“It’s more important than ever now that therapists find ways to pivot in order to self care while continuing to care for clients via teletherapy. One simple way to do this is by setting longer breaks between client sessions (ie 10-15 minutes) to get up and move around or stretch. Another is to host virtual case consultations or virtual lunches with other therapists. Connection is key to self care, and social distancing doesn’t mean we need to isolate. Host that virtual coffee break or midday lunch and connect with others.”
