DECEMBER 2020

1st, Tuesday, WEBINAR: "Self-Care as an Ethical Priority"  6pm - 8pm Mountain Time

Workshop Description:

Self-Care is necessary to maintain ourselves and to continue to provide competent, professional, and ethical care for those we serve. Often, self-care is not treated as a priority. When self-care is neglected our professional futures suffer and it can result in burn-out, compassion fatigue, or leaving the field completely.

The importance of self-care for social work professionals cannot be understated. To truly be competent and ethical professionals, we need to engage in regular self-care. In order to be effective in helping others, social workers must be able to help themselves first. There is the old adage that you cannot pour from an empty cup, meaning that you must replenish yourself before you can serve others. This expression is quite true for social workers. Despite the value of self-care, many helping professionals often find themselves caring for others and neglecting their own self-care. It is impossible to give when you yourself have nothing left to give. Restoring yourself cannot be viewed as a self-indulgent but rather should be viewed as a component of competent, ethical practice. 
Objectives: 
1. Participants will recognize the necessity of self-care as it relates to providing competent, professional, and ethical care for those they serve
2. Participants will understand the negative impact of burn-out and compassion fatigue on the social work profession
3. Participants will learn strategies to increase and prioritize self-care practices for themselves
