As March dawns, we enter the month of Social Work Appreciation! This year the NASW theme for the month is Elevate Social Work. The idea behind the month is simple, to elevate the profession, each other, and ourselves. Creating positive and professional depictions of social work in our communities and media is crucial and often an additional task we take on above and beyond our normal tasks. However, this month I want to create space to elevate each other.
Social Worker’s Companion Blog will again be sending out certificates of appreciation to Social Workers all through out the month of March. If you would like one emailed to a Social Worker you think deserves to be elevated, just send me their first name and email here. Don’t be afraid to request one for yourself too!
Last year, I did one for all the staff I supervise at my agency. This blog also sent out over 50 certificates to Social Workers across the US, UK, India, and Canada. If you are a supervisor and want to make a batch for your staff, just email me and I will send you the fillable version of the certificate.
So if there is a Social Worker who has inspired you, just send me a line and they will get the certificate below personalized and emailed with a note saying that someone recognized them as an inspirational social worker.
So let me know who inspires you- happy March all!
