OUC approved to begin conducting Social Work continuing education courses
Ohio University Chillicothe’s office of Continuing Education and Workforce Development has been approved to offer continuing education courses and workshops for social workers and counselors.
The announcement comes from the state of Ohio after months of work by OUC faculty and staff members Dr. Ken Larimore, assistant professor of social work, Brenda Phillips, Associate Dean of OUC, and Alyse Klupenger to bring the program to OUC.
“By OUC offering continuing education credits and workshops for social workers and counselors, we are able to ensure that these individuals can spend more time focusing on the needs the communities in which they serve,” said Phillips, who also oversees the Continuing Education and Workforce Development program. “This wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of so many individuals who are committed to helping strengthen ties between our City, the surrounding area and higher education at OUC.”
This year, OUC plans to hold six social work continuing education classes and workshops on the following subjects:
Anxiety and Depression in Teens
Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
