Lessons in Leadership within the Behavioral Health Environment

Presented by Karina Forrest-Perkins, MHR, LADC

January 26th, 2018


About the Presentation

Leadership can be a challenge no matter what discipline in which we might find ourselves. In an ever-changing environment like behavioral health, we find that leadership is many times under-resourced, is often driven by crisis, is rarely proactive regarding strategy, and often misses opportunities to mentor others to become leaders themselves.

This presentation will offer Leadership tips and lessons regarding how to lead with impact in the field of behavioral health and how to ensure the pace of change external to your environment is not the driver of the organization, your team is.

Fire Up or Burn Out!

As professionals, we are exposed to stress and trauma each day. Clients come to us for help and share with us extreme pain and shame. We must know how to deal with it, dissipate it and be balanced. In this presentation, we will discuss how the brain processes stress, review the self-care wheel, and implement the three principles to diffuse secondary trauma.
