Ohio’s representation at the Midwest School Social Work Conference

Understanding and Restoring Traumatized Youth

November 7 and 8, 2013 Ohio was represented at the Midwest Conference by our President, Nicole Stacey, LISW-S; Legislative Director, Becky Wilson, LISW; and Recording Secretary, Jill Miller, LSW. They spent the weekend sharing with others and gathering new ideas to bring back to Ohio. Anyone who has a chance should attend a Midwest Conference. The collaboration and energy of other SSW’s will inspire and re-invigorate you to persevere in the valuable work you do every day!
