Early indicators of increasing burnout among healthcare professionals and the general population during the COVID-19 pandemic add a challenging facet to the difficulty of engaging in regular self-care. Considerations for enhancing mental, behavioral, and physical health with intentional integration into daily activities can enhance provider functioning with parallel benefits of organizational support and individual opportunities for enhanced well-being. The second part of this Self-Care lecture series will provide participants with updated information on the need for self-care within a professional and individual context. Information will focus on expanding upon previously developed concepts of burnout and methods for maintaining motivation for self-care among health professionals while incorporating recommendations for managing the challenges of a shifting substance use disorder treatment landscape. Participants will have opportunities to consider practical ways to enhance physical, emotional, and behavioral self-care practices through interactive activities, discussions, and identification of resources for continued self-care practice beyond the session.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

1)Recognize two (2) impacts on the physical and mental well-being of health professionals that result from physical distancing.

2)Apply three (3) cognitive or affective coping mechanisms to manage daily stressors from within the SUD workplace.

3)Generalize at least three (3) benefits of empathy and mindfulness-based self-care in enhancing care for patients with Substance Use Disorders.

4)Specify three (3) ways to utilize a structured thought or behavior record to improve self-care routines.

5)Distinguish three (3) cultural differences in self-care definitions and practices and identify at least two (2) strategies for incorporating these different perspectives and practices.
