GLADNEY UNIVERSITY: The purpose of Gladney University is to equip clients and professionals with the knowledge they need to help provide positive and healthy outcomes for the children we serve. Gladney University provides adoptive parents with education and support before, during and after their adoption. This education and support helps Gladney provide the finest adoption experience possible, and its part of Gladney’s promise of family for life. Additionally, Gladney University provides medical professionals, counselors, social service advocates and community members with cutting edge continuing education programs by offering relevant and engaging, web-based and in person educational adoption and child welfare resources. Gladney is uniquely positioned to provide outstanding training to parents and professionals because of our 130-year history of serving families and children. Our staff is highly qualified, experienced and compassionate. This combination creates dynamic and very successful training programs.


Self-care is a concept that is often encouraged, but never really practiced by many in the social work field. During this presentation, participants will be re-introduced to signs of ‘burnout’, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and secondary traumatic stress. Participants will also have an opportunity to dialogue with their fellow colleagues on how they utilize self-care, in addition to being provided with interactive activities and ideas they can take back to their home agency.
