Beyond the “Self”: Putting the Ethics of Self-Care into our Organizational Practices (part of St. Cloud Monthly Educational Meetings)
2 ethics CEUs, open to social workers of all practice areas and experiences
This webinar takes place during a special 2-hour session of the St. Cloud Monthly Educational Meeting - all are welcome.
Presenter: Dr. Karen Goodenough, PhD, MSW, LGSW
2 CEUs - may be counted as ethics CEUs
The NASW Code of Ethics now more explicitly calls on social workers to engage in self-care and support the self-care of fellow social workers as part of our standard practice. While social workers can engage in their own self-care both on and off the job, self-care in the workplace is inherently subject to the rules and parameters of the organization. How realistic, simple, or accessible is it for you to engage in self-care while working? To what extent do your organizational practices support or hinder your ability to care for yourself at work?
Come take a closer look at our ethical responsibilities as colleagues, supervisors, and workplace leaders in creating workplace cultures that take self-care “beyond the self”. Join us as we explore the building of daily self-care practices in our teams and organizations, which center organizational culture, policies, and procedures as key components in this process.
