Ethics of Self-Care in the Midst of COVID-19


Presenter: Karen Goodenough, MSW, LGSW


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.

This webinar may be counted as ethics CEU.


This webinar will take place via Go To Webinar - check your system in advance.
