Social Work Professionals Will Receive CEUs for ETC


etc-conferences-logo-with-effectsMLJ Adoptions is pleased to announce that we will be offering Continuing Education Units for those Social Work professionals who attend the Empowered To Connect Simulcast on April 10th and 11th in our downtown offices. NASW (National Association of Social Workers) has approved the event for 11 hours of training. Other accredited organizations (nurses, educators, psychologists, etc.) may also offer training credit, but attendees will need to acquire approval on their own.  Professionals must sign in and out each day and complete an Attendance Verification Form.  Additional instructions and necessary forms will be provided at the event. NASW requires that each professional seeking CEUs attend at least 80% of the event to be eligible for credit. Certificates of Completion will then be mailed to professionals from Show Hope within six weeks of the event.

This training, based on the theories of TCU’s Dr. Karyn Purvis and working with “children from hard places”, will enable social workers and counselors to partially meet the state of Indiana Professional Licensing Board’s requirements for 20 Category 1 CEUs each year to maintain their licenses.

Additionally, certificates of training will also be available to Foster and Adoptive Parents who attend the conference.  Parents do not need to sign in and out of the training, nor do they need to submit a daily verification form. They only need to complete their training certificate and submit it to their agency for approval. It is each agency’s discretion whether or not to count participation toward training credits.
