PLENARY PRESENTATION FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19 7:00 – 9:30 PM New Rules for Radicals: Self - Care and Spirituality for Caregivers in the Age of the Quadruple Pandemic Willard W. C. Ashley, Sr., DMin, Rev, SCP, NCPsyA, CGP How can caregivers sustain the soul of their work during challenging times? COVID-19, systemic racism, violence, and partisan politics have created what is called a quadruple pandemic that has taken a toll on our professional and personal lives.The multiplicity of our social identities, our soul and spirituality have contributed to how we work with our clients. The events of the past few years highlighted the need to create new radical rules for how we care for ourselves. Self-care decreases exhaustion and prepares us for the future. A more active engagement in spirituality feeds the soul. Dr. Ashley’s combined experiences as a psychoanalyst and spiritual leader have led him to develop new rules for radicals to care for themselves in the age of the quadruple pandemic. He will provide helpful insights to create a sustainable spirituality that is socially conscious and steeped in psychoanalytic integrity.
