The Office of Global and Lifelong Learning presents conferences, seminars, and trainings that explore a wide variety of contemporary issues.
Conferences and Events
Our programs have recently focused on trauma, attachment theory, children and families, spirituality and social work, behavioral health, new policy directives, severe mental health, loss and bereavement, substance use, leadership, diversity, and social work on a global scale. Our offerings are founded on evidence-based practice, with strong focus on the most current research and policy.
Specialists in the field provide topical understanding, skill building, and resources access while presentations by consumers enrich programs with narratives of personal experiences, and challenges and accomplishments achieved. Treatment teams and interagency collaboration are emphasized. Breakout sessions provide the audience with an opportunity to gain more depth of knowledge and skills while networking with other professionals in the field. All of our conferences highlight the current research and expertise of faculty. Conferences and events are designed for social workers, behavioral health specialists, as well as related professionals.
