The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) will bring together hundreds of Social Workers and other helping professionals from across the country to expand their understanding about the importance of hope and resiliency in their work. Participants will enhance their understanding about the clinical and community uses of hope, discuss best practices, and identify topics for future research.

Social Work is the profession of hope, and this conference will provide an opportunity for social workers from every area of practice to refocus on the ideal that brought them to the profession in the first place.

Hope is a prerequisite for action, and Social Workers know that hopeless people often become helpless people. Social Workers help clients refocus and restore hope, and this conference will explore the numerous ways that participants can incorporate the concept into their work and their lives.
