Working with youth and families in child welfare and the juvenile justice system can be stressful; it is important for us to understand how this impacts us on a personal level and be active in taking care of ourselves. Examine the importance of maintaining boundaries and self-care for youth service providers staying effective as helping professionals and maintain our personal well-being. Discuss personal issues that impact our work including emotional boundaries, the zone of involvement, client transference, and staff counter-transference.
