Beyond Self-Care: Ethics of Practicing Healthy Social Work

Due to the global health situation, Washington University is enacting a distance learning policy impacting all Professional Development offerings until at least Memorial Day (late May). We are currently working with individual instructors to determine whether each offering will be postponed or offered as scheduled in an online format. Most webpages are now updated to reflect this information. Thank you for your patience in these uniquely dynamic times.

Preferred registration deadline: April 24th

This workshop will be conducted in a virtual Zoom meeting online format.

Sometimes even deep breaths, a hot bath, and a walk after work just aren’t enough to combat feelings of burnout or compassion fatigue.  Social workers who are overwhelmed and stressed may struggle to uphold the core ethical responsibilities of commitment to our clients, respecting client self-determination and maintaining appropriate boundaries.

This workshop will explore the connections between practicing ethical social work and employing evidence-based strategies to maintain mental, physical, and spiritual health as a helper. Attendees will learn and practice healthy social work skills and create an individualized healthy social work plan.

This class meets the licensure requirement for 3 hours of continuing education in ethics.

General Admission: $60**
Class size is limited to 36.
