Minding the Body: Self Care in the Age of Zoom with Robin Shaw and Oona Metz, LICSW
Many therapists are reporting physical discomfort and a new level of fatigue as they quickly transition to telehealth platforms. Back and neck pain, eye strain, exhaustion, increased anxiety, and decreased focus have made our work even harder as we navigate the Covid-19 crisis for ourselves and our clients.
This hour-long workshop will offer you some practical tools and methods for self care, before, during, and after your sessions with clients. Gentle and important strategies to move, to release, to care for self, and perhaps to find new ways of working with your clients while you are in this new paradigm.
Please note that this workshop will take place on Zoom. A code will be sent to registered participants by 2 pm the day of the workshop.
Fee $25 for NSGP Members $30 for Non Members

Each year, the NSGP Practice Development Committee offers ongoing, informal gatherings in order to educate our community of clinicians and to provide up to date information on all things that affect our practice. Our short format programs are cost effective and don’t interfere with work or play. They are a great way to connect with other clinicians and learn from local experts. Our events are open to NSGP members and non-members. We encourage all who are interested in growing a healthy and successful practice to attend. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
