Think fast! Can you articulate the role of the hospice social worker and list the skill sets and theoretical frameworks used to guide interventions? If you can’t, you are not alone.

During these times of social isolation (a devastating new normal) interventions must begin at a level that is well beyond “emotional support.” This webinar will cover critical counseling skills that are essential for all hospice social workers.
