Abstract

Self-care means taking responsibility for yourself to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle at work and in your personal world through individually determined, proactive activities. Many universities are now looking at self-care for faculty and staff as essential to optimal functioning and success for both these individuals and the students whom they serve. The COE SUN Program at CSUN is exciting and innovative in that it was created in a decentralized fashion by the participants themselves and is collecting research evidence demonstrating its effectiveness. This interactive session will describe the program highlighting research findings, modeling self-care activities, and sharing resources.

Abstract

Summarizes the development and results of a recently implemented self-care program for faculty and staff members in the Michael D. Eisner College of Education at California State University, Northridge. Survey, observation and interview data indicate that the program is effectively making significant inroads toward a cultural shift in the perception of self-care. It is posited that if greater numbers of institutions implement such programs, they will be better able to promote student success, to produce higher levels of research and to serve as exemplary educational models.
