The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship
between self-care and academic stress in the hope that training social
work students to practice self-care will start them on the right path to
academic success and career longevity. The study surveyed 90 BASW and
MSW students using the Academic Stress Scale. Students who practiced
daily self-care had lower academic stress. In addition, with each year of
progression through the program, students experienced minimally less
academic stress. The type of self-care practiced was not a factor. Social
work programs can be encouraged to teach self-care. Self-care theory and
domains are also reviewed. More studies are needed to examine other
factors that might reduce academic stress.

Social work, by definition, is a profession dedicated to serving others. Although social workers
occupy a wide variety of positions, fields of practice, and areas of expertise, they share a common
ethical mandate to work compassionately with the most vulnerable people in communities. Often
this work comes at a heavy price for social workers and their families. While serving others—
especially clients who have experienced complex trauma and those with problems involving multiple
systems—social workers can become overworked and fatigued personally and professionally. Job
stress can include large caseloads, low pay, lack of advancement opportunities, and unclear job roles
(Thomas, Kohli, & Choi, 2014). Emotional stress on the job can include secondary trauma from
hearing about a client’s loss, abuse, poverty, family violence, medical burdens, neglect, and addiction.
Over time, secondary trauma can lead to burnout causing exhaustion, depersonalization, and
inefficacy (Maslach, Schaufeli, & Leiter, 2001). This fatigue sometimes leads social workers to change
professions or to find work that is less emotionally demanding (Oser, Biebel, Pullen, & Harp, 2013)

There are ways of decreasing the risk for burnout in the helping professions. Practices such as
coworker support, clinical supervision, and attending personal counseling sessions as needed are
noted to help decrease the risk of burnout (Oser et al., 2013). Self-care is another practice that has
some promising results for reducing the risk of burnout. The purpose of the present study was to
investigate the relationship between self-care and academic stress in the hope that training social
work students will start them on the right path to career longevity. We wanted to incorporate self-
care at the ground level with students who are learning how to practice. Our rationale was simple:
Teach students about self-care from the beginning and the likelihood that they will maintain this
practice and avoid burnout will increase. In the following sections we discuss the current literature
