The Polyvagal Theory (PVT) provides a road map for clinicians to assist clients in becoming aware of their own nervous systems and creates opportunities for self compassion and healing. The PVT expands on our understanding of protective responses for those with trauma histories. In addition, when we understand how our own nervous systems work, we then understand the importance of creating enough cues of safety and connection when working with our clients.

Coping with Resilience Fatigue: Thriving vs. Surviving

Is ‘bouncing back” enough? During the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health is at the forefront of awareness. Often there is a focus on dependence on the innate resilience of our clients as well as the social workers guiding clients through this crisis. Repeatedly “bouncing back” is not a sustainable solution and is indeed leading to the manifestation of resilience fatigue.

Jamie Nappi, LCSW, Specialist Professor in the School of Social Work at Monmouth University joins us for this Community Conversation that focuses on ways for social workers to examine, and realistically respond to the mounting pressure and impact of the expectation of being perpetually resilient during these challenging times for both clients and social workers.

Meet Zander Kieg! Zander is an award-winning social worker: 2020 National Social Worker of the Year, 2018 California Social Worker of the Year, public speaker, educator, and author, as well as a sought-after diversity workshop facilitator and trainer (including WPATH Advanced Behavioral Health Courses), and longtime national trans community organizer. Zander will be leading a presentation on Providing Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Transgender Clinical Services at our 2022 Virtual Annual Conference.

"These days transgender visibility and its corresponding lexicon are ever-expanding and evolving, which makes providing culturally and linguistically appropriate services even more challenging. My workshop at the NASWNJ Conference will illustrate how to provide an effective, equitable, understandable, and respectful quality of care that is responsive to the needs of your transgender client."

We stand with our Texas Chapter in affirming Trans rights are Human rights.

NASW-NJ has a long history of supporting and protecting trans rights in New Jersey. We are fortunate to live in a progressive state where the vast majority of our elected officials support trans rights. NASW-NJ will continue to stand for trans rights in New Jersey and ensure that all people are treated with the same human dignity and respect.

From @naswtexaschapter: We would like to remind all social workers that this is a non-binding opinion and does not change any reporting requirements. Social Workers still ahve discretion in reporting abuse, and as an Opinion, this issuance from the AG carries no legal weight. NASW-TX has opposed, and will continue to oppose, any efforts to redefine child abuseto include gender affirming care. Full statement from NASW-TX here: https://bit.ly/3v8ciwB

While NJ practitioners still sit on sidelines because they are waiting for NJ DCA to process applications AND licensed NJ telehealth practitioners (due to Covid) IN state are being hit with a new $1,500 fee, the state has seen fit to provide ongoing and NEW access to NJ clients to out of state practitioners! This makes me SO mad. NASW-NJ what are your thoughts on this?
Good morning. I’m looking for NYC psychotherapists in private practice to participate in a research study for my dissertation. It’s an anonymous online survey and it’s very brief. Please consider completing it if you have a few minutes. Thanks for your help!
We’re honored to receive the endorsement of the NASW-NJ. Social workers across our district and across our state do extraordinary work every single day, and we are proud to advocate for them in the halls of the State Legislature.
