An important topic concerning a healthy workplace was given as well as preparing to heal. The standards of self care were met with unanimous approval by the participants.
The Professional Quality of Life test was an assest to the book and allowed the women to identify their positive as well as negative aspects and how they were handling their current situation at work.
This book gave the participants a look at maintaining a positive work environment and reducing stress and promoting personal power which they own.
Ultimately the goal is to manage self-care effectively and allow peace into our lives and this book did the job.
The author writes with such clarity and understanding. This guide takes all the work out for you. Patricia Smith gives it to you so you can "get it".
