At the 2019 annual meeting of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) in Denver, CO, I received special recognition from the Council on the Role and Status of Women in Social Work Education (CORSW) for her support and guidance of social work students. A special thank you goes out to Dr. Dashawna Fussell-Ware, current assistant professor, graduate of the doctoral program in the School of Social Work at the University of Pittsburgh, MSW grad at the University of Georgia, for nominating me.
I am very passionate about social work education and have demonstrated a strong commitment to teaching, training, and mentoring future social work practitioners and scholars. My success in this effort has been recognized by University of Georgia’s Career Center, which has acknowledged me in 2014, 2016, and 2019 - 2023 for contributing greatly to student career development and success the previous academic year. I was nominated for MSW Teacher of the Year in the spring of 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 and have also received three letters of distinction from UGA School of Social Work Dean Anna Scheyett (2017, 2018, 2020) for my positive contributions to teaching and learning since she implemented this form of recognition in 2016.
I have mentored and/or advised students within the UGA School of Social Work, in other departments at UGA, and across the nation. I also offer professional mentoring to students pursuing graduate studies as well as new social work and clinical mental health professionals.
* Lead Instructor
I was a faculty member in the Online Learning program at UGA. First, I participated in the UGA online training program to train and prepare faculty for online teaching. I transitioned the Assessment and Psychopathology course as well as the Direct Practice with Groups course into online formats for the Online MSW Program at UGA. I then served as lead instructor for those courses as well as taught them.
Direct Practice with African American Adults, Families, and Children
I created this Masters-level course to address the need for specific practice training for work with Black/African Americans, a population that is highly concentrated in the state of Georgia and surrounding states. This elective course prepares students for direct social work with Black/African Americans in the United States. This course is designed to 1) raise the socio-cultural consciousness of social work students working with Black/African American individuals, families, 2) recognize the diverse and unique needs of Black/African American clients, and 3) help students identify, select, apply, and evaluate appropriate intervention techniques for clinical social work practice with a diverse Black/African American client population. Theoretical frameworks and perspectives around direct practice with Black/African Americans will be emphasized. Concepts of intersectionality, social identity construction, systemic oppression, and power and privilege will be explored. Particular attention will be given to contemporary issues facing Black/African American adults, children, and families in the United States.
I have spent a great amount of my time in the academy mentoring and supporting graduate students as they matriculate through their various programs. That work has included:
I have designed and conducted several continuing education sessions for clinicians on the subjects of self-care as well as practice with African Americans.
If you are interested in having me design and/or conduct a continuing education session for you, contact me.
