ANZASW Webinars

I just want to say that the Webinar programme that you’ve got on offer this year (2017) is AWESOME! Especially for those of us who live in more rural areas and find getting to professional development a challenge. I don’t often get to login on the day but having access to them on the website means that’s not too much of an issue – Mary

Wanted! Webinar Presenters

It was my first Webinar [presenting] and was easier than I thought it would be – Bill Shaw

If you are interested contact Linda Dockrill: lindad@anzasw.nz

ANZASW is interested in hearing from members and others who would be interested in presenting in our Webinar CPD programme.

We are interested in hearing from social workers and allied professionals interested in presenting on issues relating to social work and social work practice such as:

  • Research
  • Emerging practice
  • Fields of practice
  • Social justice & advocacy issues
  • Ethical issues

Webinars are usually:

  • an hour but can be longer if the topic requires more time
  • can be a one-off presentation or a series of sessions

Presenting a webinar counts for CPD hours and contributes to Standard 10 the social worker uses ANZASW membership to influence and reinforce competent practice.

Self Care Webinar Series

Social work is a profession that is about supporting others, advocating for change, and promoting social justice. We do this in a myriad of different ways and working in a variety of settings. At times this important work can take precedence over our own health and wellbeing, despite our best intentions to prevent this occurring.  In this webinar series we are offered the opportunity to consider why self-care is an important issue for social workers, identify compassion fatigue and hear what can help buffer the negative impacts of our work.  We will also be given the tools to challenge the “Drama Triangle” that can impact on our workplace environments.
