SWK 574 - Self Care and the Health and Human Services Professions

Self-care supports professional competence as well as the longevity and integrity of individual professionals and professions as a whole. A commitment to professional self-care and a repertoire of self-care strategies are essential to preventing and addressing consequences of helping work such as compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and secondary traumatic stress disorder. Effective self-care is supported by self-awareness; an understanding of coping and human resilience as well as the philosophical and theoretical foundations of self-care strategies; and application of self-care across practice settings and system levels.
