In this four-week course, students will dive deep into the topic of self-care. We'll discuss what self-care is, why it is important for our health and wellness, and how to prioritize it in our schedules. Throughout the four weeks, students will develop a workable self-care plan, with elements that they can implement right from the start. This class is primarily lecture-based, where students will be provided with an in-depth overview of stress management and healthy self-care practices. There...
Learners will: 1. Know what self-care is and why it is important. 2. Understand what drains and energizes them. 3. Be able to identify various self-care strategies specific to their needs. 4. Be able to identify potential barriers to engaging in self-care. 5. Develop a workable self-care plan.
I'm a masters-level counselor, and I've worked as a licensed school counselor with students across all grade levels from kindergarten through grade 12. I also have prior teaching experience through a variety of positions I've held, including working as an extended school program coordinator, one-on-one and small group classroom aide, and graduate assistant. As a school counselor, I have frequently provided classroom lessons on socioemotional learning, academic interests, and career-related topics. Within the field of mental health, my passions include promoting a healthy work-life (or school-life) balance, reducing stress and burnout, and living an authentic life.
Learners should plan for up to one hour of homework per week. This homework is dependent on the learner and the amount of time each learner wants to spend on their own self-care plan. Most writing work can be completed in class, unless discussion prevents us from having enough time to work.
Learners should have a pen/pencil and paper for reflection questions. A specific notebook for journaling would be ideal but loose paper is just fine! Learners can also print off the provided worksheets if desired.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
