Aromatherapy for Self-Care

Estimated Time to Complete: 1 Hour
The aim for this online activity is to gain knowledge to practice aromatherapy to enhance their own self-care in dealing with current stressors. Most health care providers do not have knowledge to safely and wisely use aromatherapy for self-care. This activity is designed to address these gaps. Participate Now!

Mindfulness and Compassion in Uncertain Times: Care for the Caregiver with Ron Siegel

How can you manage the intensity -- especially when in the thick of it? How can you care for yourself when you get home? Join Dr. Ron Siegal as he covers useful practices to address these and many other experiences. Participate Now!
This program was recorded in two parts in May 2020.
You may watch the video at no cost but there is a small $10 processing fee if you wish to obtain a CME or NCPD (CNE) certificate.

Care for the Caregivers, Coping in a Pandemic

The video from our webinar, Care for the Caregivers is now online at bucme.org/caregivers. You can just watch the video or, we offer the option to claim CME/CNE credit as well.

The Boston University School of Medicine Guerette Symposia series was founded in 2019 as a continuation of the popular series offered for mental health professionals for many years by Dr. Rob Guerette. The series was initially designed as a quarterly, live symposia series providing psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric social workers, psychiatric nurses, and allied mental health professionals with outstanding opportunities to combine a stimulating symposium in relaxing and diverse locations.

The quarterly offerings listed below are designed to offer professionals updates in recent advances in several widely varied areas of mental health. In addition to the didactic lectures, there will be ample time for interchange between the participants and presenters. All programs are conducted by distinguished faculty who are leaders in their field. CME, CNE along with CE credits for psychologists, social workers and licensed mental health counselors will be offered.
