Self Care Webinar Series
Social work is a profession that is about supporting others, advocating for change, and promoting social justice. We do this in a myriad of different ways and working in a variety of settings. At times this important work can take precedence over our own health and wellbeing, despite our best intentions to prevent this occurring. In this webinar series we are offered the opportunity to consider why self-care is an important issue for social workers, identify compassion fatigue and hear what can help buffer the negative impacts of our work. We will also be given the tools to challenge the “Drama Triangle” that can impact on our workplace environments.
