In an effort to support others and also keep track of so much information at this time, I made a list of resources for those in helping professions. This is partially a list of lists, but not totally. I embedded links in the bolded titles.
Just a friendly reminder: Have you told yourself or someone else, “you are good at your job”? I like to tell my MSW friends “you are a good social worker!”
Resources for Parents (Talking to Kids about the Virus)
- Mindheart’s COVIBook (mindheart.co). Mindheart has a comic to help talk to children about the virus. I love this one because it has many different language versions.
- English/Spanish Book about germs and washing hands (Children’s Hospital LA). Although not specific to the virus, this book is a cute way to teach kids to wash their hands!
- How to Talk to Your Kids About Coronavirus (PBS). Created by PBS, here is an article for parents about how to take to children about the virus.
- How to Talk to Kids About Coronavirus (Children’s Hospital LA). Just to give you all different options, here is another article on how people can speak children about the virus.
- How to talk to children about the coronavirus (Harvard Medical School). Although not as colorful as the rest, this link contains another resource to help parents process how to talk to their kids about the virus.
- COVID-19 Parenting Tips (Triple P). Available in English and Spanish, Triple P compiled 10 parenting tips for parents during the pandemic.
- NASW Coronavirus Resource Page (socialworkers.org). So helpful! The NASW created a page for the Coronavirus with links to helpful information about self-care, telehealth, ethical considerations, and webinars.
- Self-Care During the Coronavirus Pandemic (NASW). You would get to this page if you click on self care from the NASW Coronavirus resource page, but this page has suggested podcasts and other free self-care resources
- State Chapters (no link here). As you will see below, the NASW California chapter has a resource list. From what I can see, others do too! Check your state’s chapter for a list.
- One Degree (1degree.org). One Degree made a resource list for clients in San Francisco Bay and Los Angeles Areas.
- NASW California Chapter. I believe other states have their own NASW page with resources listed. Here is the one for California.
Please let me know if you have other resources and what kind of articles you’d like to see in the future!
