Continuing Education Trainings

The School of Social Work accepts credit card payments for continuing education events through our online store.

The professional development program at the WMU School of Social Work is distinguished by its quality instruction and advocacy for social and economic justice and personal well-being for all people. We are focused on the professionalization of social work practice by increasing your critical thinking and reflective practice skills. We offer these seminars and workshops to inform, and to challenge you to integrate new learning into your daily practice.

Future programs

We intend to provide social work ethics and pain management training on an annual or biannual basis to meet the needs of area social workers. As new events are scheduled, this page will be updated. Would you like us to contact you with updates on upcoming programs?


Continuing Education Collaborative

Continuing education courses for social workers that are offered through Western Michigan University's School of Social Work have been approved by the Michigan Continuing Education Collaborative and are included in their online course schedule. The Continuing Education Collaborative was created to ensure the quality of all continuing education programs sponsored for Michigan's social workers and to conduct activities that will help them meet their defined education needs. The collaborative serves as the collective body that evaluates applications for provider status. It is comprised of members representing academic institutions and social work professional associations.
