Social Work Research Refresher Workshop

with Lance Peterson, PhD, and David Roseborough, PhD

REGISTER EARLY! Enrollment is limited to 20.
Initial priority will be given to advanced standing MSW students.

This non-credit offering is NOT intended to be a substitute for GRSW 580. However, GRSW 580 content will be covered in an abbreviated form. The workshop’s intent is to place advanced standing students on more equal footing with their colleagues who have just completed GRSW 580.
