As we travel through our journey in life, we are thrown many curve balls. Some of those curve balls are pleasant and sweet surprises, while some bring us heartache and grief, and some bring us both. Often, we are so busy, we don’t even realize that we are grieving a loss – a loss of what we thought life would be, a job loss, a loss of a relationship, a loved one, an empty nest  – until we are encountering other obstacles that we can’t resolve. In our fall retreat, we will focus on how we move with intention through these transitions

The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) declared that self-care of the professional is vital for competent and ethical direct care practices. Many social workers and other direct care professionals feel the depressed and stressful effects of emerging from the pandemic on ourselves and participants.
