Promoting Counselor Trainee Self-Care Through Gamification of Wellness
Counselor self-care and attention to wellness is an important focus of pedagogical endeavors. In this presentation, attendees will be introduced to the Wellness Tribe, a gamified approach to encouraging and supporting counselor trainees in the development of positive health and wellness habits. Wellness Tribe incorporates Adlerian models of wellness with group support and engagement to create short-and-long term reinforcement strategies for self-care behaviors. The impact of wellness and self-care on student performance will be discussed, and presenters will additionally share from their experiences in the classroom of how the Wellness Tribe supports increased opportunities for supervisory support and gatekeeping.
