If you are in Washington, DC for the NASW Conference, be sure to check out the session with Combined Destinies co-Author, Caroline Haskell, LCSW. I have worked with Caroline to help promote her book, Combined Destinies: Whites Sharing Grief About Racism. She gives a compelling talk about themes in the book. #socialwork #naswconference #2014NASW
PLEASE, MR. ANDERSEN, TRY TO REMAIN CALM. I PASS NO JUDGMENTS. I’M JUST HERE TO LISTEN. THIS IS SIMPLY A DEDICATED TIME AND PLACE FOR YOU TO EXAMINE YOUR INNER TOPOGRAPHY WITH SOMEONE WHO SHARES AN INTEREST IN YOUR FINDINGS. I’M A FELLOW EXPLORER, NOT AN ACCUSER.
NOW PLEASE, TELL ME MORE ABOUT YOUR GROSS WEIRD HENTAI COLLECTION.
Now Recruiting: Product Testers I’m looking for clinical #socialwork/ers with a tablet (iPad or Surface) that work with clients that have experienced domestic violence. If you’re interested in testing out a product I have developed, please inbox me, tweet me @SocialWorkTech, or send me an email: email@example.com.
This was me after my research methods midterm one semester. Everyone was angry at the instructor for making the test so hard, but I put in a couple of hours worth of studying and was able to get a ridiculously high score.
Moral of the story #1: the harder you work the easier things will be.
Moral of the story #2: don’t half-ass any part of your education or professional obligations.
I’m looking for a study buddy or to form a group (no more than six of us) for studying for the California LCSW exam. I would do this online via Google Hangouts, Skype, and exchanging information via Evernote*.
I expect to be taking the first exam on April 2015 (based on when I anticipate turning in my hours and the current BBS turnaround time to validate those hours).
I anticipate that I would pass on the group to whoever still needs this around that time (unless I don’t pass the exams on the first try).
Live in California. We are special, thus, there are law and ethics questions that pertain to our beloved and over-priced state. Not to mention, it helps being in the same timezone.
Hardware: You have a laptop, smartphone, or tablet with a microphone, preferably a front-facing video camera. Also preferable: you have a stable internet connection.
*Tech capable: Have a working knowledge of technology (e.g. how to use Gmail, Google Docs, a web browser, Google Hangouts or Skype). I will be using Evernote to collaborate with the group.
Good Attitude and Hard Work. I want to pass the exam the first time around and I do not want to waste your time if you have similar goals. I hope to attract social workers that want to learn, complete “homework”, and share as much as s/he gains. I want this to be friendly and casual.
