Social Work Continuing Education Courses
Options for Ongoing Learning
At the Graduate School of Social Work, learning doesn’t stop at graduation. We provide a wide range of continuing education (CE) offerings for alumni and the wider community. You can enhance your professional skills and resources in the following concentration areas:
- Health and mental health
- Social innovation
- Program development and evaluation
- Diversity, inclusion and social justice
Our social work CE programs — several workshops per quarter — draw on faculty, alumni and community expertise in areas such as policy and direct practice. We also cover topics that impact the communities we work with every day — topics such as Islamophobia and environmental justice. A recent integrative health workshop introduced participants to different health care approaches and identified how health practitioners can innovate in providing client-centered care.

As painful and frightening as it will likely be, it is essential for parents, children, supporters, and caregivers to be ready to discuss what matters most. Learn best practices for starting and continuing this challenging conversation and gather resources for end of life planning.

I am continually impressed with how well GSSW keeps current in offering cutting-edge instruction and experiences in response to the needs of the local and global communities, as well as the needs of society as a whole. This is vital so social workers are prepared and can make a difference in the lives of the people we serve through the strong foundation of knowledge, skills and experience that GSSW offers.
