PUT ON YOUR OXYGEN MASK FIRST: PRIORITISING SELF-CARE

“Burnout”, “Stress”, “Overload”

Social Workers work in complex environments, with vulnerable clients, in a pressurised sector.

In our networking meetings Refocusing on Social Work Wellness the WA Branch will host a three-part knowledge and networking series to revisit a conversation on Social Work wellness.

Members and Non-Members are encouraged to join us for three discussions:

  • Empathic Stress Fatigue/ Vicarious Trauma - Naming the issue (Presenters and Facilitators - Michael Berry, Jason Ellis, Michelle Blogna, Katherine Parker)
  • Wellness framework/resilience - Suggested models (Presenters and Facilitators - TBA and Michael Berry, Jason Ellis, Michelle Blogna, Katherine Parker)
  • “Putting it into practice” - Establishing support for Social Work Wellness (Presenters and Facilitators - Michael Berry, Jason Ellis, Michelle Blogna, Katherine Parker)

Each session will explore some of the challenges interspersed with breakout/networking groups.

It is time to focus on yourself.
