Termination Self-Care Plan

SocialWorkTech: I’m a clinical social worker at a university. This means that at the end of the academic year, I terminate with all of my clients. Here are some some pointers (Which might be applicable if you are addressing them all in a group):

  • Reflect on the relationship; what did it mean to you?
  • What are some of the strengths or areas of growth that you saw your client achieve?
  • How has your client changed since their initial meeting with you?
  • Reflecting on changes already made, what work can your client do over the summer to maintain their progress?
  • What’s on your client’s self care plan for the summer?  Click here for details about SocialWorkTech’s self-care plan and free blank downloads.

Hey, I need your help! Based on the numerous requests that I get about free trauma trainings, I’m thinking of creating a FREE online course on trauma that anyone can take.  It will use the latest research and information to teach you about trauma in your own lives or get a sense of how to support others, or even notice things that others may miss in classmates and coworkers. 
But I need to get a sense of interest, especially since I’m talking with an established expert in the trauma field to collaborate on this and I want to demonstrate that there is substantial interest.  So REBLOG if you’d want to take this free course to be a certified TIP (which would mean nothing officially but something practically).  Also, you can send me an ‘ask’ with suggestions for topics if you think you have one that might be missed -traumatherapist

Yesss!!!  It is incredibly important to be trauma-informed.  Please reblog if would be interested in taking advantage of this training.

Candy Self-Expression Activity: This is a simple and fun activity great for early stages of a group when you’re focusing on rapport building and group cohesion. It is also highly adaptable to specific treatment goals and modalities.
  • Write out a coded list that assigns a question or task to each color. Click here for examples of lists for feelings and anger related questions.  A “get to know you” example is pictured above (source)
  • Give each group member a handful or funsize packet of candy or fruit snacks.
  • Read the instructions for a color and let each group member respond according to how many candies of that color they have. Group members can eat the candy as they go along. 
  • Processing Questions: What did you learn?; How are you similar to other members?; How are you different?; Did anything surprise you?; etc.
  • Another Use for colored candy: Feelings tic-tac-toe

I learned this skill in DBT and I made a worksheet to share it with you. Of course, one does not have to fill out a worksheet to weigh the pros and cons of acting on a behavior but it can be helpful to consider the pros and cons of both acting and not acting on an impulse.

DBT Pros and Cons Chart template and an example of how to use it.
