Create a positive workplace culture and improve client outcomes

Research shows that social work client outcomes are strongly linked to the health and culture of an organization and its employees. At Human Systems, our mission is to prevent burnout and turnover to achieve our vision – thriving human service organizations. In co-sponsorship with the National Association of Social Workers, Maryland Chapter, we offer services and workshops based on the latest scientific research and designed to help you create a psychologically safe environment at work.

Our workshops are facilitated by Dr. Peters, a social worker who has conducted several trainings for the University of Maryland School of Social Work, Child Welfare Academy, and the National Association of Social Workers, Maryland Chapter.
