Professional Development

The Field Practice Institute aims to provide a variety of professional development opportunities to partnering field instructors. These opportunities include a focus on best supervisory practices, ethics, diversity and difference, and integrating the core competencies and practice behaviors into the supervisory process.

In addition, the Field Practice Institute offers an Annual Summit on Emerging Issues in Social Work Practice. In continuing to foster a sense of seamlessness between social work education and practice, we take this opportunity to bring field instructors, students, faculty and practitioners together to explore emerging issues, dialogue about challenges, successes and opportunities, and to consider future collaboration.

Other Opportunities for professional development

St. Thomas School of Social Work is committed to providing the regional social work community with high-quality, affordable opportunities to earn the contact hours needed to achieve and maintain social work licensure. Throughout the year, we offer a variety of programs and signature events for which we provide certificates of attendance.
