​​​​​​MESSAGE FROM THE UNIT


Hello, Social Workers!  

I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer and that you're off to the beginning of a great new season. We're getting off to a great start with respect to planning our NASW upcoming season. We have our next steering committee meeting on Sunday, Sept 10 at 2 pm in WPB. We encourage anyone who has a little time and some interest in getting involved to join us at this planning meeting. I promise we won't rope you into doing more than you want. We appreciate having people share their thoughts and ideas even if you don't take on a larger role. We're an enthusiastic group of amazing social workers and we appreciate having more voices and bodies.

As a reminder, we offer 8 opportunities for 8 CE hours, 8 sponsored dinners and 8 networking events in our season that runs from Sept through May (2nd Monday in PBG, 3rd Monday in Boca) as well as a sprinkling of other events throughout that includes our annual March Social Work Awards Event! We can definitely use help planning some of these events.

Please visit 
http://www.naswfl.org/palm-beach-unit.html  to see what events  are already scheduled. Sept 11th on crossover symptoms, Sept 18th on narcissism, Oct 9th on the therapists tool box and Oct 16 on neurobiology are already filling up fast!


Also, we encouraged everyone to get to know our sponsors. If you believe they could be a good fit for any of your clients, we encourage you to send some business their way! 


So far this season our sponsors are:

  • Transformations Treatment Center - Sept. 11 Crossover Symptoms:  Medical and Mental Health
  • Transformations Treatment Center - Sept. 18 Narcissism: The Impact and Treatment Options
  • Palm Partners -  Oct. 9 Therapist Tool Box
  • Gatehouse Treatment Center - Oct. 16 Integrating Interpersonal Neurobiology into Couples Therapy
  • Gatehouse Treatment Center - Nov. 13


Hope to see everyone soon!
