"A New Kind of Safety Plan" "Social Work Tech"

A New Kind of Safety Plan

As a clinical social worker, I often worry about my clients. Besides working with a higher-risk population that have had hospitalizions in the past year, I’m a human being and I care about my clients. I especially have a soft spot for people suffering with hopelessness, feelings of worthlessness, and depression. It’s a hell I’m familiar with.

My Self Care Plan (en Español)!

My Self-Care Plan is a very popular download on my Social Work Tech Tools section of my site. I translated it to the type of Spanish I use with my clients, out of necessity and per special request.

You can download it on Social Work Tech Tools.

This handout makes a great addition to your digital Social Work Tool Box!

El Ciclo de Cambio: The Stages of Change (Prochaska & DiClemente), translated to Spanish

I had a request to translate The Cycle of Change I previously made, to Spanish. It should be noted that I wrote this for me to use with my clients and the dialect of Spanish that we use when we communicate. You can also download it on Social Work Tech Tools.

This handout makes a great addition to your digital Social Work Tool Box (also known as the Social Work Tool Kit). I also wrote a non-scholarly narrative about this important transtheoretical model.

Superimposed is the logo for the Galactic Empire in juxtaposition to the logo for the Rebel Alliance. A banner, which has the "Social Work Tech" logo on the side, reads: "A Proportional Response"

A Proportional Response

The Presidential Election horrified the ever-living hell out of everyone I know. I wrote the following reflection as a personal note to my social work colleagues and I have modified it and posted it because it may do some good. For social workers that identify as progressive, LGBTQ, Muslim, Immigrant, Feminist, non-White, disabled, pro-choice, and/or…

First Impressions, Revisions, and Additions to the Technology Standards in Social Work Practice

I’m good at technology and I love it. It enhances my social work practice and personal life. I recently took time to download and look over a draft proposal of Technology Standards in Social Work Practice [“The Standards” or “Technology Standards”]. Found it. Bound it. Gonna share some #swtech knowledge and hope that my #SocialWork…

Back to School 2015 with Social Work Tech

Periscope Broadcast Welcome to Fall… the end of summer, warm weather, and loafing. However, it also indicates a new beginning… of classes, cold weather, and pumpkin EVERYTHING (bread, coffee, candles, and beer). The fall is a great time for goal setting, starting anew, and for refocusing our energies to get us to the finish line…
