**CEU OPPORTUNITY**
Self-Care for Advocates Virtual Conference 2021 (Link Below)
- 3 day - 15 session conference focusing on self-care at micro, mezzo, and macro levels.
- 12 CEUs approved through ASWB
- Without a doubt we are encountering virtual meeting fatigue, so in addition to having access to experts from across the nation, you will also gain access to the Advocate Virtual Mixer on May 12 and the Virtual Drag Show (Burnout is a Drag) on May 13 for no additional cost.

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/self-care-for-advocates-conference-2021-tickets-142441764151?aff=ebdssbonlinesearch

Two of JSU's BSW Graduates - Trace Fleming-Trice (Class of 2006) and Sean Creech (Class of 2006 and current faculty member) have dedicated a significant portion of their social work careers to addressing vicarious trauma, burnout, and the importance of self-care among social workers and other helping professionals. Together, with a team of advocates from across the globe, they have launched an organization named Self Care for Advocates (SCFA). What was once a post-it note idea on Trace's wall around 2013 resulting in a group that met to discuss self-care and engage in self-care activities over overpriced coffee, became more than anyone ever anticipated. First formed in 2014, Self-Care For Advocates became as a small (but plucky), volunteer-run Facebook group dedicated to promoting self-care, sharing resources, and creating a community of support among helping professionals. Now, just over 7 years later, the Self-Care For Advocates group has grown into a worldwide movement with thousands of participating helping professionals in over 63 countries around the world. SCFA is now a formal recognized organization and is finalizing their 501c3 status.

We are proud to share their amazing journey with you and invite you to attend the 2nd Annual Self-Care for Advocates Virtual Conference. The 2020 conference had over 600 global attendees and this year the speaker list is epic.
Date: May 12, 2021 - May 14, 2021

Location: Online
Admission: $25 to attend / $50 if you wish to attend and need CEUs.

JSU BSW and MSW Graduate, Kendra Homesley, hit the ground running after she graduated in 2020. She didn’t let a pandemic stop her dreams and goal of opening a safe place men battling substance abuse to find recovery and a new life. 180 Recovery House was born in January. The March tornadoes that ravaged our area tried to derail the Dream. Their home was destroyed. “Tried” is the key word. Kendra and her team mobilized and found new living arrangements for their residents. But starting over meant starting over with NOTHING. JSU Social Work is a family and yesterday we got to bless one of our own with new bedding and gift cards for the new house. Thank you to all who contributed. https://www.facebook.com/180RecoveryHouse

Update: We have received word from the family of our student injured in yesterday’s storms. They received multiple broken bones and contusions and required a chest tube. Their injuries were sustained as they shielded their elderly parent who only received bruising and minor cuts. Our student who lost their recovery house also lost a relative in another area of the county.
JSU Social Work extends its thoughts, prayers, and intentions to our neighbors and extended SW family in the aftermath of today’s tornadoes in our state. Right now we are aware of one JSU SW graduate who is in serious condition at UAB after their home took a direct hit in Ohatchee and of the loss of a facility where another two time graduate has poured their heart and soul into. Check in and let us know if you have been impacted by today’s storms.
