How To Foster Wellness and Self-care for Communicators

If the events of the past three years have taught us anything, it is the importance of mental health and self-care. Often, the role of the PR or communications professional is to keep the organization moving forward, counsel senior leaders and guide strategic responses to the latest issue or attack, in addition to producing content, managing relationships and other responsibilities.

Given the frenzied pace, seriousness and constant adaptations required in responding to a pandemic, social justice movements and sweeping changes to the work environment, PR professionals may neglect their own self-leadership and self-care, which can lead to burnout, mental health declines and decreased job performance and satisfaction.

Join this PRSA Learning webinar series and learn strategies and techniques for self-care and routines to help you be a more effective professional and leader — and help you stay energized and engaged for the next challenge, opportunity or crisis. Your guides, a veteran public relations professor and a sought-after communicator, coach and consultant, will guide you through actionable strategies and lessons from young and mid-career PR professionals, coaches, flight attendants and more, and explore frameworks to manage difficult situations by deploying curiosity and emotional intelligence.
