New Virtual Series coming this March!

After the success of our previous virtual series: Opiate Addiction with Dr. Joe Hunter and Social Workers and Adoption with Marie Dolfi, LCSW, we are pleased to announce the next installment in our NASW-NYS Virtual Series program –Overlooked and Underserved: Clinical and Educational Perspectives In the Treatment and Support of Twice Exceptional Children, Adolescents, and Their Families with Melissa Sornik, LCSW and Lisa Zaretsky, CSW, LMSW this March.

This three-part continuing education series will further your understanding of “twice exceptional” children, adolescents, young adults, and their families, help you to understand the interplay of educational systems, family systems, and mental health systems when working with 2e individuals, as well as comorbidity and accurate diagnosis of conditions often associated with the population. Ms. Sornik and Ms. Zarestky are foremost experts in the field, and we are excited to have been able to partner with them to share their expertise with our membership.

Each workshop will take place on a Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. EST. This entire series is available to NASW-NYS members for $30 and approved for 6.0 continuing education contact hours* for NYS social workers, as well as continuing education credit hours for licensed marriage and family therapists and licensed mental health counselors.
