Social workers and case managers play many roles in their quest to empower clients. One critical role is that of referring clients to appropriate resources. How can social workers and case managers stay informed regarding available resources in an environment that is ever changing? This informative all-day workshop will cover the basics (Medicaid, SNAP, Social Security Disability, etc.) as well as introduce participants to some lesser known resources (such as Circus Arts therapy and Hippotherapy). Participants will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and will leave with a better understanding of how to access various resources in our community.
Participants will hear about new initiatives and special programs from the Atlanta Prosperity Campaign and Georgians for a Healthy Future. They will also learn more about disability rights in GA from Joe Sarra of Childkind, social security disability from a GA Disability Attorney Lisa Smith Seigel, and the Behavioral Health Link.
Additionally, an overview of unique resources and interventions will be discussed.
Social workers, case managers, and other clinicians will leave this day with a wealth of new resources from the Atlanta community. The event will be held at Piedmont Hospital's Rich Auditorium on March 22, 2013 from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Social workers and CCMCs will receive 6 clinical hours.
