Stress Is Stressful: How Working in a Hospital Can Skew Our Norms (Chicago)

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 2:00pm
This event lasts 0 days 2 hours and 0 minutes.


Social work can be taxing. When we add a hospital setting into the mix, typical workplace norms can begin to add to this without us even knowing. For example, patient demise, while always leaving an impression, can become routine. It’s important to remain mindful and practice self-care.
