One of my professors recently suggested to buy this book: "The Compassion Fatigue Workbook," by Francoise Mathieu. It has a plethora of useful and practical information on self care, vicarious trauma, and mental health for the social worker. This definition comes from this book on page 9. ⁠ ⁠ We see a lot of aspects of life and human behavior that some cannot imagine. Our patience is tried on a constant basis, and we are often an overworked and underpaid profession. ⁠ ⁠ Social work is hard. Social work is my passion, my life's calling, but that does not mean I am immune to vicarious trauma that comes along with that. It is okay to hurt from your work, to cry at the end of hard day, and to have the empathy to really feel what your client feels. But at the end of the day, you also need to learn to let it go and leave it at work. Because you cannot fix every single person, and there will sometimes be bad endings. Do the best you can every single day, and when it's time to leave the office, really leave it all there. Be present at work, and then be fully present at home. Figure out how you best cope and manage this lifestyle, and you will continue to flourish.⁠   #socialwork     #socialworker     #trauma     #socialworklife     #socialworkstudent     #msw     #bsw     #humanservices     #socialservices     #psychology     #sociology     #counseling     #counselor     #therapy     #therapist     #career     #job     #passion     #vicarioustrauma     #secondarytrauma     #mentalhealth     #mentalhealthawareness     #selfcare     #compassionfatigue     #burnout     #socialworkersrock     #overworked     #underpaid     #lifecalling     #presence

I posted this picture yesterday, and I wasn't very happy with it or the way it looked. So here it is again. I was hardcore studying for my statistics final that I have at noon today. I feel pretty good about it. If you every get in a study slump, or a work slump, just know you're not alone. We all are juggling a million responsibilities, and I want you to know that it's okay if you drop some along the way. As long as you're okay and still functioning like a "normal" human being. ⁠ ⁠ Anyways, I hope you are all doing well, and are utilizing this beautiful Sunday for relaxation and preparing for this next FABULOUS week again.

Summer is drawing to a close and the academic year will soon be upon us with all the accompanying trepidation and excitement. This year will be particularly gratifying, as we celebrate the first graduates from the Diploma in Gerontology. We thank them for putting their faith in the program and being the trailblazers for social service practice with older adults.   #langaracollege     #ageinplace     #careerprogram     #education     #gerontology     #vancouver     #socialserviceworker     #socialservices     #aging     #britishcolumbia     #gerontologylangara     #healthyaging     #jobsearch     #careeropportunities     #seniorshealth     #activeaging     #langaraie     #thisislangara

My undergrad school stressed the importance of cultural competence, and it wasn't until recently in grad school that a professor spoke about this school of thought. Thinking about it, it is IMPOSSIBLE to understand every client's culture, and any culture that is not our own. Even if we share cultures or beliefs, differences can lie within those. It's important to remember that we will not know everything, and we need to be open and honest with our clients in order to engage them and work effectively.   #socialwork     #socialworker     #socialworkers     #socialworklife     #socialworkstudent     #msw     #bsw     #humanservices     #socialservices     #psychology     #sociology     #counseling     #counselor     #therapy     #therapist     #career     #job     #passion     #diversity     #culture     #race     #ethnicity     #heritage     #culturalawareness     #culturalhumility     #competence     #tradition     #beliefs     #openmind     #celebratediversityandequality

The juvenilization of poverty is a term that describes how children are represented as poor in a disproportionate way. What can we do to ensure children have the resources they need to flourish? As social workers, it's our job to think creatively so that equity and growth can be seen with the people we work with, especially impoverished children.
