Up to 75% of social workers may experience burnout at some point in their careers. On October 8th 1 pm ET / 10 am PST I’m offering a free 2-hour workshop designed to help social workers take a more effective approach to self-care and begin to implement practices that will help them not only survive but thrive, in a profession that often places a high demand on personal resources.
You will learn about threats to well-being in the social work practice, including the three core elements of burnout: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and low sense of accomplishment. You will also learn about the PERMA model of well-being and learn how to apply evidence-based practices from the field of positive psychology, including gratitude, playfulness, personal strengths, kindness, and positive attention to prevent burnout and achieve a higher level of enjoyment and meaning in your role as social worker.
I will also explore the role of mindfulness and self-compassion in building a stronger foundation for resilience. Mindfulness can also play a prominent role in expanding positive emotional experiences on a daily basis, and participants will have an opportunity to incorporate it into a weekly wellness plan.
