"The importance of self-care is not as simple as taking long, relaxing baths and getting massages. A social work student needs to learn appropriate strategies for handling the daily stressors associated with our profession, preemptively."

"A man named Schwartz once said that social work is that place “where the individual and society reach out for one another.” Think about that. That’s a big idea.

So, you’re always thinking about at least two things at the same time. How to help both the little guy and society at the same time. One has to be able to think like a juggler, or a surfer, or any master of multiple dimensions in motion."

This, and several other tips for those preparing to do, or already doing, in social work.

Interesting assertion- how do you feel? 50 Minute Periods Are Killing Teacher Creativity
'I'd love to do [fill in the blank with some creative idea or activity], but I just don't have time. My classes are only 50 minutes.' I hear this lament frequently when I lead professional development. Teachers get super excited

Educators, social workers, parents, and others interacting with school-aged children can play a tremendous role in assessing and ensuring their mental health.
An estimated 20 percent of children show signs or symptoms of a mental health problem. It's a destructive force in schools, but most educators don't have the training or resources to help.
