As part of our Stand up for Social Campaign, we’ve made Community Care Inform’s Guide to developing emotional resilience by Louise Grant and Gail Kinman available for free. Download the PDF here.

A recent Community Care research study of over 1,300 social workers found almost three-quarters had high levels of emotional exhaustion.

Developing better emotional resilience is one way to cope with the complexity, the conflict and difficult situations social workers often face on a daily basis. Used effectively it can be a key protective factor against ‘burnout’ and Community Care’s free webinar will offer tools to help.

Louis Grant and Gail Kinman, experienced practitioners who have researched this area extensively, will lead the webinar.

They will discuss ideas and tips to help you build your own resilience ‘toolbox’ of strategies so that you not only survive, but ensure these experiences improve your practice.

From making the most of supervision to finding the appropriate level of empathy with service users, the webinar will offer advice that applies to both frontline staff and managers wanting to find ways to ensure the wellbeing of their teams.
