As healing professionals, we spend so much time putting others first, we put ourselves last.

Stressed and burned out, we brush off our own trauma, ignore our own needs, confuse “self-care” with selfishness, and tell ourselves to “suck it up” for one more day.

But too many of us are leaving the fields we once loved, numbing our moral injuries through self-medication, or worse.

Whether you’re a therapist, nurse, social worker, or any helping professional, you can’t afford to continue to work wounded, trying to pour into others from your empty cup.

That’s why Harvard-trained trauma expert, board-certified psychiatrist, and author of The Wounded Healer, Dr. Omar Reda developed this training…

…to help you break the toxic cycle of caregiver trauma, toxic stress and silent suffering so you can thrive and regain the joy of serving others - while not leaving yourself behind in the process.

When you watch Dr. Reda for this inspirational one-day workshop you’ll get:

  • Clear and practical guidance on avoiding and combating burnout
  • Exercises to reignite your sense of hope and purpose at work
  • A guide to making space to heal so you can more effectively heal others
  • Tools and activities that can be leveraged in day-to-day life
  • And much more!

Now more than ever before we need to recognize that self-care is not a luxury; it’s a responsibility.

Purchase today and let the healing begin.
