Need more ideas for New Year's resolutions? Here a bunch of social worker-specific ones. 

  1. Enhance Self-Care: Social workers often prioritize the well-being of others, neglecting their own self-care. Make a resolution to prioritize self-care activities such as exercise, meditation, hobbies, and spending quality time with loved ones. Taking care of your own physical, emotional, and mental health is crucial for maintaining a sustainable and effective practice.

  2. Strengthen Professional Skills: Commit to enhancing your professional skills and knowledge. This can include attending relevant workshops, conferences, or training programs to stay updated with the latest research, interventions, and practices in your field. Consider joining professional organizations or networks that provide opportunities for networking, collaboration, and continuing education.

  3. Cultivate Cultural Competence: Social workers work with diverse populations, so it's important to continuously improve cultural competence. Resolve to deepen your understanding of different cultures, communities, and identities to provide more effective and culturally sensitive support. This can involve reading books, attending cultural events, or seeking out opportunities to engage with individuals from diverse backgrounds.

  4. Advocate for Change: Social workers play a vital role in advocating for social justice and systemic change. Make a resolution to actively engage in advocacy efforts related to the social issues you are passionate about. This can involve participating in community events, contacting elected officials, or joining advocacy campaigns to promote policies that address inequality, discrimination, and social injustices.

  5. Foster Professional Support: Social work can be emotionally challenging, so it's important to have a strong support system. Resolve to build and nurture relationships with colleagues, supervisors, and mentors who can provide guidance, support, and professional development opportunities. Consider joining supervision groups or seeking regular supervision to process difficult cases and gain insights from experienced professionals.

  6. Engage in Reflective Practice: Reflection is a powerful tool for growth and improvement. Make a resolution to engage in regular reflective practice to evaluate your professional experiences, identify areas for improvement, and celebrate successes. This can involve journaling, engaging in peer supervision, or seeking regular supervision from a qualified professional.

But, really, the exam comes first! Wishing you a great year.
