Contemplative Self-Care Practices for Christian Practitioners

Join Madeline Stiers, MSW, LCSW, and Director Of Clinical And Supportive Services at HHCI as she presents Contemplative Self-Care Practices for Christian Practitioners

This presentation will begin with a brief overview of research related to compassion fatigue, self-care, the role of faith in positive coping, and burnout among Christian mental health professionals. Madeline Stiers will address unique issues faced by Christian practitioners: secondary-trauma effects on faith; shame and guilt around holding multiple service centered roles; stress related to bridge-building roles between professional ethics and church traditions; and maintaining our call as Christians in secular settings. Additionally, this presentation will provide ideas and practical exercises that blend psycho-education with Christian contemplative practices for rest and renewal. These tools can be used personally, as part of staff retreats, or in pastoral-based work settings for spiritual formation.

Speaker: Madeline Stiers, MSW, LCSW, and Director Of Clinical And Supportive Services at Hope and Healing Center & Institute
