​​​​​​​​SPACE COAST UNIT


​(Updated 12/6/18)

Follow us on Facebook NASW-FL Space Coast Unit for updates!


The Space Coast Unit’s networking event last month provided a fun opportunity to meet new people and interact with other professionals in the community. Pam Dirschka, who ran for FL House of Representatives District 50, attended the networking event. Thanks to all who came out and we look forward to seeing you at future events.

Thank you to Tiffanie Trudeau, LMHC, for her presentation titled “Therapy is Like a Box of Chocolates: Using Metaphors in Clinical Settings”, and to Grand Villa of Melbourne for hosting this event. The Grand Villa provided a great lunch.  An extra thanks goes out to The Grand Villa for agreeing to host four breakfast events from January through May 2019.  Our next CEU event will be held during a breakfast event at same location on January 18th.

The Space Coast Unit's holiday gathering on December 13th is Cancelled.

There is still time to submit your
nominations for the Social Work Awards! Take this opportunity to recognize and celebrate our remarkable social workers and members of our community. Get them in before the deadline on December 15th.  Thank you to all who have already submitted nominations.

The Space Coast Unit’s Legislative/Pace Chair, Oscar Rivera, is organizing a committee to meet regularly with local legislators and future candidates to discuss issues and familiarize them with Space Coast social workers.
