SELF CARE IS NOT SELFISH
Working on no longer being in captivity to activity and knowing the importance of rest, Dr. Guillory wants to encourage others to take care of self while having some fun. Burnout is a word too many know but at times feel guilty when taking a break. If one is operating on 10% or fumes, how in the world can he/she give 100% to clients? Using concepts on rest along with some of Dr. Brene Brown's study on vulnerability and self-judgment commentary on asking for help, this interactive workshop highlights why we don't ask for help, how to ask for help, and why it's important to ask for help and take a break. Participants will be guided through various activities in order to assist them in uncovering why asking for help might be difficult as well as creating a self-care plan.

CULTURAL HUMILITY: the “ability to maintain an interpersonal stance that is other-oriented (or open to the other) in relation to aspects of cultural identity that are most important to the [person].”
Dr. Guillory addresses two of the three tenets:
Critical Self Reflection and lifelong learning
Understanding power imbalances
Attempting to address topic around culture can be a challenging yet so necessary.
Three essential elements are required to do this:
a. Self-assessment & Critical self reflection
b. truly listening & seeking to understand rather than respond,
c. an environment that allows such things to occur
Regardless of the training audience, two things remain constant: 1) the desire to be heard and 2) the desire for differences to be valued.
Dr. Guillory has developed a framework that combines dialogue vs debate tenets, solution- focused interviewing techniques, narrative theory, self-assessment, being culturally grounded and cultural humility.
