Documentation?!? I didn’t take this course in Grad School! What I learned was how to memorize all the Theories and become a Pro at role-playing with a hypothetical client, but learning how to write a progress note was not on the course schedule.
NASW-CA Chapter is proud to collaborate with Stanford Sierra Youth & Families on a new training course, “Long Story Short: Showcasing your Service in Notes, Quickly“, where attendees will be learning about how to properly perform documentation when seeing clients.
This is a foundational course that meets criteria towards Certification for NASW-CA Documentation Integrity. Attendees will receive proof of attendance. NASW-CA and SSYF are committed to diversifying the behavioral health field and invite providers that represent BIPOC and marginalized communities to join us without cost. Fees should not act as a barrier and we invite you to apply for a scholarship as needed. To apply for a scholarship, click here!
