CASW is in the process of transitioning webinar platforms.
Unfortunately, during this transition, our previously recorded on-demand webinars will not be accessible to members for two weeks however as content is migrated from the old to new platform, it will be made accessible. (July 10th is the date we anticipate to be completed the migration)
Please note that the CASW YouTube channel has a number of the recent webinars up as an alternative to the CASW webinar library.
Also, please note all upcoming webinars will not be affected by this transition as they will be delivered and made accessible on the new platform from this day forward.
Thank you for your understanding during this time of transition.
Grief is a normal and natural response in this time. Grief is a response to loss that affects our physical, emotional, behavioural, social, financial, and spiritual lives. It does not only occur in response to death; any loss can cause us to grieve. So much is being lost in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Grief literacy provides a way forward. Grief literacy calls on all of us to be better acquainted with grief so that we can support ourselves and one another. This webinar addresses what social workers can do in the time of COVID-19 to be more grief literate. With greater grief literacy, we can all support ourselves and one another better, now and in the future.
Webinar Key Objectives:
- Review current theory about grief and loss
- Discuss how grief is occurring in the pandemic
- Define grief literacy
- Consider implications for social work practice
Universal basic income (UBI) has the potential to transform our income security system and reduce poverty substantially. Social workers, more than any other profession, can speak to the real-life consequences of poverty and economic precarity. Social workers can also assume a leadership role in work towards a UBI as a key part of renewed public programs that could equip Canadian society to weather ongoing and future public health, environmental and other crises. This webinar explores what social workers are doing, and what work still must be undertaken, to build a just, equitable and sustainable society that includes a secure economic floor upon which we can all stand.
This has been a stressful and challenging time across the world for Social Workers. Join this webinar to dive in to substance use and what we need to know as practitioners in terms of addiction and dependency.

This webinar will explore how VAW shelters and transition houses are adapting their services during COVID-19 so they can continue to offer safety and support to women experiencing domestic violence. After providing some context on the impact of COVID-19 on domestic violence and the VAW shelter sector, the webinar will focus on three of the ways VAW shelters are adapting their services to keep survivors both safe and healthy. Specifically, the webinar will look at the use of alternative locations for sheltering; supporting survivors within the shelter; and expanding the ways women can receive support from shelters. For each of these topics, Leah will examine some of the benefits and challenges, and share specific resources and examples.
