Professional Development and Outreach Programs

At the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare, we believe in the importance of continuing education. Our dynamic professional development programs will prepare you for the challenges found in both social work and criminal justice settings. Dedicated faculty and community practitioners teach an array of courses that blend theory and practice while covering topics that are relevant to you.

Custom Programming

Tailored training

We will work with you to develop onsite courses specifically tailored to your agency. Everyone in your agency – administrators, staff, social workers and paraprofessionals – can benefit from the custom programming of our faculty and experts.

Expertise in many areas

HBSSW faculty members and community practitioners are helping individuals, families and communities to thrive. We are taking the lead with partnering agencies to address issues including trauma-informed care, homeless veterans, adult caregivers, children who help care for adults and addictions.

Convenient learning

Onsite courses help your staff learn in a comfortable setting. Professionals earn CEH credits and benefit from receiving the most up-to-date information about a specific area in their field.
