Presenter: Karen Goodenough, MSW, LGSW
1 CEU - may be counted as ethics or general CEU
Self-care is often considered a buzzword in social work practice - something so important and yet so hard to accomplish in our demanding work lives. In the midst of COVID-19 however, the need for self-care has taken on new meaning for both ourselves and our clients. In this brief ethics training, we'll discuss the effects of social isolation, the loss of friends, family, and "normal" life and work, and how to move forward in the midst of so much ambiguity.About the Presenter
