Registration is now available online for faculty, students, and alumni interested in attending the 8th Annual Saint Leo Social Work Conference, which will be held in person and virtually on Friday, October 7.
The College of Education and Human Services Graduate and Undergraduate Social Work Departments are hosting the event as a service to those working in the field, as well as fellow social work educators, students interested parties and members of the public.
Registered social workers can earn up to five continuing education credits by participating; fees were set at a modest level. Saint Leo faculty, students, and alumni attend for free, but must still register.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Now is the Time for Social Work,” as this topic was selected by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) for its awareness campaign.
Our country’s 650,000 social workers deal with some of the toughest issues affecting individuals, families and communities: schools and interpersonal family violence, natural and man-made disasters, telehealth care , health care and mental health care, public health, the impact of social media and technology, aging, youth, rehabilitation and rehabilitation of prisoners and trauma. It is important that we not only address these problems, but above all that we identify solutions and actions to solve these hopeful problems.
Spend the day networking with others in the social work community while learning about innovation in practice, policy, and research.
