Help for Helpers Self-Care Planning Workbook (Digital Download)


Dear helpers, healers, caregivers:

Feeling exhausted? Snapping at your people? Getting sick a lot? Unfortunately, there is a cost to caring, and work-related issues like secondary traumatic stress and burnout come with the territory. It is vital that you find ways to support your own capacity as you work to support others. I know, I know, far easier to say than to do. The stress continues to mount, yet the resources do not. If the term “self-care” gives you the ick, you’re not alone– the good news is “self-care” doesn’t have to mean stone massages or beach vacations. Consider this your guide to realistically exploring the ways in which you can support, nourish, and sustain yourself so that you can continue showing up for others and advocating for a just world.


This e-workbook is full of resources to build self-awareness around what works for you and what doesn’t, identify when you’re beginning to experience work-related stress, and implement intentional, consistent acts of care and nourishment for yourself. 


Because we need you now, more than ever.


“The expectation that we can be immersed in suffering and loss daily and not be touched by it is as unrealistic as expecting to be able to walk through water without getting wet.” Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen


Work-related stress syndromes like burnout, compassion fatigue, and secondary trauma are occupational hazards for those who provide care for others in a professional capacity. Intentional, consistent self-care (while, yes, a gross term) is vital in cultivating our capacity to be present in our work, offer compassionate support, and avoid causing harm to those in our care.


In this e-workbook, you’ll find:

  • Resources to build self-awareness
  • Information on symptoms of secondary trauma and burnout
  • Practices to utilize in the moment
  • Tools to help you reflect on current self-care practices and identify new ones
  • Habit trackers
  • ‘Brain Dump’ pages
  • Lots and lots of other good stuff


The digital download means you’ll receive the workbook as a PDF in your email. Do with it what you will– print it all out and put it in a cute binder (for my type A friends), fill it in via Adobe, or make copies of the pages that resonate with you. No limit on downloads, printing, or sharing. (I just ask you to keep the attribution at the bottom of the page)
