The Standards of Practice - A Tool Navigating Challenging Areas of Practice

Social workers encounter a wide range of situations in the course of their day to day practice.  The very nature of social work gives rise to some difficult conversations.  Whether these situations involve impaired co-workers, clients who are homicidal or suicidal, conflict in the workplace or conflict of interest, this workshop is designed to prepare you for a myriad of ethical dilemmas and difficult situations.  

Workshop Time: 5:00 - 8:00 PM
