regarding the 9 Tools for your professional SW Tool Kit

I have just joined this important LinkedIn group for NASW members and saw this post from a few months back. I must say I am in total agreement with listing Code of Ethics first. It is often easy to let this slip the forefront of our minds when working in the field no matter what setting. I also noticed #8 regarding self care. This is very very important as we often take care of others in our profession prior to ourselves. I believe healthy social workers striving to maintain work/life balance is crucial to sustain a long term career of helping clients. I can place compassion fatigue on my list of past professional experiences and this is probably more common than we realize and not reported or voiced that often.Creating a better balance for ourselves can help as it has for my own career, and advocating for workplace changes is also needed to improve this opportunity for life balance. Thanks for listing these 9 tools.
