    Great post! Self-care is so critical for social workers–we are often focused too much on caring for others in our lives to the point of neglecting ourselves.

    I like this post so much that I’m going to suggest to our faculty that we add your post to our Self-Care Starter Kit (http://www.socialwork.buffalo.edu/students/self-care/).

      Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for doing that, Nancy! That makes me very happy! Feel free to take the PDF and put it on your site and separately link to that post you are referencing (i.e. cite me) :) Also, the video is very useful :)

        Thanks, that’s very gracious of you! I just emailed them again to let them know that. You know, you might want to consider putting a copyright with your name and also a creative commons license on the pdf itself. People end up copying this type of thing and they can easily lose cite of the source.

  5. Ignacio – this is very creative and I love that you made it so that it works on an iPad. Is it okay for me to show it to my clients? Thanks – I have a feeling you are going to change a lot and come up with new theories to help everyone – go for it – we need new eyes and new ideas!

    This is a really great idea! I have been trying to figure out how to use more technology in my practice as a social worker. Thanks for the great tip!

    This is awesome! The agency that I am interning at does a “Mind, Body, and Soul” group and this fits right in! I just printed 20 copies for my classmates and talked to my Supervisor about it!

    Thanks for the example. I am doing an assignment for my Reflexology course and have to show some examples of self care plans. I was thinking it had to be a formal document but yours is GREAT its a friendly lay out and would be easy to use and very user friendly.Thanks again

    • Thank you. I downloaded this and will need to adapt it for my area of work and clientele but not unlike the Better Lives model we use in Probation. Richnsoul

    Hi there! I am doing a presentation on self-care for individuals with mental illness seeking employment. I was hoping to use your worksheet during my presentation. Of course, I will reference your work. Would this be ok with you? You did a great job with this.

    • Hi there!

      Thank you for the kind words and for checking out my website. Of course you can use by materials for your presentation :)

      The only thing I ask of people that want to use my materials is to not modify my files (for example to take out my logo), sell my materials, or claimant is their own.

      Again, thank you for asking and for checking out my website!

    This is excellent stuff and wonderful resources – I am hoping to use your worksheet (with your permission) for a workshop I’m doing but I will of course leave it exactly as it is – I am just delighted to have found exactly the resource I was looking for. Many thanks, Kind regards, Karen
