Association of Self Care for Future Health Professionals

The Association of Self Care for Future Health Professionals (ASC) at The University of North Carolina Wilmington seeks to provide an atmosphere for current majors in the College of Health & Human Services to learn valuable self-care skills and build resiliency against burnout, both while at UNCW and when they enter their future careers in human service. This organization targets the unique stressors that students within CHHS face in pursuit of their education and preparation to work in the field of health and human services. This association will combat the issue of high burnout rates in professionals engaged in direct human service work by encouraging students to develop the necessary skills which would prevent stress and fatigue whilst in the educational and work setting. By incorporating an interdisciplinary approach, this organization encourages students to work collaboratively with other disciplines in the field of human services. This is an important skill to develop while a student at UNCW, as interdisciplinary teamwork is the modality utilized when providing care for individuals in the field of health and human services. Any student within CHHS is highly recommended to attend regular meetings and events sponsored by ASC. If you're interested in joining, please complete this interest form.
