The Emerald Coast Unit of NASW held their regular monthly lunch meeting April 14th at Emerald Coast Hospice.  Matthew Standish (USAF retired) outreach worker discussed many interesting aspects of the Bay County Vet Center and its excellent services to veterans, family members and active duty members. The Unit’s final monthly lunch meeting before a summer hiatus is May 12th from 11:30am – 1:00 pm at Emerald Coast Hospice.

Emerald Coast Unit is happy to provide a summer educational offering of interest to therapists and school social workers.  Please join us for a morning of useful, creative techniques.

Emerald Coast Unit will host a June 16 continuing education workshop from 9:00 am – noon at FSU Panama City. The presenter is Mike Carns, Ph.D. in Counseling, whose extensive career has been in the area of experiential interventions, specifically sand tray work with adults, children, and family systems.  Dr. Carns currently teaches at Troy University in Panama City and volunteers at Bethel Village after many years in Texas.  We are pleased to offer this “hands in the sand” three-hour workshop free to NASW members and students, only $20.00 for nonmembers. Registration is available online and at the door the day of the workshop. Registration begins at 8:30 am on Friday, June 16.

Tentatively Dr. Carns’ presentation will be in Room #108 of the Holley Building; subject to change after the beginning of the summer session. (Updated April 2017)
