Liz Aparicio of the SSWR Research Capacity Development Committee (RCDC) is coordinating the Job Market Webinar Series, in collaboration with GADE President Mo Yee Lee, SSWR Board Member Jenn Bellamy, Laura Abrams, and Liz Lightfoot . The Job Market Webinar Series aims to support early career social work researchers as they consider how to apply their many skills to multiple markets in order to maximize social work research across sectors. Both webinars will be recorded for distribution to SSWR and GADE members.

The webinar will feature four panelists who will share their tips for success on the academic job market in both tenure track positions and other positions that can be later leveraged to obtain tenure track positions. Panelists will discuss how they positioned themselves to successfully move from positions such as postdoctoral fellowships and research scientist positions to the tenure track. Registration is available at www.go.umd.edu/webinar1.
Webinar 2: Making a Difference: Alternative Positions Beyond the Tenure Track will be held on August 20, 2020 from 1-2:30PM ET.

We are delighted to share that Ms. Vannessa Gharbi contributed to the new Curricular Guide for Substance Use! See below for the press release from the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is pleased to release the Specialized Practice Curricular Guide for Substance Use Social Work Practice, the newest addition to the 2015 EPAS Curricular Guide Resource Series. This specialized guide was created thanks to CSWE’s partnership with the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry and the Opioid Response Network, a collaborative effort to provide free training and education that addresses the opioid health crisis.
The guide was developed by a national task force from a variety of schools of social work and chaired by Anthony Estreet, PhD, LCSW-C, of Morgan State University and Rebecca Gomez, PhD, LCSW, of Our Lady of the Lake University. Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 6H79TI080816 from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. CSWE would like to thank the national task force members for their dedication and contributions.
The Specialized Practice Curricular Guide for Substance Use provides resources that will help prepare social work educators or any other educators/trainers responsible for teaching future professionals to practice in substance use. The guide includes specialized substance use competencies mapped to the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards.
All the publications in the 2015 EPAS Curricular Guide Resource Series are available for access and download here.
We are delighted to share the news that Ms. Vannessa Gharbi, a doctoral student in the JPSW, collaborated with Dr. Stephanie Teixeira Poit (a faculty member in the Department of Social Work and Sociology at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University) and they received $75,428 in funding for their project, “Predictors of and Strategies to Mitigate COVID-19 Cases and Death Among Older Adults in Nursing Homes and Residential Care Facilities” from the NC Policy Collaboratory.
The JPhD in Social Work offers unique opportunities for students to be mentored by, and work with, faculty at two universities. As this case shows – in what can be rewarding and timely projects! Congratulations to both Ms. Gharbi and Dr. Teixeira Poit!
