The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (the College) is happy to announce that it will be holding its virtual Educational Forum on the morning of Thursday, November 30, 2023.
In addition to a College update from Denitha Breau, Registrar and CEO, the Educational Forum will include a keynote panel discussion entitled Supporting Clients with Care and Competence Through Intimate Partner Violence. The College’s Director of Professional Practice, Christina Van Sickle, MSW, RSW, will facilitate an expert panel which will explore intimate partner violence and ways in which registrants can support their clients through competent and ethical care. Panelists will represent a variety of perspectives and practice areas, offering clinical, community-focused and system-based approaches. The panel session will also highlight key strategies for social workers and social service workers in supporting clients who have experienced or are experiencing intimate partner violence.
PARTICIPATION AND THE CCP
Registrants can use their attendance at the Educational Forum towards completing their Continuing Competence Program (CCP). The CCP ensures that social workers and social service workers are qualified, enhance their knowledge on an ongoing basis, and remain up to date in their practice throughout their careers.
