Patience, flexibility and empathy. The significance of how we professionals present ourselves to or treat our clients is paramount. Just remember...one day you might be sitting in your client's chair and you would not appreciate being admonished, criticzed or berated by your LCSW. Respect your clients. Be honest with your clients. Most of all practice ethically. Do not abuse your position. We make decisions that can forever alter the lives of our clients. We are not here to damage or destroy lives. For those who have practiced or are practicing to fulfill your wants and desires at the expense of innocent lives there is only one answer for you - leave the profession. The NASW Code of Ethics exist for a good reason.

Self advocacy, self care and valuation of your own skills. To many social workers don't push for higher self wages and take the valuable skillsets that they have and undercut themselves. It's important to know that your work is valued and that you have incredible skills to bring to the table. So dont sell yourself short and and make sure that you are compensated for the work that you do.
