A Professional Development Program for Social Work Supervisors of Direct Practice across the Life Course

The School of Social Work in Falk College, an approved provider of continuing education for LMSWs and LCSWs in New York State, will offer a six-day Social Work Practice Fellows (SWPF) program allowing social work supervisors to honor their real world experiences while engaging in interactive learning.  Social workers are often thrust into supervisory roles without the skills, knowledge, or support they need to succeed.  This premier 36-hour certificate program features an advanced curriculum with a focus on some of the most complex issues that challenge MSW supervisors.  Content and activities are based on supervisory best practices and delivered through three-hour synchronous trainings over the course of six months.  Interactive group learning tasks and expert instruction facilitated by local practice experts lead by Ellen Ketchum, LCSW-R.
