LearnUFT courses for Social Workers

As a state-approved provider of Continuing Education hours for Licensed Master Social Workers, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Psychologists and Licensed Mental Health Counselors, the UFT's LearnUFT program offers low-cost professional learning opportunities specifically designed to meet our members’ needs.

Beginning January 1, 2015, each Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) must complete 36 hours of approved continuing education courses for each triennial registration period. No more than 12 hours of continuing education activities in any 36 month period, or one-third of the total hours in periods of other length, may consist of self-study educational activities from New York State Education Department-approved providers.

Licensed Mental Health Counselors are also eligible to take these courses and earn CEUs.

Social workers and psychologists are invited to register for a UFT Member Assistance Program workshop on trauma.

| 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Social workers and psychologists are invited to register for a UFT Member Assistance Program workshop on the connection between mind and body. Have you heard of the gut-brain connection? Researchers have found that a lesser-known nervous system in our guts (our “second brain”) communicates with the brain and plays a key role in our overall mental health. This lecture will discuss the mind-body connection and the relationship between our digestive health and mood. We’ll pay particular attention to how one might use this information in a school-based setting.
