Elaine Hammond

Burnout and compassion fatigue are significant concerns in professional social work. Either can leave social workers feeling angry, overwhelmed, drained, and/or powerless. This can lead to disengagement from client systems as well as the work. To be effective and professional and develop in their work, social workers must learn the skills necessary to take care of themselves. In this podcast, Elaine Hammond uses a trauma-informed perspective to provide a paradigm for the creation of an individualized self-care strategy.
