September 2017 - Three Rivers District Update

Mary Abbott, LCSW
Three Rivers District Chair

Happy Autumn!

My favorite time of year! Bring on the apple pie and pumpkins!

I held my first event on Friday, August 25th at Aurora University. I was so pleased to meet those of you who attended. We had some great discussion about the ethical challenges that social workers face in a variety of settings. A huge thank you to Beth Plachtka, PhD, from Harbor Counseling for presenting and facilitating such important conversations. 

I would love to hear from Three Rivers members as to what types of professional development you would like to see offered in the future.

I will be planning our next event in November and am hoping to schedule something of high interest in the area of cultural competence.


Please consider registrering for the upcoming NASW-Illinois Chapter Statewide Conference on Oct 23-25, 2017, in Wheeling, Illinois.
