…An invitation for reflection and discourse from the Pan-Dorset and Wiltshire Teaching Partnership.
In March 2020, our personal and professional lives were turned upside down – or was it the other way? Over the past few months, we have adjusted and re-adjusted to professionally adopt the ever-changing government guidelines whilst juggling the emotional turmoil that lockdown brought to all of us.
Some of us have coped well, some of us have struggled greatly and most of us are probably having good and bad days.
We would like to take the opportunity to review some of the early research findings from our project to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on Social Work practice whilst considering the toll the pandemic has taken and acknowledge the need for self care.
We aim to give practitioners a voice through sharing the research findings and learn how we can manage stress and trauma in times of isolation and distance from our peers.
Louise Downes is a Lecturer Practitioner Consultant (LPC) for the Teaching Partnership and Practice Education OD officer for Wiltshire Council .
