Is It REALLY Okay Not To Be Okay?
September 25, 2020 | 9:00 – 11:00 am
Approved for 2 Continuing Education Hours
Join The Ohio State University College of Social Work for a free webinar. Human services workers are often called upon to support others – their clients, coworkers, and communities which feels like a natural extension of their personal and professional identities. But what happens when the helpers are co-experiencing unprecedented stress in “real time” with those they help? We are told it is okay not to be okay, but do we really feel that we have permission to step back and take care of ourselves? In this interactive workshop, human services workers will identify the need for managing their own wellness, explore the “mental myths” of being a helper, and strategize ways to help their clients by helping themselves.
- Inventory their current level of personal and professional stress
- Identify the “mental myths” that create barriers to asking for help
- Develop strategies for attacking the mental myths that may be creating barriers to their own wellness and their ability to support their clients
