This conference will explore social work interventions at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. The voice of Veterans as well as Active Duty, Reserve, and National Guard members themselves will play an important role in all conference presentations.
THE APPLICATION FOR PROPOSALS IS AVAILABLE:
Workshop sessions are 60 minutes in length and emphasize skill building with a practice-based component.
Plenary Sessions are 90 minute lectures/panel presentations that focus on research, practice, and/or training initiatives. Plenaries occur at designated times during the Conference.
