Calling all Clinicians: Four Winds Presents the Lunch & Learn Series

It is certainly no secret that over the years Four Winds has prided itself as a center of clinical excellence and education. Four Winds has learned that the key to top-notch services includes the ability to remain both current and flexible. Toward this we are initiating a new educational program geared toward clinicians and other mental health care providers both within and outside the hospital community.

The new series called Lunch & Learn was originally conceptualized in response to recent changes in licensing requirements for New York State Social Workers.
 Accordingly, as of January 15, 2015 LMSW’s and LCSW’s are required to complete 36 hours of continuing education contact hours over the course of the 3-year registration period.  Four Winds has been approved by the NYS Education Department as a provider of continuing education for Social Workers.
The Lunch & Learn is a series of educational presentations on an array of important mental health related topics. Time is often a valued commodity for mental health professionals. These lunchtime presentations are therefore designed to pack pertinent information into an hour and a half midday time slot. Attendees are encouraged to bring a bag lunch with them.
The program begins in early fall. The first program is entitled: An Overview of Collaborative Problem Solving, presented by Fran Rosato, LCSW, Director of Clinical Education at Four Winds on Wednesday October 7th from 12:30pm-2:00pm and then again on October 14, 2015, also from 12:30pm-2:00pm. Attendance at both sessions is required to obtain 3 contact hours.
On Wednesday October 28, 2015  from 12:30-2:00pm, David Pogge, Ph.D. Director of Psychology at Four Winds will present on The Clinical Use of Psychological Testing: A Primer for Social Workers, For 1.5 contact hours.
Rounding out the fall presentations, Jennifer Powell-Lunder, Psy.D. Senior Clinical Program Liaison at Four Winds will provide practical clinical insights in her presentation entitled: Clinical Work with Adolescents: A Treatment Toolbox.

 The Lunch & Learn series at Four Winds offers NYS licensed social workers an opportunity to earn CEUs in a comfortable and intimate educational setting.  
Stayed tuned for the upcoming spring schedule of presentations on a variety of important mental health related topics.
