Spring Social Work Conference: Working with Children, Adolescents, and Families
Social workers regularly interact with a diverse group of clients with individual needs and unique challenges. We recognize that different generations of clients face different decisions and dilemmas at particular stages and transitions of their lives. Join us for one full day of education and networking as we address current issues and hot topics facing children, adolescents, and families. This conference will be held on the MUSC campus in a new state-of-the-art facility in the heart of downtown Charleston. Topics include adolescents and eating disorders; teenagers and substance abuse; understanding how the military lifestyle affects children and families; families and bereavement; and more.
The South Carolina Board of Social Work Examiners will approve 7.0 hours of designated credit.

Charleston is a place where sand castles are built across the harbor from historic forts, where children ride scooters down 300-year-old streets, and where you can see modern theater in America’s oldest playhouse. Less than 15 miles away, you can stroll the gardens of the beautiful plantations, bask in the sun on wide sandy beaches, sail, play golf, tennis or ride bikes on a luxurious island resort.
