Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • Increase awareness of your own emotions and early warning signs of increased stress
  • Be able to identify and implement an action plan to manage any ‘threats’ to your emotional wellbeing.

Managing your own emotions

Some areas of practice may require greater attention to emotional self-care such as palliative care, emergency department work, child protection and mental health.  It is important to recognise and manage emotional health when on placement for future practice (good emotional self-care can reduce rates of burn out and vicarious trauma).  You may be exposed to experiences that you are not comfortable with but that will provide you with a rich opportunity to learn and help others.  Read the 'Maintaining Emotional Well Being' section of this website prior to completing the learning task.

Discuss your findings with your clinical educator early in the placement to establish a strategic plan for the remainder of your experience.

(Note:  Students will need to join as a ClinEdAus member to access and log the guided reflection activities below.)
