A well-trained and educated workforce of mental health providers can better serve the individuals who need it.
The Grace Abbott School of Social Work’s Continuing Education Program, along with STEPs (Support and Training for the Evaluation of Programs), is collaborating with former social work students, area agencies, and national organizations to provide trainings, seminars, and professional development workshops. These events also provide opportunities to network, mentor, and strengthen professional community alliances. The events are presented as in-person training on the UNO campus and on-line through webinars and recorded presentations.
With more than 18 events in 2018, it is expected that the school will have reached more than 1000 mental health professionals and students by the end of the year.
Topics offered include sexual health, behavioral health; culturally and linguistically appropriate services standards; couples therapy; immigrants and refugees; domestic violence; military social work; child welfare; older adults with mental health needs; undocumented youth in public schools; sexual diversity; qualitative research; fathers in parenting programs; adolescent sexuality; and ethics.
In the future, Grace Abbott School of Social Work and STEPs plan to continue to offer trainings and professional development workshops so that mental health professionals can improve their skills and increase their knowledge.
