Because of limited numbers, peer supervision is not provided for other professionals or private practitioners.

Registration is essential. Cost: $5 AASW members, $10 non-members.

Wednesday, 13 July 2022 VIC - What is Our Social Worker Identity? webinar
Webinar

VIC Branch: Victorian Professional Identity and Events Sub-Committee (VPIE) is pleased to present the following webinar: What is Our Social Worker Identity?

If you are like most social workers you have probably felt misunderstood by colleagues from other disciplines at some time. Our values make us a little different than other professions. But, when it comes to trying to explain the differences we feel ill equipped to explain the differences. This leads us to question our identity as social workers. What is it that really makes us different? What are our values? What really makes up our social work identity? In this two hour lunchtime session we will hear from a panel of experts who will guide us to answer these questions and who will ask us more. Join us as we seek to understand the social work identity.

Members - $20 inc GST
Student Members - $15 inc GST
