Child welfare workers in the County of Santa Barbara are tasked with ensuring the well-being and safety of the children and families they serve, often victims traumatized by the effects of abuse and neglect. In the execution of their duties to protect and serve their clients, these child welfare workers often experience occupational burnout and secondary traumatic stress (STS). This is in turn affects their ability to serve their clients effectively, placing this vulnerable population at further risk of harm. The goal of the Reflective Supervision Pilot Program (RSPP) is to provide reflective supervision to these child welfare workers to alleviate the job burnout and STS they experience, which may also lead to their intent to leave the child welfare department. There is much evidence to support the effectiveness of reflective supervision in addressing and alleviating symptoms of burnout and STS. The potential funding source for this grant is the Santa Barbara Foundation (SBF), which supports and funds community programs that enrich the lives of its residents and strengthens the fabric of the community. The actual submission and funding of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
