Professional Development

CaringMatters hosts yearly professional development seminars for social workers, psychologists, counselors, and other mental health professionals. Continuing education credits (CEUs) are available for social workers licensed in Maryland. Other professionals can submit the Certificate of Attendance, provided to all participants, to the appropriate board for consideration for CEUs. These free seminars are also informative for physicians, nurses, child life specialists, and other allied health professionals, as well as CaringMatters Staff and Volunteers and Caregivers. 

Past seminars include "Working with Grieving Clients: An Overview of Grief and Grief Interventions" presented by Dr. Karen O'Brien, in partnership with UMBC School of Social Work.
