NECON Seminar
The Kotzen Center, Simmons School of Social Work
Presenter: Kelly Pratt, MSW, LICSW

This training will provide an orientation to best practices in supervising social work interns who are either providing case management or clinical services to clients who have experienced trauma. We will discuss current theory and research related to the neurobiological impact of traumatic stress and complex trauma in an effort to provide a foundation for discussing how to prepare and enrich student learning.
