Event Description

Resilience-Driven Leadership (RDL) taps into the core principles of social work leadership and trauma-informed practice to provide attendees with the state-of-the-art tools and strategies they need to serve at the highest levels of excellence. Modules in the training are geared toward:

  • Current supervisors, managers and directors
  • Clinicians, practitioners and other direct service providers who take on or aspire to managerial roles
  • All social workers aiming to sharpen or develop leadership skills

The RDL training series program is comprised of 5 leadership independent modules.  Each module is a full-day (7 CE) session.

The 5 modules accommodate a wide variety of leadership goals. They are not sequential so social workers can choose to enroll in just 1, attend several or complete the entire program.

Those who successfully complete all 5 modules in the training series program will earn a total of 35 CEs and a "Leadership Certificate" from NASW-VA.


Module 3 – Making Difficult Conversations Easier: Effective Conflict Resolution with Staff
While social workers receive a lot of training on addressing client/customer problems and challenges, we are less prepared to deal with the range of staff issues that arise in social service organizations.  This module offers strategies for handling staff, intern and management issues in alignment with social work values and standards of professionalism.



This workshop qualifies for 7 Category I Continuing Education hours, including 2 ethics hours.
