Impairment: Compassion for Self and Others
Integrity, Honesty, Appropriateness, Personal Conflicts, Recognizing Impairment, Seeking Assistance, Intervention and Prevention of Harm to Self, Others, Clients, and our Profession
The challenge is how to do this within the realm of our human efforts to avoid conflict, hide our vulnerabilities, mask our imperfections and fear of loss of our professional self and livelihood.
We will explore together what it REALLY means to be fully human beings doing the work we do. Understanding and coming to acceptance with fact that “what I do is NOT who I am”. Understanding and coming to terms that a person can be “good” at what they do AND still act in unprofessional and unethical ways.
I AM a human being with all the attributes of being fully present in this lifetime with all the joys/sorrows, connections/loneliness, health/illness, appropriate/inappropriate thoughts/actions, desire to help/desire to take advantage, intent to do no harm/desire to get my needs met.
Come prepared to use your thoughts/words about “others” to do some self-reflection. Come prepared to know your vulnerabilities to impairment and identify and make compassionate choices about healthier self-care.
I invite you to come be your wonderful human self, connected with courageous others and be your real self.
