Continuing Education

CSWE will offer continuing education credits (CEs) for selected preconference events and panels, workshops, and oral presentations during the 2020 Annual Program Meeting (APM). CEs will be offered for synchronous and asynchronous content. On demand sessions will continue to be available following the week of the conference.  CEs are not included in the basic APM registration package, but you can add CEs to a new or existing APM registration for an additional $65 fee.  The deadline for obtaining CEs from the 2020 Annual Program Meeting is 1/23/2021. 

The sessions are appropriate for generalist or clinical social work practice and the degree of difficulty is intermediate. The target audience is social work educators, field directors, and field instructors.
