Cultivating Professional Resilience in Direct Practice: A Guide for Human Service Professionals with Dr. Jason M. Newell
This webinar is hosted by the Community Technical Assistance Center (CTAC) and later the Managed Care Technical Assistant Center (MCTAC)
The cumulative effects of chronic work-related stress pervasively affects the well-being of our human service work force. This can be particularly challenging for those providing services to clients who are experiencing trauma and other forms of human suffering.
Trauma-related care includes a natural risk for providers to experience their own indirect trauma reactions, compassion fatigue, or ultimately professional burnout. As a preventative measure, the ongoing commitment to self-care strategies and resources is essential in maintaining a healthy and resilient professional quality of life. This interactive workshop provides a holistic approach to cultivating professional resilience through the ongoing practice of self-care.
Focusing on three major content areas, stress, empathy and resilience, a model for self-care utilizing an ecological systems framework with activities across the biological, interpersonal, organizational, familial, peer-related, spiritual, and recreational aspects of the bio-psycho-social self is proposed.
Within this model, emphasis will be placed on the role of compassion satisfaction and vicarious resilience as key components to fostering meaningful and rewarding careers for social workers.
