The Power and Practice of Love
Love is one of the most powerful agents of macro and micro level change, yet the field of social work rarely studies or considers how to practice love.
This workshop will explore the work of Bell Hooks and Brene Brown who have written on this topic.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify the ways love can be a change agent in the lives of social workers and clients.
- Describe boundaries and limits to the practice of love.
- Formulate ways to implement love into your current social work practice.
- $80- Regular
- $60 – Alumni, FI, Adjunct

Adelphi University School of Social Work is an approved provider for continuing education credits for the following:
- Social Workers
- CASAC Renewal upon approval
- APA Psychology

Successful completion for the award of approved continuing education credits requires attendance at the entire training/workshop and submission of a completed evaluation form.
New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education hours. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”
