Natural disasters. School violence. Domestic terrorism. Racial disparities. Domestic violence. These events, and many more, can have a tremendous impact on people’s daily lives. Due to our skills and the presence of social workers in various settings (hospitals, schools, mental health centers, etc), social workers are increasingly accepting the challenge to address these issues. In this session, social workers from the broader community and our NASW Chapters will share unique, effective techniques they have employed to help others deal with these life-changing events from a micro and a macro perspective. It is intended to highlight the positive ways social workers across the nation are working to elevate their communities and to provide the attendees with takeaways that they can implement in their own communities.
