Continuing Education Units

The SSWR roundtables, grouped paper sessions, symposia, plenary sessions, and all of the Tuesday morning sessions (research methods workshops and special sessions on research priorities and capacity building) meet requirements for continuing education units (CEUs) for social workers, as approved by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). Please note that not all states accept NASW-approved CEUs. We strongly advise you to check with the organization(s) that is responsible for your state license renewal that NASW-approved CEUs are acceptable.

The number of CEUs that could be earned from the virtual conference Tuesday-Friday is up to 18 CEUs. The number of CEUs you could earn is dependent on the number of live sessions you attended from start to finish. 

To receive CEUs, the Virtual Participant Attendance Monitoring Form must be completed and submitted electronically to SSWR CEU Staff ( by Friday, January 22, 2021, 7:00 pm, EST. If you signed up for CEUs with your registration, you will receive the CEU form via email prior to the conference. No partial credit for any of the sessions can be awarded. Participants must remain throughout entire virtual sessions to receive credits. CEU forms will NOT be available after the Conference ends.

Please note it is NASW policy that oral paper presenters, roundtable speakers, symposium organizers, discussants, and presenters may not receive credit from the session in which they are participating.
