Supporting the Next Generation of Social Workers

Event date: 2/2/2023 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Export event

Join us to discuss how to plan, implement, and develop social work internship opportunities at your organization.

We will address basic skills and approaches for providing effective field supervision. We'll also cover best practices and lessons learned from the process of building a field internship program from the ground up, and how these lessons can translate to the future success of social work students.
