NACSW is deeply committed to providing on‐going continuing education for its members and friends to enable them to maintain and increase their effectiveness in service delivery, thereby ensuring the provision of quality social work services for clients, whether these clients be individuals, families, groups, organizations, or communities. Toward this end, NACSW provides a wide array of trainings sensitive to the ethical integration of faith/spirituality and social work. Check out the Goals of NACSW’s Continuing Education Programs.
NACSW sponsors a three-day annual convention each year, as well as local workshops or one-day regional conferences, and audio conference webinars. These various training events provide terrific opportunities to:
LEARN from nationally recognized speakers on topics of special interest to NACSW members and friends
NETWORK with dozens of other Christians in social work/social ministry
EARN continuing education contact hours, which have become increasingly important for maintaining social work licenses, certifications, registrations and/or accreditation in many areas.
