Helping professionals

If so, you are not alone! We all need to be well to do good work, to raise our families, to learn our important life lessons, to support and love each other, and to bring to the world our unique gifts, talents, and contributions.

If you are a social worker, teacher, mental health, or other health care provider, clergy, first responder, coach, leader, or anyone feeling stressed and overwhelmed, this book is for you!

You do not need to live and work in a state of dis-ease.

If you are like many who are seeking a way towards healthy living through self-improvement there is not a moment more to wait.

This book is a self-help professional development guide.

Helping professionals must value wellness enough to build a life and professional practice around Self-Care and support one another to do the same. These are all Revolutionary acts!

This book is the why, what, and how for establishing Self-Care as a permanent and important part of your every-day life and work.

The 5 Pillars of Self Care

Pillar 1 — Define Self-Care

Pillar 2 — Write a Values Statement

Pillar 3 — Make a Self-Care Plan

Pillar 4 — Recognize Impairment and Focus on Prevention

Pillar 5 — Support Others in Their Self-Care Plans

Self-Care, if revolutionized, fundamentally changes our way of relating to ourselves and to one another, our health care systems, and our legislation and regulations. If we are determined and committed to being well, to loving ourselves and to supporting one another, we can change the course of action. This is a Revolution!!

Meet Ellen Rondina

A licensed master social worker (LMSW), a certified coach, a university professor, a metaphysical minister, and a professional musician, Ellen Rondina teaches, speaks, and writes about music, wellness, spirituality, and human behavior, including self-care, mindfulness, and how to make and sustain change in one’s life.

She has been doing this work for more than 20 years and has been on her own self-care path since childhood! Ellen had her burnout early when at 16 she found herself unable to get out of bed for a couple of months. This set her on her self-care path and the realization that self-care is for everyone.

Ellen Rondina

Ellen has taught music to people of all ages, anger management to people with felony convictions, and parenting and money management to families who were experiencing homelessness. She has been sought after as a trainer and speaker in areas from bullying to mindfulness, and supported everything and everyone in between. Ellen is passionate about personal growth, discovery, spirit, and finding and helping others find their rhythm. Her mission is to guide people into their own awareness and to support them in putting their intentions into practice.

As a social justice and wellness advocate, her approach is from a strengths perspective, and she uses her broad knowledge and experience to creatively meet each person in a place that feels comfortable. She is committed to providing the space, intention, insight, and support that allows people to have empowering conversations that support self-care.

Born in the Boston, Massachusetts area, she has had a rich journey of life experience and formal education, including growing up in a musical family and becoming a professional musician at the age of ten, traveling and studying in West Africa, and pursuing a healing path.

Ellen finds balance in her work and being with her husband and son. They love to do anything outside, especially hike and be at the beach, and their favorite family game is “Boo!”

Praise for Self-Care Revolution

David Webber ISCF

Ellen is to be congratulated on this contribution to the self-care revolution.”

“The Self-Care Revolution has arrived! Self-care is a practical, person-centred set of activities that we should all be doing to maintain our health, wellness and wellbeing. Through self-care people can be healthier and remain so into old age, managing minor ailments themselves. They can also better manage, delay or even prevent the appearance of lifestyle diseases such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and many cancers.

"Playing a vital role in health and not least in encouraging people to self-care, helping professionals are in the front line of the revolution. They can and should be role models themselves, practising what they preach. In her valuable eBook Ellen Rondina focuses on helping the care-giving professionals themselves to self-care. The book presents a practical guide to what self-care is, assessing one’s self-care situation, identifying strengths, overcoming barriers and making a personal self-care plan. Ellen is to be congratulated on this contribution to the self-care revolution.”

—David E. Webber Ph.D, President, International Self-Care Foundation (ISF)

Saving grace to the caregivers and healers”

“Self-Care Revolution is a saving grace to the caregivers and healers of the world that must, in order to continue their much needed work, take care of themselves first. Ellen’s five pillars provide a road map for wellness from the inside out. Combining engaging stories with practical action oriented steps and journaling exercises, this book will inspire you to live a happier, healthier life."

—Kathryn Kemp Guylay, award-winning and bestselling author of six books and transformational leader

Read an Excerpt from Self-Care Revolution

In a time of increased violence, fear, and anxiety, and a time of ever-dwindling resources for the people and places who need them the most, the work of teachers, social workers, mental health and other health providers, clergy, first responders, coaches, healers, and others on the front lines is getting so much harder. Our work stressors and demands and the lack of focus and support around Self-Care have made it difficult for helping professionals to practice Self-Care in any kind of sustained and meaningful way. We are working longer hours, we have more clients, we are faced with an increased need from our aging population and from a growing opioid addiction epidemic, and school shootings are in the daily news, just to name a few tangible stresses. Helping professionals are on the front lines of the escalating violence, threats, and unhealthy responsive behaviors, both personally and professionally. This is all happening in our work environments; meanwhile we try to balance our work’s expectations with our own lives, our families, friends, hobbies, and of course, our health and wellness.

Here is the discomfort that Ashley, a mid-career master’s level child protective worker, is currently experiencing:

“I feel obligated to this particular path because this is what I do. I don’t know what else I would do that would feel as important. I love investigations, but I have an indefinable need for something to be different. I’m not sure if this is the job or, if something else changed in my life, whether the job could stay the same? I move faster from being compassionate to being authoritative. I don’t know whether this is a red flag for compassion fatigue, or if I am getting better at my job.”

Her experience — she calls it “compassion fatigue” — is unfortunately not unique, and I am certain many of you reading this book can relate. The statistics for how hard and long we work and the effects of these behaviors and schedules is profound and widespread. We are working longer hours and working during hours of the day when we might otherwise be resting or sleeping. The balance is off, creating a cycle of struggle between our wellness and how we are able to be present and available in our work and in our lives.

“Practical insights and strategies to deal with the stress...

“This is the book I wish I’d had at the beginning of my career as a clinical psychologist! Combining relatable personal examples with her decades of professional experience, Ellen offers practical insights and strategies to deal with the stress and burnout that too often goes hand-in-hand with being a helping professional.

She dives deep into self-care practices, going beyond bubble baths and the common things we think about with self-care. Ultimately, she offers a way to relate more compassionately with ourselves, which leads to more resilience for us and better outcomes for those we serve.”  

Barbara Markway, Ph.D., Psychologist & Author

“An organized and thorough road map”

“There is no doubt in my mind that Ellen Rondina’s new e-book will become an important tool for first responders and professionals offering trauma informed care.  She offers all helping professionals a clear and in-depth way to explore their own self care needs by identifying five pillars of self care. Rondina makes it clear that we as providers are responsible for doing this work, however, her book provides us with an organized and thorough road map.  The workbook style affords the professional the opportunity to explore their truth, their values, and their obstacles. It is brilliantly written and deeply satisfying and supportive for those who give so much of themselves to their community.”
