Social Work Do’s and Don’ts
in Working with Aging Veterans

Social workers are finding a rapidly aging veteran population that needs help with many different services so they can remain independent and in the community.  These veterans may also be dealing with cognitive issues such as dementia, ABI, and PTSD.  This presentation is intended to provide information about accessing various veterans’ services and benefits inside as well as outside of the Veterans Administrative spectrum.  Eric Rodko, LMSW, Executive Director of St. Luke’s Community Services in Middletown, will be the presenter, sharing his own experiences of navigating the complex system of state and federal benefits for veterans while gaining knowledge and honing his sensitivity to the veteran culture.  He has worked in the field providing services to the elderly population for over 20 years and has much to share about services for aging veterans and their family caregivers.

Workshop will be held at the
University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford
on February 26, 2016 from 9:30 to 11:30 in the Crystal Room

Coffee and Registration from 9 to 9:30
Approved for 2 CECs
$40 for NASW Members; $70 for non Members

*If you are renewing your license for the FIRST time, you will need to fulfill this requirement in 2016.
