Summary

This book focuses on the present development, gradual evolution, and current status of social work continuing education. The contributors demonstrate the rapidly growing importance of continuing education (CE) in the social work profession; look closely at present trends; and address the emerging pedagogical issues that will likely frame the future. The rapid expansion of CE offerings is partly stimulated by CE now being a licensure renewal requirement across the United States, which quite clearly is having a central impact in expanding the demand for CE education and lifelong learning for professional practice.

Relevant for social work students, graduates and educators, in the USA and abroad, this book represents an authoritative statement, authored by widely recognized educators and practitioners who are on the forefront of continuing education and lifelong learning.

This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Teaching in Social Work.
