Episode 5: Julie Radlauer-Doerfler on Practicing Professional Self Care
This is The Optimistic Advocate, a weekly interview show that follows Scott Bryant-Comstock and his guests, as they explore how effective advocates create change for themselves and for others.
If you are a person interested in advocacy, in improving yourself or helping others make improvement in their lives, and would like tangible tips on how to do so, then this is the show for you!
In this episode of The Optimistic Advocate, Scott engages in conversation with Julie Radlauer-Doerfler, co-founder of the Ronik-Radlauer Group, a leadership development firm in Florida.
As a busy mental health advocate and leadership consultant, Julie Radlauer-Doerfler spends her time helping organizations throughout the United States create change, improve their skills in serving families, and establish themselves as leaders in human services in the communities in which they live. Julie does all of this while maintaining a healthy balance with her role as wife and mother. It's no small feat that she is busier than ever during the height of the Pandemic and a nation in turmoil about racial injustice.
Self-care, Julie says, is critical, if mental health advocates are to be productive and useful in their work with organizations and community leaders. She shares some practical tips in this interview.
