Bio:
Sabrina N’Diaye, PhD, LCSW-C, is a therapist, storyteller and peacebuilder. As an integrative psychotherapist and founder of the Heart Nest Center for Peace and Healing in Baltimore, Maryland, she lovingly serves women, couples, other healers, and small groups. Her approach to healing is a blend of wisdom, science, and ancient spiritual practices. As a student of the late Sufi Master Sidi Muhammad al-Jamal of Jerusalem, she incorporates Sufi healing into her work with individuals, families, and communities. Sabrina received her PhD in Mind-Body Medicine from Saybrook University, where she studied the use of complementary and alternative interventions for physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. Sabrina is a highly respected member of the treatment community, and frequently lectures on cultural diversity, spirituality, stress management, self-care for healers, addictions, and the “magic” of connection. In addition to clinicians and other human service professionals, her many audiences include police departments, flight attendants, healing artists, peacebuilders, and aspiring writers. She is currently writing her first book, The Laugh of Love, based on her maternal grandmother’s ability to transcend multiple traumas and chronic illness. A devoted wife, mother, daughter, and life-long learner, Sabrina remains humbled by the healing power of compassion, love and forgiveness. Her website is www.drsabrinandiaye.com.

Trauma-Informed Certificate Programs: This workshop fulfills the Foundation requirements for “Self-care in Trauma Work” or can be used for Elective hours.

This training will benefit clinicians and other professionals who sometimes feel stuck, bored, overwhelmed, tired of or triggered by the work with trauma survivors and other clients. Helping professionals are born with the gift of assisting others in their healing journey. In our desire to do this, we often lose sight of the most important element- ourselves. Yet, our efficacy as professionals is really contingent upon the extent to which we take care of ourselves personally to prevent problems related to compassion fatigue, counter-transference, burnout and vicarious traumatization. In this training, participants will have the opportunity to didactically and creatively explore their own growth journey as professionals. In safe, playful and fun ways, we will incorporate select meditation, art modalities, movement, writing exercises, and breath-work, enabling participants to intellectually and creatively process and grow from their insights, and recognize how these can help maintain professional and personal well-bring. It will re-invigorate a sense of competence, strengthen boundaries, and re-connect participants to a level of self-awareness and self-care that can enhance your professional life as well as your personal life. All of the creative modalities and processing strategies can also be used by professionals in their work with clients.


Learning objectives:
• Analyze how self-care influences clinical competence;
• Describe how to improve the balance between personal and professional life;
• Use assessment tools to identify how such work may uniquely affect professionals and their issues related to compassion fatigue, counter-transference, burnout and vicarious traumatization;
• Apply at least five creative strategies that participants can use with themselves and their clients to address and promote increased self-care.
