Too often, Self Care is misguided in its promotion. Currently there are over 62 million posts about Self Care on Instagram and many of them are just plain wrong. Self Care is not about bath bombs and yoga retreats.
Self Care is a life long habit and culture. It is the practice of individuals looking after their own health and wellbeing based on the knowledge and information available to them. It is a decision-making process that empowers individuals to look after their own health and wellbeing efficiently and conveniently, in collaboration with health and social care professionals as needed.
WHO defines self-care as “the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a healthcare provider.”

All About WOW Self Care School
We find the program best suits three core groups:
1. The Helping Professions – keen to take a refresher in their own Self Care, and looking for a valuable Self Care tool to recommend to their patients and clients. (We also offer a free Emergency Self Care Program as a community service).
2. High Achieving Business People who crave something more in life and are looking for meaning and purpose. You possibly have been through a tough time of late and know that your own Self Care needs attention and Self Love.
3. Advocates and Activists who are actively involved in social justice issues such as Domestic and Family Violence, Climate Change, Gender Equity, Patient Activism and more.
Self Care School has intakes each year during March, September and November. It is an 8 month online training program with a new module released each month. Attendance at a 5 day immersive is required to become a full licensee and registered to deliver the program to your community.

There are 8 modules in the Self Care Curriculum. The modules are video based, with additional resources for each module.
