"Retiring from Clinical Social Work", a presentation by Jana Edwards, LCSW, BCD and Ron Langer, LCSW, BCD


Both Jana and Ron retired from clinical practices recently. Both were faced with how this would affect our patients and ourselves. More specifically, each dealt with such issues as:
-- Understanding what functions we served with each patient.
-- Are those functions necessary or merely desirable?
-- Related to the last question, does the patient require a referral?
-- What does our work mean to us, and what functions does it serve for us?
-- What counter-transference issues arise?
-- Facing a new stage of life and thinking about our own mortality and possibly declining physical/cognitive powers.

Ron and Jana will share their reflections with members of the society.

1) Participants will examine what functions they provide to (some of) their patients.
2) Participants will examine what functions their clinical work provide to them.
3) Participants will consider what criteria are relevant to deciding if/when to retire from clinical work.

Salon attendees receive 1.5 CEUs.
