As social workers working on the front lines of human suffering can take its toll: burnout, discouragement, loss of engagement. These are often the same things our clients are experiencing. Together we will explore how this cycle can happen as a natural part of our neurological system, as well as ways to re-connect, reinvigorate and enrich our daily lives.

Objectives: Participants will

1. Identify mechanics of why we get stuck in blame, shame and avoidance.
2. Explore empowering and powerful resources for breaking stuck patterns using universal human values as well as techniques such as Brainspotting.
3. Consider the crucial role of our central nervous systems in our sense of well-being.

Recommended for LBSW and LMSW beginning and intermediate skill levels.
