The National Association of Social Workers – New York State Chapter (NASW-NYS) is committed to providing the best possible continuing education and professional development to our members. As such, we are releasing an invitation to our community of social workers to develop and present continuing education workshops in the following topic areas:

NASW-NYS also recognizes the need for advanced clinical training. We are recruiting clinical social workers with an interest in providing supervision and clinical case studies for evidence based psychotherapeutic modalities to join our faculty, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Exposure Based Therapy
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Mindfulness Stress-Based Reduction
  • Somatic Experiencing Therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing


In addition to continuing education, NASW-NYS is launching two new series in 2018: Professional Development and Self-Care. As these are not CE-granting webinars, applicants need not be social workers with 3 years post-masters work experience.

For the Professional Development and Self-Care webinars, applicants must be properly trained/experienced in the subject area. Presentation topics could include: 

  • Starting and Maintaining a Private Practice
  • Careers in MACRO social work
  • Leadership
  • Navigating Salary Negotiations 
  • Compassion Fatigue
  • Best Practices in Time Management
  • Vicarious Trauma


Social workers interested in applying must meet the New York State Education Department (NYSED) provider requirements, and applicants and workshops must meet basic social work practice considerations in developing their proposals.
