Some people thrive on learning and seek it with a passion. For many of us, it can feel overwhelming- one more thing on our “to do” list. And it sometimes requires an investment of time and money.
Human service continuing education is what we offer human service professionals because:
- Learning and professional growth provides better service to clients and communities
- Learning reduces stress and enhances your self-care because you have improved skills and knowledge to address new and/or complex situations and client needs
- Professional development and learning is part of the NASW Code of Ethics and a similar component in many other professions
- Learning can help advance your career and maintain your value to your employer
- Applicable continuing education hours are available for license registration renewal
Use of social media and technology such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, blogs, apps, e-newsletters, and others can help you stay current in your field.
