In this special podcast episode, we, Dr. Melissa Tiessen and Dr. Karen Dyck, dedicate our discussion to what is perhaps our favourite 'C' from our 4 C's model of self-care—Courage.  We provide a quick overview of our 4 C’s model of self-care and why Courage is the C that we like discussing the most, as well as why we view it as the essential fuel that helps to move us from thinking about and planning self-care activities to acting on them.  And we had the pleasure of incorporating audio clips submitted by members of our Intentional Therapist community to highlight the importance of Courage in self-care as well as how Courage intersects with our other C’s and with a willingness to be vulnerable.  We end the episode by sharing some of the ways Courage has shown up in our own self-care journeys.     

Episode highlights:

  • A brief overview of the 4 C’s model of self-care
  • Why Courage is such an important part of our model
  • How Courage can show up in both our work and personal life
  • The connection between Courage and a willingness to be vulnerable
  • How we have incorporated Courage into our own self-care

Thank you so much to all the like-minded Intentional Therapist community members who shared their courageous self-care examples for this episode!
