Consultation Groups

The Groups will meet every other week from 4:30–6:30 p.m., after school hours. In order to be close to the workplace, the 2015-2016 groups will be held at three locations: Oak Park (Mondays), Loyola University Chicago's Lakeshore Campus (Thursdays), and Evanston (Fridays).

The following areas will be covered in the consultation groups:

  • Strength-based assessment and practice
  • Evidence-based practice
  • Resilience building
  • Response to intervention (three-tiered approaches)
  • Meeting social emotional learning goals
  • Collaboration with home, school and community agencies
  • Participants can earn 36.0 CEUs or CPDU equivalent

Cost: $1800 (LUC MSW alumni are awarded a $300 scholarship). Payment plans are available. Anyone seeking a payment plan will be invoiced for remaining balance. For information about this program, please e-mail ssw-info@luc.edu or mkell17@luc.edu.
