Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
Martin Seager, Jill Anderson and I were panel members in this recent debate held by the TCSW I think this was a mega important and extremely useful discussion, this came about because I recently instigated the setting up of a community of interest on the TCSW website on Looking After Ourselves. See also links to related work regarding research into stress in Mental Health Social Work with interesting and deeply concerning findings.
Please note intro below from the College to this issue.
"Social work is an extremely rewarding and challenging profession, and there is no question that social workers have to deal with some very complex and stressful cases. So in addition to supporting the wellbeing and personal resilience of people who use services, how should social workers make sure that they are looking after themselves? This was the subject of our special festive debate, and an expert panel from across the health and social care sector joined us to discuss the issue and suggest ways in which both individual practitioners and employing organisations can ensure that the wellbeing of social workers is being considered and supported."https://www.tcsw.org.uk/standard-2col-rhm-blog.aspx?id=8589946893
