during my first two internships, i kept a daily journal so as to “leave things at the door” after the day was done. all of my peers were encouraged to do so as well. during that time, i didn’t realize how powerful it was to journal my progress and development. journaling is a great tool to use during internship, both as a creative outlet and as a way for you to deconstruct and reconstruct and make the best of field. the questions were pretty simple, but writing about it day after day really helped me. i hope it helps you too.

1. what did you do today?

2. what went well?

3. what didn’t go well?

4. what can you do differently next time?

if you have other journaling tips specific to field, please add them on here!

congratulations to all the new and ready to go BSW, MSW, and doctoral candidates —- you all worked it to get into your programs by maintaining high enough GPAs, filling out applications, writing a story about yourself, your goals, and how you social work and with who. now you are getting ready for orientation before the fall term (or maybe you did it in the summer? because you’re advanced standing msw candidate?)

go forth, stay critical, have a self care / community care plan in place, and create strong bonds and build community with your cohort and professors, and campus community as best as you possibly can.

Nope!
Brain studies find that concern for justice and equality is linked to logic, not emotion.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
A new study finds that people with high “justice sensitivity” are using logic, not emotions.  Subjects were put in a fMRI machine, one that measures ongoing brain activity and shown videos of people acting kindly or cruelly toward a homeless person.
Some respondents reacted more strongly than others — hence the high versus low justice sensitivity — and an analysis of the high sensitivity individuals’ brain activity showed that they were processing the images in the parts of the brain where logic and rationality live.   “Individuals who are sensitive to justice and fairness do not seem to be emotionally driven,” explained one of the scientists, “Rather, they are cognitively driven.”
Activists aren’t angry, they reasonably object to unjust circumstances that they understand all too well.
