Rejuvenate Yourself & Shine at Work
School Social Worker Supervision Group
Next Summer Session: June 2023
You're exhausted. Burned out.
You see the immense need of your students and school community.
You're desperate to not feel isolated as the lone social work voice in your school.
You don't have to feel depleted - you can feel excited and energized instead!
Good supervision with someone who gets it can make all the difference.
We've been there. We both needed good supervision in the early years of our career.
We definitely had mediocre supervision. Some that was downright bad.
And some experiences with supervisors who were truly invested in our development and success.
Our mission is taking clinical supervision for school social workers to the next level.
Our priorities are quality, consistency and accessibility.
Our group is structured so you can get the support you need without disrupting your busy school day.
We combine cutting edge skills and and authentic conversation with a place to learn and practice your technique.
You get a revolutionary combination of personal support, important content, and clinical skill building.
Our work is firmly grounded in anti-racism, diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.
Don't spend another school year doubting your social work skills.
Join Shannon Ott, MSW, and Bethany Raab, LCSW, ACS, for a career-changing group experience.
You'll be surrounded by your peers. Join other school social workers as you up-level your skills, confidence and impact.
You'll learn from two Colorado social workers with a combined 32 years of experience working in schools and with children.
Together we'll tackle topics including
- Special education assessments
- Working with families
- Mental health and behavioral interventions
