Carol Tosone, PhD, LCSW
Professor of Social Work, NYU Silver School of Social Work

The social work profession, like all helping professions, requires individuals to be conscious of how listening to the trauma of our clients can impact us both professionally and personally. The retelling of difficult memories and the focus on survival skills impacts even the most trauma-skilled professionals - being exposed to this on a regular basis can lead to burn-out and compassion fatigue. Learn how even the simplest of self-care regimes can make a huge difference in your professional and personal life, as well as the effectiveness towards your clients' interventions.
