Early in the pandemic, Lara presented a series one-hour free webinars on Emotional Self-Care for the Helping Professions. In 2020, she presented at the 37th Annual NADD Conference and Exhibit on a similar topic. We have posted a recording of one of these webinars for anyone who missed it or would like to see it again.
Emotional Self-Care for the Helping Professions

We will explore these ideas and introduce mindfulness-based practices as the base for supporting ourselves in challenging times.
