ACSSW National Virtual School Social Work Institute

Register now for two days of interactive presentations and engaging speakers at the next annual--and virtual!--ACSSW National School Social Work Institute, February 1-2, 2021.  PLUS, register for an optional February 3rd professional training on suicide risk and assessment.

As we all explore the new world of virtual professional development, school social workers will learn nationwide best practices while we discuss how to build resilience in students through trauma-informed practices. There will be a two-day virtual institute during which participants can earn up to 12 CEUs (free!).  Choose from multiple options per session.  Additionally, a one-day, post-institute training opportunity will be available.  It addresses California state requirements regarding suicide, offering an additional 6 CEUs, and is beneficial to all who work in schools. 

Join us for two days of interactive presentations and engaging speakers. Workshop themes include:
  1. ACES in action/how it is currently being applied in our field, tools that relate to ACES, developments in this field of study; 
  2. Trauma-informed best practices which can be utilized in the school setting; 
  3. Self-care and role sustainability.
