SUPERVISORY LEADERS IN AGING

In conjunction with the John A. Hartford Foundation

Participants in this program will need to attend 5 full-day workshops, generally scheduled every two weeks during a two-month period.  The training series is scheduled for March 2nd, 16th, 30th, and April 6th and 20th in Tampa, FL.



NASW is excited to launch the Supervisory Leaders in Aging (SLA) program with generous funding from the John A. Hartford Foundation. SLA is designed to improve the delivery of health care and social services to older adults by strengthening the supervision of staff providing direct social services to older adults and their families.  This innovative professional development program will be implemented as a continuing education offering by NASW-FL for 30 contact hours.  

The training will be conducted on 10 topics:


  1. Advancing Skills in Individual Supervision;
  2. Advancing Skills in Group Supervision;
  3. Measuring Outcomes of Practice;
  4. Translating Research Evidence into Practice;
  5. Expanding Knowledge of Geriatric Mental Health;
  6. Heightening Awareness of Older Adult Self-Neglect and Mistreatment;
  7. Supervising Work with Families;
  8. Strengthening Leadership in Interdisciplinary Practice;
  9. Geriatric Assessment Skills;
  10. Promoting Culturally Competent Geriatric Practice


The training is delivered in 5 full-day workshops, generally scheduled every two weeks during a two-month period.  The training series is scheduled for March 2nd, 16th, 30th, and April 6th and 20th in Tampa, FL.

Applicants must be MSW's working as supervisors or managers providing supervision to staff members who provide direct social services to older adults.  Both experienced and novice supervisors are encouraged to seek advanced training through the SLA program. Workshops are led by seasoned educators and leaders in gerontological social work, and participants will engage and network with peers in the cohort during sessions, and beyond the sessions with other SLA network members from around the country. SLA graduates will also be part of a network of Supervisory Leaders in Aging around the country.

The fee to participate in the SLA program is $250 for NASW members, and $300 for non-members.  A limited number of scholarship opportunities are available. 

The application deadline has been extended to February 24, 2017, unless available slots are filled in advance of that date.
