NASW Illinois Chapter Chosen for Online Training Program for Studying Aging Adults

The Institute for Geriatric Social Work (IGSW) located in the School of Social Work at Boston University has awarded a grant to NASW-IL to conduct a pilot online training program to study the aging adult. This is only the second program of its kind in the country.  In her letter awarding the grant to NASW-IL, Kathy Kuhn, Director of Education and Training for IGSW, states, “The Retired Social Workers Project is quite innovative and we are excited to support your efforts to provide retired socialworkers with the skills they need to effectively meet the challenges of our aging society.”

 The program consists of seven on-line courses that focus on the dynamics of the aging adult plus four Face-To-Face group sessions led by Dr. Marcia Spira, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, Loyola University Chicago. The program is FREE and provides CEUs and a Certificate from IGSW to Retired Social Workers and other participants. The first program in the series will be held on Wednesday, May 11, 2005, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at the NASW Chicago Chapter office at 180 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 400.

 The program will continue through November of this year. The four required on-line courses are (1) Retirement Trends, Images and Realities, (2) Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment, (3) Coping With Grief, and (4) Medications and Aging. The three on-line electives will be selected from the IGSW’s library of approximately thirty on-line courses all of which relate to aging.

 The required four Face-To-Face sessions are scheduled on Wednesdays—May 11, July 13, September 28 and November 30—9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon—NASW Board Room, 180 North Michigan Avenue, suite 400, Chicago.
