About the NASW-NJ Annual Conference
The NASW-NJ Annual Conference is the must-attend event of the year for New Jersey's social workers. The conference brings together hundreds of participants from across New Jersey and nationwide for 3 days of learning, laughter, and networking. With dynamic keynote speakers, cutting-edge workshops, and engaging special presentations, attendees have the opportunity to earn up to 23 Continuing Education credits during the event.
Our theme this year is: “Life in a Traumatic World: Implications for Social Work Practice.” As social workers know, trauma can take many forms, from interpersonal violence, sexual assault and medical trauma to natural disasters, institutionalized oppression, war-related trauma and the sudden loss of a family member. According to the National Council for Behavioral Health, 70% of adults have experienced a traumatic event in their lifetimes. This mean more than 223 million people are living with the effects of trauma in the U.S.
Over the three days, we will examine how trauma affects our clients and ourselves, and also learn about cutting edge modalities to treat this pervasive and challenging subject.
We hope you will join us in Atlantic City, April 14-16, however, for those unable to attend in-person, we'll also have a limited virtual conference option providing 8.5 CEUs and allowing you to livestream the conference Keynote and select Plenary sessions.
NASW members receive a significant discount off the price of Conference registration. Make sure you're a member now
