Why did you become a human service practitioner? Whether in social work or psychology, the common response is, "I wanted to support and work with people who struggled in a similar way that I did." There's nothing wrong with this motivation. However, it can be tricky to work in a community you belong to. This presentation will explore case scenarios of working in multiple service settings and will attempt to make sense of the strong reactions of the practitioner toward their clients where they have a similar history or shared community. We will consider what the practitioner needs to be aware of to take care of themselves and optimally care for the client.
