Excerpt: "Social workers give so much to enhance the lives of their clients. Due to the nature of the work, however, social workers are often exposed to highly emotional cases that can carry into their personal lives, leading to an unhealthy amount of stress and potential burnout. To alleviate some of this stress, employees may turn to their peers for insight and advice. The best care and support can often come from inside the workplace, as coworkers provide a familiar outlet for guidance." By Randy Kratz, LCSW, from Social Work Today.
