Dr. Jason Branch, LPC, ACS, NCC

Protecting Your Peace in the Middle of the Storm

The purpose of this keynote session is to provide a systematic approach to enhancing the helping professional in increasing their self-awareness, self-confidence and self-care. It’s important for helping professionals to maintain balance and practice self-care in order to consistently pour into so many others without losing themselves in the process. This presentation will provide an interactive learning environment in which attendees will learn about effective ways to practice self-care by learning and utilizing the E.S.P.M. Model for self-care. Participants will gain more insight about investing in their own emotional, spiritual, physical, and mental health and well-being. A variety of instructive methods will be used to enhance attendees’ understanding of increasing self-awareness, self-confidence and self-care. The presentation includes a PowerPoint presentation, videos, interactive discussion, and the creation of their own self-care plan.


As a result of attending this keynote presentation, the attendees will:

  1. be able to understand the importance of maintaining balance by setting healthy boundaries and practicing self-care on a daily basis using the E.S.P.M. Model for self-care.
  2. be able to learn practical ways to reduce stress, depression and anxiety related to serving in multiple roles in the helping profession.
  3. be able to create a strategic individualized self-care plan to increase self-awareness, self-confidence and self-care.
