Social Work Innovations Conference 5th November 18

Building your resilience as a social worker 

Increasingly, social workers are asked to do a lot more with a lot less and the pressure on their emotional and psychological well-being is ever growing. Constant change, budget cuts, complex caseloads, poor working conditions, poor work/life balance and ongoing media scrutiny are significant contributory factors to these pressures. Multiple reports have confirmed the detrimental impact of these stresses on social workers’ health and personal lives; including a report from Bath University (published by BASW in 2017) and a report from Plymouth University published in 2016.


In this lively and engaging presentation, Jan Carpenter shares some simple, accessible and yet highly effective approaches, informed by neuroscience, which can help social workers alleviate stress whilst letting go of unhelpful and unresolved emotions and ensure their range of human needs to flourish are met. 


Join Jan and discover some tools that can help to build resilience and improve your health and wellbeing.
