Calendar of Events

Social Justice at the Border

July brought the nation's focus to the thousands of migrants, mostly children, arriving at our borders from Central America. NASW/Texas firmly believes that this is a humanitarian, rather than immigration, issue.

Dr. Mark Lusk, EdD, LMSW, ACSW of UTEP and Chair of the NASW/Texas Human Rights Committee has worked in this arena since long before it grabbed the national spotlight. Dr. Lusk spoke to this topic in the July issue of NETWORK and in the El Paso Times.

"Unaccompanied Migrant Children: Overview & Recommendations," also by Dr. Lusk, explores the root causes of this migration, the inherent complexities, and recommendations for a coordinated response.

NASW/Texas Conference Presents over 80 Sessions

From working with veterans to setting professional boundaries on social media, from the DSM-5 to the ACA to HIPAA & HB300, from working with youth to working with clients at the end of life...
You will find sessions that benefit your current practice and push you to examine new perspectives at the 38th Annual NASW/Texas State Conference in San Marcos October 18-20.

Explore our session catalog and the many other resources offered during the conference weekend online.
