Description

Self-care and Cultural Humility: Expanding the Practice of Social Work Leaders

This presentation is geared toward current and aspiring social work leaders. Racism, discrimination and oppressive systems influence the mental and physical well-being of helping professionals. Burnout, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious trauma and racialized trauma negatively impact social workers and the sustainability of the social work workforce. To this end, increasingly social workers are leaving the field. Well documented in the literature, self-care has the potential to assuage the negative on sequences of workplace stressors and discriminatory experiences. This presentation will identify signs of burnout, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue. Self-care has long been conceptualized from the dominant culture. This presentation will put forth a culturally competent conceptualization of self-care, identify common barriers to self-care, and assist in understanding how trauma, cultural competence, and cultural humility impact the self-care practices of social workers. This presentation will provide social work leaders with tools to develop culturally competent and responsive self-care programs for their staff.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To identify signs of burnout, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue
