Identify 3 appropriate sites and detail at least one site you believe to be most appropriate for each of the 3 levels of care, (share with a hyperlink) stating clearly how you will use this site to benefit your work/self. Provide examples where possible of 1) Materials available 2) How could material/information be used?
Boundaries.me – (Most Appropriate) a newer website of Dr. Henry Cloud that is a membership site providing access to his many online courses. I watched many of Dr. Cloud’s videos while I was going through a very difficult time (some are still on YouTube), and this resource formalizes some of that great content with new courses, coaching and structure. This site can be used as a way to bring a small group into a mental health professional’s private community and serve multiple possible outcomes for the group.
tonyrobbins.com – ok yes, it may be over-used, but the results that people have seen over time with his content and coaching cannot be denied. If you don’t know about Tony, any self-care curriculum must include, at the very least, a reference to him and his resources for life strategy and your own care.
Healstress.com Podcast – ok, I have to do a pitch for some of our own work. We created an online community with the intent of helping others heal their stress and feel better. As destiny would have it, we were pulled in a different direction and decided to spin that community down a little while ago. What remains currently however, are some exceptional interviews that we did with people around the world – documenting their stories and their relationship to stress. I encourage you to take a listen. The podcast can be found on iTunes and Spotify and as recordings on davescheer.com. They can be used anywhere personal experiences with stress can help your own journey through difficult times.
The MindBody App (available on your favorite app store) – created by the Mindbody company (a provider of software to fitness and wellness studios) the app assists in finding local wellness classes, can track your activity, steps taken and calories burned. It helps manage your fitness classes that you have booked in the past and can help you build a schedule or track fitness passes.
Cloud, H. (2010). Necessary endings : the employees, businesses, and relationships that all of us have to give up in order to move forward. Harperbusiness.
In a very accessible way, Dr. Cloud writes about the importance of recognizing and accepting the endings in our lives as a way to make room for new things to grow. The book is filled with practical examples that can apply to a variety of circumstances to individual lives.
