Helping Professional Development and Care
Soul Quest Canada also offers services specifically for helping professionals. Jessica Rosin has long been fascinated by the extent to which members of the “helping professions” (health care providers, teachers, and others) are engaged in self-reflection leading to greater personal awareness and development – and ultimately, better professional presence and abilities.
In a paper published in the January 2015 volume of Journal of Counseling and Development, “The Necessity of Counselor Individuation for Fostering Reflective Practice”, Jessica argues that counselor individuation is pivotal if one is to acquire the capabilities necessary for reflective practice. To do this, individuals must transition to a higher stage of development and what Carl Jung called the second half of life of the individuation process – the integration of the unconscious into the conscious realm. A paradigm shift, or fundamental change in worldview is frequently necessary to trigger such a transition. Furthermore, this calls for deeper (soulcentric) forms of personal exploration and integration. While this is not easy work – and is therefore most helpfully done in concert with mentors, collegial support, and personal therapy – Jessica notes that depth work is crucial for individuals to acquire the necessary higher cognitive and affective capabilities necessary for reflective practice as they progress in the second half of life.

The need for a progression in development, and therefore engagement in soulcentric forms of personal development, is true for all helping professionals. Today, many helping professionals are overworked and operating with little work/home life balance. This leaves them either at risk of or in a state of burn out. Further, despite the outward appearance of success, they experience a sense of isolation, disconnection, and lack of fulfillment. Ultimately, helping professionals are denied access to their deepest potentials, while simultaneously having a negative impact on the lives they touch.
Soul Quest Canada develops programs specifically designed for the personal development of health care professionals. The focus of these programs is to assist professionals in undertaking the personal work necessary for them to connect with internal resources, strive toward their truest Self, to interact with others in healthier ways, and to discover a deeper expression of the work they do.
