During New Student Orientation, varied social work topics, or themes, will be presented as foundation-level mini-courses inviting students to share, explore, engage, and discover the vast world of social work. This course will emphasize experiential, active, and engaged learning components and operationalize the three SEED goals: 1) Strengthen connection and community at the School of Social Work, 2) Explore PODS (privilege, oppression, diversity, & social justice), and 3) Learn foundation-level social work skills. Each theme will begin by attending a shared welcome experience.
Only incoming MSW students enroll in this mini course.
Mini-course Description: Staying connected to body and mind while helping others is a difficult thing to do, especially for the "new" social worker.

Students will learn to: Recognize signs and symptoms of burnout; build in self-care strategies for every day practice; recognize signs of secondary and vicarious trauma and know when to reach out for help.
