Currently, I’m trying to put together the “Tools” section of my page together. I use these tools that have been developed or modified on other peoples’ work and that I would license under a creative Commons License (i.e. don’t sell or steal from me).
The challenge at the moment, is finding the time to do this.
Termination Self-Care Plan
SocialWorkTech: I’m a clinical social worker at a university. This means that at the end of the academic year, I terminate with all of my clients. Here are some some pointers (Which might be applicable if you are addressing them all in a group):
- Reflect on the relationship; what did it mean to you?
- What are some of the strengths or areas of growth that you saw your client achieve?
- How has your client changed since their initial meeting with you?
- Reflecting on changes already made, what work can your client do over the summer to maintain their progress?
- What’s on your client’s self care plan for the summer? Click here for details about SocialWorkTech’s self-care plan and free blank downloads.

when i do direct service this is the kind of social worker i am(via blownfromthesunintothesurf)
Be still my heart. Saul Alinsky would be proud
that’s fucking hardcore
WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS
THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION
THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT
Add to your how-to on social working
It never has.
And it never will.
Should I still apply for a job if they require experience with harm reduction and I like am familiar with the principles and am totally pro-harm reduction but I don’t really have specific experience with that? Also, the job involves supervising case managers and I have never been a professional case manager (just in volunteering) so I feel uncomfortable with that?
And I know this organization and they prefer hiring people who come from the foster system and/or have been homeless and I am neither.
idk, I am thinking it won’t hurt to apply and I can send an inquiry email about if they’d prefer someone who hasn’t been in foster care and/or homeless to not apply?…
The worse they can say is no… Apply if you think it’s a job you want and will excel at; they’ll be able to tell if this is a thing you want to do or if it’s a pay-the-job kind of bills (if they’re not desperate to fill the position). While you might be a little bit green for supervising people, they might be able to work you into another part of the organization if you’re qualified.
If you are able to, identify another model/theory that you would use with your harm-reduction model, e.g. psychoeducation, strengths-building to promote self-efficacy, to promote harm reduction.
I hope this was helpful.
