Wednesday, October 23
12:00 pm to 5:00 pm

The 2019 Faculty Development Institute is Integrative Approaches for the Future of Social Work Education. This preconference event will explore integrative approaches that include body-mind-spirit, art-based, spiritually based, and culturally based holistic practices. Participants will receive state-of-the-art information on integrative approaches; have opportunities to experience integrative modalities; learn how to infuse integrative approaches into teaching and learning environments; and have access to literature, exercises, handouts, and other resources.

Advances in behavioral health practice research, neuroscience, psychoneuroimmunology, psychosocial genomics, and epigenetics affirm the importance of integrative practices and interventions that address the biopsychosocial and spiritual domains of the human experience. Consistent with social work’s person-in-environment perspective, these new insights compel social work to move beyond the predominant focus on cognitive, behavioral, and affective interventions to include approaches that tap into human creativity, attend to the body as a source of wisdom and healing, and expand meaning-making, thus addressing the whole person. Although integrative medicine, nursing, and other behavioral health professions have made strides to incorporate integrative approaches into their education, research, and practice, social work education has been relatively slow to systematically infuse integrative approaches into curricula.

Full event program coming soon.
