Self Care Lab

The Self-Care Lab (SCL) is the first known lab specifically dedicated to empirically investigating self-care among helping professionals. SCL has conducted broad ranging self-care research and education among social workers, educators, nurses, law enforcement, teachers, and educators in higher education, among others. To date, SCL has established an array of formal research partnerships with investigators and academic institutions in Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Finland, and Ethiopia, to name a few. Through its work, the lab seeks to address potentially toxic employment conditions.
