August 2017 - Three Rivers District Update

Mary Abbott, LCSW

Hello Three Rivers!

Welcome new members !

As we enter into August try to find time to get outside and enjoy all that summer has to offer! So hard to believe August is upon us already.

I will be hosting my first event on August 25, 2017, at the Orchard Center Campus at Aurora University from 9:00am -12:00pm, which also happens to be my alma mater!

Lucky for me that the campus happens to be in the district I represent. Presenting that day will be Beth Plachetka, PhD, on Practical Ethics in Social Work. 

Beth has presented for me in the past a few times and always does a wonderful job connecting with the audience using humor and demonstrating genuineness. 

She was a school social worker for many years and recently attained her doctorate in social work. She is adjunct professor at Aurora Universirty and maintains a private practice in Sugar Grove.

Please consider attending the event to ensure you met the ethics requirement needed for licensing this year. I am looking forward to meeting social workers in my district and getting acquainted!

I would love to hear from you about any topic of interest for future profressional development offerings. 

Here is the registration link for the upcoming Ethics Presentation :
