About the Event

Workshop title: Getting the Most Out of Social Work Supervision and Mentoring

Monday, September 20, 2021

6 - 7:30pm EST



NASW is excited to kick off our 2021-22 student series of events with a special webinar on social work supervision and mentoring! As we start a new semester, many social work students are beginning field placements and forming relationships with their classmates, faculty, and internship staff. This webinar will provide some best practices to build strong connections and maximize supervision time throughout the semester (whether that be in-person or virtual). All social work students are invited to attend!

Please bring your questions and resources to share.
