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.
