OPTIMISE Your Finances

Financial overwhelm contributes to varying levels of stress and anxiety, symptoms of burnout, and even high turnover rates in the workplace. Financial wellness is a key component of self-care and wellbeing. The basic needs of social workers include developing a healthy relationship with finances and developing financial management skills. As a result, the objectives of this group include discussing student loans and their long-term impact, identifying loan forgiveness options, building skills for basic financial planning, and more. 

 

The group facilitator, Dr. Veronica Hardy, LCSW, is a Professor of Social Work, social work mentor, and author. Through productive financial management skills, Dr. Hardy is experiencing a debt-free lifestyle. As a result, part of her social work mentorship is coordinating information to support social work students and fellow social workers in enhancing their relationship with finances. Let us begin!
