Self-care practices in online faculty: Strategies for professional satisfaction and program retention -- #SWDE2019

Counselman Carpenter, Elisabeth A.; Cummings, Stephen; Marquart, Matthea S.

SESSION DESCRIPTION:
This presentation/discussion looked at what self-care practices online distance social work faculty engage in to manage teaching stress and academic burnout, how faculty members' perceptions of self-care connect to their in-class modeling and experience with online students, what institutional strategies are identified by online faculty members that may promote lower rates of burnout, and what (if any) role professional mentorship plays in improved self-care outcomes and role satisfaction.

SESSION DETAILS:
● Participants will learn a six-pronged model of professional self care for social workers.
● Participants will share their faculty perceptions of self-care in an online teaching environment and
discuss in-class modeling strategies and experience with online students.
● Participants will discuss what institutional strategies should be promoted for lower rates of burnout
and what if any role does professional mentorship play in improved self-care outcomes and role
satisfaction?
● Participants will have the ability to engage in a year-long practice to improve their self-care.
