Keeping a Quiet Mind in the Midst of Chaos - Strategies for Social Workers

Venue: Zoom
Date: 22nd November 2022
Time: 12:00 - 1:30pm

Presented by: Ed Sipler, Health Development Specialist, South Eastern H&SCT

 

Working with people who have experience of trauma or excessive stress in their lives can lead to an increase in social workers’ own levels of stress and vicarious trauma.

This lunchtime seminar aims to;

  • Increase participants’ understanding of how stress and trauma affect
    our nervous system
  • Explore underlying processes that support resilience and agency
  • Introduce self care strategies that help practitioners in their day to
    day work
  • Build on a communication style that is consistent with trauma
    informed work
  • Share resources practitioners can use in their day to day work

Whilst we may know what self care means; do we apply those skills and messages to ourselves?
