Those who serve in the human services field often encourage clients to participate in effective stress management and self-care, and with good reason.

  1. Understand the fundamental role of good self-care in good client-care.

  2. Explore factors that contribute to stress.

  3. Evaluate the benefits and costs associated with stress.
