Workshop Details

Presenter: Alison Beauvais Carris, BCBA, LCPC Founder of Behavioral Learning

Overview: The nature of our work can be mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally taxing. As such, developing our own self-care practices to combat burnout is paramount. Our society stresses the importance of caring for ourselves, but how do we put it into practice? Through the lens of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, this presentation breaks down what self-care is (and isn’t!) and outlines strategies that we as caregivers can employ to “fill our own cups” in order to live a life we truly value.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the origins of the term self-care.
  • Articulate personal and professional actions that align with the value of self-care.
  • Exposure to tools to explore your own personal and professional values.
  • Identify at least two (2) practical recommendations for applying self-care in your own life.


Professional development workshops are sponsored by a partnership between the Community Mental Health Board of Oak Park Township, Riveredge Hospital, and Streamwood Behavioral Healthcare System.
