Continuing Studies Adds In-person Seminars for Social Workers

Galloway, N.J. — Stockton University’s Office of Continuing Studies and Adult Education is expanding its Social Worker Continuing Education Program this spring to include more in-person seminars.  

“For the past two-and-a-half years, we have offered distinctive online courses for the mental health community, and now are ready to provide more in-depth, classroom-based training,” said Diana Strelczyk, assistant director of Continuing Studies and Adult Education

The first in-person workshop is designed for social workers and mental health professionals and will focus on defining Ethical Non-Monogamy (ENM), learning the differences between ENM and polyamory relationships, and help social workers identify the clinical applications and resources for working with their patients in ENM relationships.  

The workshop will be held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, April 14 at the John F. Scarpa Academic Center at Stockton Atlantic City. Free parking, complimentary breakfast and afternoon refreshments will be provided. Social workers in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia will receive 6.0 continuing education credits in Clinical or Social/Cultural Competency. The seminar is $175; Stockton students or alums can save $10.

The presenter, Dr. James Fedor, Ph.D., LCSW, holds degrees from Rutgers University and has been in clinical practice as a psychotherapist and psychotherapy staff supervisor with the Institute for Personal Growth since 2013.  

“Social workers and mental health professionals should expect to see more in-person training, symposiums, and eventually full conferences at Stockton Atlantic City in the near future,” Strelczyk said. “Stockton's Office of Continuing Studies and Adult Education hopes to make our Atlantic City campus the premier destination in southern New Jersey for mental health professional continuing education credit (CEU).”

Upcoming online workshops in the Social Work Continuing Education Program include:

  • When Caring Hurts: Violence in Health Care Settings, 4:30 p.m., March 7
  • Racial Framing: Dissect How Racial Framing is Used Amongst People of Color, 9 a.m., March 9
  • Transformational Breath Series, 6:30 p.m., April 12, 19 & 26
