Happy Social Work Month!
“Elevate Social Work”
Social Work Month is celebrated in March. It's a time to recognize our work as leaders in making society a better place.
Our kick-off celebration will be held just before the Town Hall meeting on Monday, March 11th at 12 noon.
Social workers are trained to examine and address life’s problems in a holistic way. They elevate and empower people, giving them the ability to solve problems, cope with personal roadblocks and get the resources they need to succeed.
Come join us there will be a welcome by the Dean and others along with food and giveaways!

Dr. Wilson's presentation "Understanding and Treating the Condition of Poverty" brings a new understanding of poverty as an environmentally-based, diagnosable and treatable condition. This paradigm shift serves to undermine the character flaw mentality that promotes shame and stigma while promoting a science based approach to care. Using this framework, Dr. Wilson then presents the first evidence based standards of care to treat the condition of poverty that bring consistency in the screening, treatment and analytics associated with the condition of poverty. Today, recognized as a Clinton Global Initiative, Dr. Wilson's work, Transition To Success has statistically significant outcomes in 5 independent evaluations and is implemented in healthcare, human services, government, education and faith based programs around the country. Note: This webinar is free for U-M SSW alumni.
Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
