    This year, to prepare for our conversations with legislators and other key collaborators, we are offering a 2-session professional development workshop on “Mastering the Art of Storytelling - Creating a Story of Self” with Chris Burgess on January 31 and February 21, 12-1:00 pm. Register for this event by January 31, 4:00 pm.

    No CEUs are available for this RECORDED Event.  If interested in earning CEUs consider attending the LIVE event. 

    Recordings will be sent out following the Live Events.

    The 'Mastering the Art of Storytelling: Creating a Story of Self' curriculum will allow participants to learn the essential skills of public narrative in a structured and engaging way by starting with ‘story of self.’ They will have the opportunity to share their own stories of self, receive feedback from their peers, and practice telling their stories in a variety of settings. By the end of the two sessions, participants will be able to craft clear, compelling stories of self that they can use to advocate for change.

    Here is a flier with additional information on the event and speakers.

    Join us for our Fifth Annual Day at the Capitol, presented by the Iowa School Social Workers’ Association and the Iowa School Psychologists Association! A Day at the Capitol provides an opportunity for us to come together and share with state lawmakers about how we address student barriers to learning and academic success in cost-effective ways. This is a professional development opportunity, not a political lobby day. The ISSWA/ISPA Day at the Capitol will be on March 7, 7:30 am.-3:00 pm. Earn up to 7 CEUs. Day at the Capitol event details and agenda may be found here. Register for this event by February 29, 4:00 pm.  Refunds for these events will not be issued after this date.
