growing appreciation and recognition of its importance in promoting resiliency in the profession. This keynote will lead participants in “real time” experiential demonstrations of leading, evidence-based self-care practices such as positivity, gratitude, mindfulness, self-compassion techniques including affectionate breathing, loving kindness, and more. A contemporary framework for conceptualizing self-care, its history, and its various dimensions in this new world will be emphasized.
