OASW is thrilled to be offering a brand new online certificate course on Essential Skills for Social Work with Groups: Theory, Leadership, and Evidence-Based Practice.
Group work is gaining popularity and growing in demand across social service sectors as it can be used with a range of groups.
As society changes rapidly, so do the challenges for social work. Group work practice is an effective way of growing inclusivity and fostering transformative connectivity with clients in social work. Social group work, in particular, seeks to generate safe spaces, belonging, and opportunities for positive collective experiences that have the power to enable change in a way that individual experiences sometimes cannot. Designed to expand existing social work knowledge and refine group work skills, OASW is proud to present the online certificate: Essential Skills for Social Work with Groups: Theory, Leadership, and Evidence-Based Practice. Program includes 3 four-hour modules on engaging topics:
October 14 - 27, 2019
