ACE Foundation Programs
The convergence of various social, political, and public health-related factors has shifted the landscape for supporting LMSW candidates as they prepare to enter the field. Expectations and experiences for these workers are strikingly different from the pre-COVID era. This workshop will examine recent trends in the post-pandemic world of social work. Observations of the impact of the pandemic on the social work world will be examined as implications for best practices in social work supervision will be explored. This workshop is intended for the social work manager, supervisor, field instructor or any worker who supports a social worker professionally.
Participants will be challenged to consider how they will engage and best support social workers in this new landscape. This workshop will examine trends around shifting perspectives regarding workload, professional boundaries and the current work environments. Topics to be covered include trends of the worker in realms of mental health, boundaries in light of digital advancements and topics of gender and identity in the workplace. This will be a collaborative space to re-imagine ways to support emerging social workers and will include both lecture and break out group discussions.
