Free CEU for Social Workers- Work-Related Stress

Work-Related Stress– Work-related stress can be defined as an individual’s emotional and physical response to the demands of a job that is incongruent with his or her needs, abilities or resources. Given social work’s client-centered nature, it is not surprising that social workers experience tremendous work-related stress — particularly among those providing direct services in health or mental health sectors. Aside from simply understanding the causes of work-related stress and the deleterious impact of distress, secondary traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, vicarious traumatization and burnout, it is imperative that social workers plan and practice self-care to minimize the effects of stress.
Identify work-related stressors and challenges experienced in social work.
Apply useful concepts to aid in understanding stress-related experience, including compassion fatigue, secondary traumatic stress, burnout and vicarious traumatization.
