Professional self-care is an essential social work survival
skill. We've developed a starter kit on self-care for our students
that might be of some use to other beginning social work
While the kit does not address all that goes into developing the
skill of professional self-care, it does begin the journey.
Below are links to self-care topics, and there are additional
materials within each. We recommend you start with the
Developing Your Self-Care Plans page. In any case, we hope you
will find many ideas and resources in these pages to help you
maintain and enhance your well-being in all the important domains
of your life, now and in the future. Good luck!
