@LizCrowe2, Social Worker, Well Being Counsellor, and smaccGOLD Superstar. Politically correct? Not so much.
I missed this talk at smaccGOLD – for my sins. But I could hear the audience reaction through the walls. Now I know why.
Liz Crowe explores society’s expectations of those of us who deal with the unimaginable and how we cope with it. Swearing and humour go a long way.
This talk will bring a smile to your face, blow you away and make you want to spend more time hanging out with your department’s social workers.
Oh, a word of warning, this talk does include swear words.
