What we do starts with who we are. Deciding who we are begins with deciding who we really want to be. Recently the President of the United States asked citizens, “What kind of nation are we going to be?” Political affiliations aside, as social workers and the leaders of moral resilience and courage, this is a call to action directly to us to help our society make the decision to be a nation that puts humanity first. In this training we ask social workers to engage in self inventory to answer one question; what kind of helper will I be?
