Dear Fellow Practitioner,

When I ask my colleagues about what styles of therapy they were originally trained in, they answer quite easily.

But when I ask them about their training on practitioner self-care and occupational hazard prevention, most colleagues pause…

…and then the crickets.

The crickets then turn into a commiserating chat about how most of us have been left to our own devices when it comes to taking care of ourselves amid the constant care for others.

“My trainees had been constantly told to take better care of themselves but weren’t ever given the tools for how or adequately informed as to why it’s so important.”

– Ariel Botta, PhD, LICSW

The Costs of Constant Caring

So what are some of the costs of constantly caring for our clients?

What are the occupational hazards and stresses that we’re all at risk of experiencing?

The promising news, however, is that there’s a growing movement of practitioners who desire to nourish themselves.

We want to know how to sustainably keep our cups filled before they’re completely empty.

We don’t want to wait for that long overdue vacation in order feel more at ease and balanced.

We want to be mindfully awake to the risks of burnout and compassion fatigue.

We desire to integrate self-care and resilience-building practices into our professional lives just like we counsel our clients to do.

Introducing…

Self-care for the Stressed Health Care Practitioner: Preventing Burnout and Promoting Wellness

The Thriving Therapist has been listening to your desire for better balance, resilience, and meaning in your professional lives.

I’m excited to offer this one-of-a-kind, online audio course featuring wisdom from a group of amazingly thoughtful and compassionate practitioners, just like you.

This course features practical wisdom on self-care and prevention of occupational hazards that’s largely been missing from our training and our professional evolution.

You can think of this program as “wellness wisdom” from professional self-care gurus who have taken on the challenge of making self-care a #1 priority for themselves and for you. (See below for themes covered in each interview).

Your Self-Care Program Host

I’m a psychotherapist, certified teacher for the Mindfulness Institute for Emerging Adults, certified Comprehensive Energy Psychologist, certified YogaBody Breathwork coach, and founder of The Thriving Therapist.

And I’ll be the first to admit that self-care wasn’t always and still isn’t natural and automatic.

With that said, let me describe my professional self-care mission.

Dr. Matt Hersh, founder of The Thriving Therapist

Dr. Matt Hersh

I’m a sensitive soul (i.e., Highly Sensitive Temperament), husband, dad of 2 youngish kids, and a cancer survivor.

Throughout my work at various training institutions and private practice settings, I’ve fully realized that risk of burnout and professional fatigue is quite real.

And it’s everywhere.

I don’t know any mental health professional who’s immune to these occupational realities.

But when we avoid the subject, we unwittingly bring more suffering to our lives.

And we accidentally reinforce the notion that we should simply “be fine” and to “keep moving forward” even when we’re silently suffering.

The factors that contribute to our stress, unease, and overwhelm often run in the background like a smart phone slowly draining its battery.

But don’t you deserve to tune in to truly know when and how your battery is depleting itself?

And don’t you deserve to know how to tap into the vital processes that keep you feeling awake, purposeful, present, and self-compassionate – for yourself, for your clients, and for your loved ones?

I strongly believe that you deserve these things without question and with full recognition that you yourself can be a non-negotiable priority (without feeling self-indulgent, selfish, guilty, or self-pitying)!
