Resilience

I find it interestingly sad that as social workers, you have 'bad' days and feel 'sad' that the work you do is sometimes all in vain...Imagine now if you weren't the social worker but one of your clients living the nightmare- one you can't get out of. However, as social workers you can just walk away. Your clients can't.
Fix the system that is designed to fail the weak and the poor.

I appreciate all of the helpful tips in this area. As a foster care case manager I feel like I am in the middle of an ocean with waves crashing all around me. I am never have a sense of accomplishment because so many forms are due every day. And due to my lack of experience, I feel inept instead of equipped to meet the challenges. I hope one day I will feel like I know what I am doing and that I am being productive. I see why there is such a high turnover rate in this area of practice. I hope that I am helping my clients in some small way.
