Social Work Lecture Series to Conclude in August
The final two lectures of the 2001 Smith College School for Social Work (SCSSW) Summer Lecture Series will take place on July 30 and August 6.
On Monday, July 30, Edith Freeman of the University of Kansas School of Social Welfare, will discuss common elements of effective cross-cultural social work practice. Freeman will show how individual and organizational narratives can be used to enhance cultural competence in social work practice.
Adolescent bereavement will be the topic of the final lecture on Monday, August 6. Amanda Sutton and Allen Levine, both coordinators of cancer care services in New York City, will present "Breaking the Silence: Learning to Decode the Disenfranchised Grief of Adolescents." Using music, writing, art, sports and food, this multimedia event will demonstrate strategies for helping teens find appropriate means of self-expression when facing the illness and/or death of significant others.
Both lectures, which are free and open to the public, take place at 7:30 p.m. in Wright Hall Auditorium. Continuing Education Credits (CECs) can be earned by registering 15 minutes before the class and paying a fee of $10 per lecture.
