Now that you have earned your MSW, what is your next step? Social Workers have many paths and options available.
WSSCSW is offering a mentorship group to support new social workers in developing their professional identities as they navigate life as a MSW. These groups will give new professionals a forum facilitated by a seasoned social worker to explore what it means to enter this profession after graduate school. This is not a therapy or supervision group. The groups are open to those who have earned their MSW within the last 5 years.
About the Facilitator
Emily Fell, LICSW, I work with teens and adults with a focus on gender, identity and self esteem. I use psychoanalytic, attachment and feminist frameworks to gain a deep understanding of people while considering power/privilege and the impact of systems on individuals. My background in community mental health, crisis management and inpatient psychiatry guide my current practice.
My hope for the mentoring group is to facilitate a space where social workers can connect around both practical and complex issues in clinical practice. Each group meeting will include a mindfulness exercise and discussion of topics selected by group members. Topics might include clinician self care and professional development, managing challenging client interactions, navigating organizational/structural dynamics in the workplace.
