Editor’s note: Please enjoy Genie Giaimo’s, Ph.D interview in “Working Towards a Trifecta: A WLN Special Issue on Wellness and Self-Care” .
…while we often take 15 minutes for a self-care/wellness break at the end of each session, consultants also record session notes. However, I have seen many consultants go over the scheduled 45 minutes because the client needed more support. So, one of the three legs (wellness/self-care, reportage, client need) of this end-of-session trifecta has to give. Often, the leg that gives out is the self-care portion.
–Giaimo’s observations about her writing center.
Former CWCAB editor, Brian Hotson, interviewed Giaimo to talk about wellness in the writing center and WLN’s Special Issue on Wellness and Self-Care.
This interview is timely given our current situation, and we hope to follow up with the issue’s editors and authors for insights given our current situation.
