DSU Social Work Dept. to host Annual Field Instructor Training Jan. 7

CLEVELAND, Miss.—The Department of Social Work at Delta State University will host its Annual Field Instructor Training virtually on Jan. 7, 2022.

This year’s theme is “Hot Topics in Social Work Field Education.” DSU Social Work faculty will present on the topics “Creating Effective Burnout Prevention Plans” and “Creating Effective Professional Learning Plans” during the event. Up to three continuing education credits (2 general, 1 ethics) will be provided to attendees for only $40.

“Field Instructor Training offers an authentic approach allowing for engagement, reflection, observation and communication between our faculty and our field instructors and community partners,” said Loretta Jackson, Instructor of Social Work.

“Field instructor training is beneficial because it provides an opportunity to learn the foundation, mission, and objectives of field education. It also creates space for self-reflection on one’s reason for becoming a social worker and what it means to leave a lasting impression on the students and wider profession,” adds Jackson.

The event is open to all current and past field instructors and to the wider public. Anyone interested in becoming a social work field instructor is encouraged to attend. The deadline to pre-register is Jan. 1, 2022.
