The Annual Fall Social Work Conference affords an opportunity to bring national speakers along with the latest research to child welfare practitioners in Alabama. Through the Title IV-E partnership between the Alabama Department of Human Resources and the Alabama Higher Education Consortium on Child Welfare, The University of Alabama School of Social Work is able to host the conference every year focusing on a different aspect of public child welfare.
The many workshops will continue the discussion of issues related to child well-being as well as workforce well-being. This conference is designed with the public child welfare workforce in mind but would be beneficial to anyone working with at risk children and their families - school social workers, therapists, foster parents, child placing agencies just to name a few.
The 17th Annual Fall Social Work Conference will be held October 18- 19, 2018 at the Bryant Conference Center in Tuscaloosa, AL.
