Putting The "Self" Back in Self-Care
Julie Squires

2 CE credits

MVMA/New England VMA Member Rate: $60
Non-Member Rate: $100

Virtual Event via Zoom

Self-care is one of the most misunderstood concepts in wellness resulting in one either just checking the box and going right back to a life of unsustainable demands or simply ignoring it all together.  In either case, it lacks in effectiveness. In order to cultivate resilience in life and vet med, self-care is an essential component and we have to stop using it against ourselves. 

In this session attendees will learn:
 - to identify the toxic societal messages we (especially women) receive
 - the difference between "fake" and "real" self-care
 - the 4 essential (and surprising) ingredients to self-care 
 - how nervous system regulation is a fundamental part of it all
