NASW North Carolina has partnered with the Center for Financial Social Work on a webinar that addresses the toll financial problems take on social workers. There’s a cost to being a social worker. It’s physical, emotional, personal, and professional as well as financial. This universal truth is not universally acknowledged in the field. With roots in helping the poor, volunteerism and church-giving, social work is most often associated with scarcity, need, and lack of resources by the public and by the profession. The perception that no one goes into social work to become wealthy has become a self-fulfilling prophecy. This belief minimizes the stress and trauma of not earning enough to cover today’s high cost of living, student loan repayment, the expenses of licensing, supervision, CEUs, etc.
