Military Social Work Conference

September 16 - September 18
Thompson Conference Center,
2405 Robert Dedman Drive
Austin,TXUnited States
Third Annual Military Social Work Conference: “Strengthening Military Families Through Effective Community Practices”

Multiple and long deployments to war zones have placed great strains on our military personnel and their families. Clinical social workers provide a great proportion of the mental health care to service members and their families in U.S. military installations worldwide, and in Veterans Affairs hospitals and community-based clinics across the nation.

To help strengthen military social work knowledge and skills among community providers who offer much needed care to service members and their families, the School of Social Work is holding the Third Annual Military Social Work Conference, Strengthening Military Families Through Effective Community Practices. This conference brings the latest research and most effective evidence-based practices to community-based social workers to better prepare them to care for military men, women, and their families. The conference also facilitates a dialogue between social workers embedded in military settings and those helping service members outside of the military health care system.

Sessions will focus on clinical skill building with an emphasis on best practices and evidence-based treatment techniques in social work. Topics will cover core clinical issues relevant to working with this population. Topics related to effective teaching and training of social work students in military and veteran social work will also be offered. The conference will provide a forum to meet others, exchange ideas, and develop deep support networks of colleagues. Register now!

LBJ’s legacy on social issues

September 16 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 am
Utopia Theatre, School of Social Work,
1925 San Jacinto Blvd.
Austin,TXUnited States

A panel discussion with the artistic team of the Chicago-based dance company The Seldoms, which is presenting Power Goes at the Texas Performing Arts Center on September 16-18.

President Lyndon Baines Johnson said, “Power is where power goes.” LBJ certainly hungered for power—and knew how to wield it. He intrinsically recognized that effective governance relies on successful performance, both public and private. Such displays of power established LBJ’s political career and helped push forward transformative legislation such as the Civil Rights Act and the Medicare Bill. In Power Goes, The Seldoms use the figure of LBJ as a lens to view power more broadly and to ask if the robust political muscle that LBJ embodied can even be possible in the United States today.

Please RSVP to vpackheiser@mail.utexas.edu, as seating may be limited.
