Social Work CEU to be offered at Northwestern-Woodward

November 14, 2011 

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Department of Social Work, Social Worker’s Association of Tomorrow (SWAT) and the National Association of Social Workers-Oklahoma Chapter (NASW-OK) Northwest Branch will play host to a Continuing Educational Unit (CEU) event from 5:30-8:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 17, on the Northwestern-Woodward campus in the commons area.

Social work professionals will receive three CEU ethics hours for attending while students gain professional development. The cost is $25 for non-NASW members and $15 for NASW members.

“This is a premiere opportunity for professional development among social workers and a wonderful opportunity for students to connect with social work practitioners in the region,” said Kylene Rehder, department chair and program director.

Nancy Prigmore, managing attorney for Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma for the Woodward/Weatherford offices and retired Northwestern associate professor of social work, will present “Social Work Law and Ethics: What you and your clients need to know.”

Prigmore’s credentials include a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology, a Master of Social Work degree and a Juris Doctorate degree, all from the University of Oklahoma. Her work experience includes director of Education at Griffin Memorial Hospital, general counsel for the Department of Mental Health Substance Abuse Services and Domestic Violence under Commissioner Don Anderson, assistant district attorney in three counties and has maintained a general private practice.

For questions regarding the event, contact Rehder at (580) 327-8135 or kdrehder@nwosu.edu or Jason Thompson, event coordinator, at jvthompson70@nwosu.edu.
