The 2019 AASW Queensland Branch Forum has been designed to sharpen social worker’s practice toolkits through high quality practice and skill-based workshops in the areas of Children & Young People, Families and Health & Wellbeing. The program is configured to attract and bring together 80 social workers across the professional career journey and provide a broad suite of engaging workshops and networking opportunities. It is expected that this forum will be the pinnacle of the Continuing Professional Development Calendar for Social Work in early 2019.
