Webinar: Self Care for Social Work Managers
September 27, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDTFree
Social Work managers are at high risk of burnout, secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue due to the daily exposure to cadministrative pressures that can include: oppressed and/or traumatized client populations, fundraising goals, program management and staff turnover.
Self-care is an essential social work survival skill and professional development priority. Self-care refers to activities and practices that we can engage in on a regular basis to reduce stress and maintain and enhance our short- and long-term health and well-being, both personally and professionally.
In this workshop we will review contemporary research and discuss the dynamics of burnout, secondary stress and compassion fatigue as occupational hazards. We will complete the workshop with an examination of evidence-based self-care strategies that enhance well being, reduce the likelihood of burnout and improve performance in all social work practice settings.
After completing this training series, participants will be able to:
• DEFINE burnout
• DEFINE secondary traumatic stress
• DEFINE compassion fatigue
• RECOGNIZE signs of burnout
• RECOGNIZE secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue
• IDENTIFY risks of burnout, secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue in staff members and supervisees
