The Self-Care Imperative

The stressful landscape of education these days has increased burnout rates of public school professionals, making practicing self-care essential. On December 16, 2021, CAS hosted a 1-hour webinar featuring Dr. Paula Gill Lopez, associate professor, department chair, and school psychology program director in Fairfield University’s Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions. In her presentation, Dr. Gill Lopez uses empirical data, video clips, and hands-on self-care practices to help school leaders learn the what, why, and how of self-care. Much of the webinar is spent spent on mindfulness-infused strategies to incorporate into a customized self-care plan. The one key take-away from this webinar: Self-care is NOT selfish.
