It seems that social workers are experiencing higher levels of professional burnout and compassion fatigue after the coronavirus pandemic and that the pandemic often resulted in new depths of self-doubt, self-sabotage, and self-sacrifice as social workers navigated the new world. I admit that it can be hard to prioritize yourself and your wellness when you have a career focused on helping others, however, doing so is essential to a long and successful social work career. It is time we disconnect our work from our worth, recognize that being overworked is not a badge of honor, and refuse to deplete ourselves for a paycheck.

The mental and emotional wellness of a social worker is just as important as the mental and emotional wellness of their client. Many women in social work are wearing multiple hats in the home and on the job – carrying heavy caseloads, coordinating community support, and smiling through the mental, physical, and emotional burdens. But now it’s all about you. It’s your time. It’s time to prioritize your own mental health and overall wellness and I invite you to join me for a workshop created to give you downtime to retreat, reflect, and rejuvenate.

Participants in this interactive presentation will:

  1. Center their personal and professional needs
  2. Honor their unique paths
  3. Define social work career success for themselves
  4. Prioritize their wellness
