Each June, the Minnesota School Social Work Association selects a school social worker who reflects the highest professional standards, demonstrates creative leadership and service within the professional and the wider community.
School social workers can be a vital link in coordinating student services between school, family and community. We would appreciate you making us aware of an individual who you believe is exceptional in their social work practice and who has made significant contributions in the service of children and families.
Please keep the following things in mind when considering a school social worker for the nomination:
Each year MSSWA hosts conference trainings to meet the unique learning and licensing needs of school social workers. MSSWA welcomes RFPs for potential workshops.
MSSWA Region 10 Meeting
ACE Interface Understanding N.E.A.R. (Neuroscience Epigenetics Adverse Childhood Experiences Resilience
Presented by Dan Porter, MSW, LICSW
Course description: Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities
The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study findings represent a paradigm shift in human understanding of the origins of physical, social mental and societal health and well-being. We now know that leading causes of disease and disability, learning and productivity problems, and early death have their roots in the cumulative neurodevelopmental impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
The Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities presentation provides information about the ACE study, along with neurobiology that explains why ACEs impact people’s lives, and what we can all do to dramatically improve health and resilience for this and future generations
