Resources for Preventing Burnout

The current economic climate is reducing social service budgets and increasing stress on social workers. Tribal STAR, a program of the Academy for Professional Excellence at the San Diego State University School of Social Work, provides a number of resources for helping child welfare professionals recognize burnout and practice self-care. The resources are intended to help Tribal and non-Tribal workers recognize the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue and seek help.

With the increased attention paid to child and family well-being, Tribal STAR notes the need for workers to model well-being. In addition to a press release outlining the need for such resources, Tribal STAR's webpage includes:

  • Resources for preventing and addressing burnout
  • Resources for well-being and self-care
  • Resources for coping
