Office of Professional Development
Welcome to the Office of Professional Development.
Through this office, the Phyllis & Harvey Sandler School of Social Work is committed to delivering the highest quality of professional educational programming to clinical social workers and allied disciplinary practitioners. We aim to engage the local to the international community by offering educational opportunities that enrich, nurture, and improve the well-being of all individuals.
Viewing Our Courses
We are in the process of converting our course enrollment process to a more user-friendly system, hence the multiple tracks below for viewing our upcoming courses. We appreciate your trust in the Sandler School of Social Work to deliver gold-standard professional development programming and look forward to seeing you in a course soon!
To honor social distancing guidelines and continue meeting your professional development needs, all Professional Development courses have been moved to Zoom, a synchronous online platform, until further notice. We believe that, under the circumstances, a “live” virtual experience will provide the richest possible learning environment, while also helping to protect everyone’s wellbeing.
Once it is deemed safe to resume in-person courses, some of our professional development workshops will be hosted on the Boca Raton campus in the Social Science (SO) Building and some will be offered online. See course descriptions for specific details. View parking information and maps.
