Workshops cover a range of topics including special populations, therapeutic approaches, unique client issues and professional development. Specific topics can be found on the calendar. The standing monthly time slot is the second Thursday from noon – 1:30 pm beginning November 2016. MWP is also open to additional pop-up proposals.
Interested MWP members are invited to contact Deb Rich at [email protected] to discuss topic, arrange scheduling and choose location. This is a volunteer opportunity for MWP members to benefit from introducing a broader audience of colleagues to your area of expertise and to meet new colleagues. It is also a small way to bring in financial support to the organization.
Cost: $10 Students and retirees; $15 MWP Members; $20 Non-members includes a certificate of attendance. You are welcome to bring your lunch and beverage.
