Current Challenges in Social Work Practice: Work Life Balance and Wellbeing
In this current climate, one of the real challenges in social work practice is meeting the needs of those we work with, dependents we care for at home and our own wellbeing. Research shows that social worker burnout is a real problem that not only affects practitioners, but also the quality of work that social work staff is able to offer.
The last few years have perhaps amplified how important wellbeing is to everyone in society, not only for people who need care and support but for those who provide it.
This webinar session aims to support social workers and students through using theories and research that can be applied to those they work with and themselves.
AIMS OF THE SESSIONs:
To support participants in finding a balance between meeting the needs of others and their own wellbeing;
Encourage and enable participants to practice and communicate compassionately with others and with themselves;
Support participants in applying practical theories in real-life situations;
