Please keep in mind: School Social Workers want to leave energized with new strategies, skill sets, evidence based programs and assessment/outcome data tools that they can implement and utilize when they return to their schools. If you are presenting research findings or products, be sure to also include a significant amount of time to cover implications for school social work practice, intervention strategies and/or materials that can actually be utilized in School Social Work practice. Workshop feedback indicates that sometimes too much time is spent on "admiring the problem" or the research methodology. School Social Workers want to leave knowing what to do.
