Radical Self-Care for Social Workers, an intensive 3 Part Series - Session Three: Self-Care as a professional mandate: We and Us, advocacy and agency

Presenter:

Helen Gray is a qualified Social Worker with almost 20 years’ experience in statutory Child Protection, youth at risk, homelessness and family support with at risk families in the UK and Australia. In 2015, as a manager in a NGO, Helen experienced burnout and the effects of Vicarious Trauma and as a result in July 2016 ceased practicing as a social worker. Helen has since established her own business supporting Social Workers and front line practitioners to gain awareness, knowledge and skills to prevent the impact of Moral Distress, Vicarious Trauma and Burnout and promote professional sustainability. Helen provides individual coaching, team and workplace training and online programs to enhance practitioner wellbeing.

Self-Care as a professional mandate: We and Us, advocacy and agency

  • Creating Wellbeing at the We and US levels
  • The evidence about organisational impacts on wellbeing,
  • The importance of leadership,

This AASW NSW Connect:ED webinar is part of a series helping Social Workers to connect with new ideas and reflect on their own practice. We focus on bringing everyday social workers to talk about their practice, ideas and experiences of social work. Webinars are 30 minutes (including short Q&A) and where agreed with the presenter, will be recorded for those who cannot participate in real time.

Registrations are open to everyone nationally.
