Challenges experienced by Social Workers as Grief Leaders: What Social Workers Can Learn from the Life and Service of Captain America
There are five workshops being offered in this Superhero Grief Series. You may choose to take 1, 2, 3, 4 or all 5 workshops in the series. You must register separately for each workshop. Each workshop provides 1.5 Category I Contact Hours.
Other workshops in the series include:
Brief summary of the life and service of Captain America:
Focus on the experience with grief and traumatic loss and Captain America’s leadership among peers and community
Highlight principles and practices of grief leadership related to social work practice
Note the importance of “self-care” – including Captain America’s failures in self-care and the consequences.
Bring this self-care message back to social work practice and the recent changes in the NASW code of ethics making self-care a life-long ethical responsibility.
Highlight self-care in the context of a profession that regularly confronts clients’ grief & trauma exposures – resulting in vulnerability to secondary traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and shared trauma.
Define self-care as a life-long habit rather than just “fitness or relaxation” activities.
