Recent research has shown the impact of career development on overall mental health and the key role that career practitioners can play in improving their clients’ well-being.

But as the career practitioner, who is looking after our well-being?

Now more than ever, it has become critical to look at our own wellness to prepare us to better support and serve our clients through continuing uncertainty.

This webinar series will provide tools, resources and methodologies using a multi-disciplinary wellness approach that addresses managing the stress of the unknown in our future or our “new normal” resulting from the recent pandemic.

We will create a safe space empowering career practitioners to effectively role model wellness. We will share tools to develop resilience and coping strategies, maintaining our sense of calm as we build hope for our clients on their career journey.

Why You Should Attend

You will be provided with an enhanced understanding about why wellness is a critical element of any career development practice and be introduced to ways to self-assess as well as assess the wellness of your clients.

More importantly, you will practice simple yet effective hands-on methods that you can immediately apply to your own wellness quotient through preventative self-care techniques.

As a participant you will leave with a toolkit for nurturing health using a prevention model. This equates to better personal wellness and a greater understanding about ways to support the well-being of your clients.

Our three presenters bring a rich and diverse set of education, training and personal experience in different disciplines of wellness. Their goal is to highlight the correlation between career development practices, career practitioners’ personal discipline, and client wellness providing a more holistic approach to career development.
