The Graduate & Undergraduate Departments of Social Work Present the Sixth Annual Social Work Conference:
"Strengthening Generations of Families and Communities"
The Conference Will be Held Virtually Friday, October 2, 2020 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Our nation’s 650,000 social workers deal with some of the most difficult issues impacting individuals, families and communities: schools and interpersonal family violence, natural and human made disasters, telehealth care, health care and mental health care, public health, impact of social media and technology, aging, youth, reentry and reintegration for prisoners, and trauma. It is important that we not only address these issues but more importantly identify solutions and actions to address these problems that lead to hope.
