Upcoming Events!

APOSW Pre-conference institutes: May 12, 2015, Whitefish, MT:

  • Adventure Montana: Outdoor Educational Leadership Experience
    Participants will venture outside of the typical classroom setting, embracing the beauty of Montana while focusing on the enhancement of innovational leadership skills. The program will be facilitated by Anita Graham, MSW, LCSW, of WVU Children's Hospital and Maggie Warner, BSN, RN, of Kettering Health Network and former Adventure West Virginia Leader.
  • Circles of Hope: Group Work in Pediatric Oncology Social Work Practice
    The value of group work in the pediatric oncology community is well understood by those who have had the opportunity to run effective programs. However, this process can be a threatening intervention for the practitioner who has no past experience with the modality and no mentorship regarding the process. The workshop will be facilitated by Nancy Cincotta, MSW, MPhil, Psychosocial Director at Camp Sunshine in Casco, Maine, who has extensive experience in psychosocial interventions through group work.
