May 2012 – Retired Social Worker SIG Update

Cynthianna Hahn, RSW SIG Chair

About 20 people attended the Retired Social Worker SIG CEU event on Friday, April 20, 2012. Nina Raskin, LCSW, who is a bereavement counselor, spoke on the topic of Aging in Tandem: Understanding Ourselves as We Help Clients Deal with Issues of Aging and Loss. Carol Goldbaum, Betty Dayron, and Bill Dolnick served as respondents, bringing their own perspectives on the topic. Audience members participated in a thought-provoking discussion, which touched on topics such as one’s emotional legacy, how much of one’s own experiences should be shared with clients, and the value of encouraging clients to recall their life stories.

The next meeting of the Retired Social Worker SIG will be held on Friday, May 11, 2012, from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the NASW Illinois Chapter office at 404 South Wells, 4th Floor. We will spend part of our time talking about major events in our lifetimes and how they have affected our views of the world. We will also begin to plan our next few meetings. We welcome both retired social workers and those who are thinking about retirement.
