Micsky shares social work expertise in multiple platforms


August 31, 2021

Tami Micsky, a Slippery Rock University assistant professor of public health and social work, shared her expertise related to coping, self-care and social work education by conducting presentations and workshops, creating courses and authoring two journal articles.

Micsky presented on the topic loss and grief intervention at the National Invited Web Conference for GoodTherapy.org earlier this summer, after hosting an online workshop for the Teaching Professor Conference about self-care for faculty to manage burnout, compassion fatigue and secondary trauma. Micsky has also worked with Continued.com, an online continuing education provider, to create three courses in social work about coping with grief and using photovoice in social work education and practice. Photovoice is a research method where participants take photographs to communicate issues of concern and effect social change.

Micsky’s recently published work in peer-reviewed journals include articles titled “Termination of the Social Work Process: Field Education and COVID-19,” in the Journal of Social Work Education, and as co-author of “Practicing Self-Care: Integrating a Photovoice Self-Care Assignment into a Social Work Course,” in the Journal of Baccalaureate Social Work.
