Leadership Training

NASWCO and the Colorado Counseling Association co-host a training on legislative advocacy on Friday, August 28th, 9 am-3 pm at the History Colorado Center in Denver. All social workers and counselors are encouraged to attend: clinicians, managers, students, new professionals, retirees, whether you are in micro, mezzo, or macro practice.

This is an exciting opportunity to hone your advocacy skills and participate in meaningful discussion on current issues. Your voice is needed to help identify legislative issues that support the mental health policy, our profession, and the clients we serve. Your input will help to the Chapter design a legislative strategy for the coming session. 

Registration is through the CCA website here.
Cost is $20 and includes lunch. Student cost is $15.

Recorded Info Sessions

Recorded webinars on these Info Sessions are now available:

  • Steps to Obtain the LSW/LCSW

Info Sessions are free to members and $75 for non-members.  Watch on your own time, as often as needed from your own computer. Sign up here.
