Social Work Online Training (SWOT)

The AASW is proud to announce the launch of the Empowering Excellence Social Work Online Training (SWOT).

The AASW is working with high calibre thought leaders and content experts to create a new suite of advanced educational online sessions. This program will bring a particularly strong and diverse Mental Health practice focus, covering a range of clinical and therapeutic approaches, relevant to both early career, and more experienced social workers. For Accredited Mental Health Social Workers, the series also covers topics aligned with 'Focussed Psychological Strategies', a CPD requirement under Medicare.
