Mindy Eaves, the founding Ombudsman for Jefferson County Public Schools, is one of three authors of The A-to-Z Self-Care Handbook for Social Workers and Other Helping Professionals. As Eaves explained at an IOA conference session last April, self-care is critical for Ombuds, an imperative for the ethical practice of social work, and other helping professions. The book outlines strategies to help build a self-care plan with specific goals and strategies.
The book is now available from the publisher. (White Hat Commuications; New Social Worker Magazine.)
