This is the first of a special, two-part CEU training (3.0 CEUs total) with Maria Nanos, PhD, LCSW. To register for the second afternoon training, Sharpen Your Interview Skills, worth 1.5 CEUs, click here

The “pink elephant" is what everyone knows is happening but no one wants to talk about; violence, neglect, abuse, drugs, sexual behaviors, and illness are some of the issues families struggle with daily. Learn why these conversations are important and how to start them.

All courses offered through the NASW-Illinois Chapter meet the continuing education qualifications for LSWs, LCSWs, LPCs, LCPCs, LMFTs, RNs, LPNs, APNs, LCPs, and PELs (formerly Type 73) licensed in Illinois as required by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).

Speaker: Maria Nanos, PhD, LCSW, is executive director of the Center for Law and Social Work. Her clinical career began in 1987 focusing on children and families of sexual abuse and neglect in the Chicagoland area. Maria rapidly moved into managerial positions supervising programs in areas of mental health, child abuse, sexual assault, DCFS investigations, and, more recently, grandparents raising grandchildren. She is an avid advocate for human services in Chicago and frequent presenter at conferences and trainings. Maria is adjunct professor at Loyola University Chicago, a therapist for Porchlight Counseling, and has a part-time clinical private practice.
