The cross-currents of professional and personal identity in late-career catch many good social workers off-guard. This conference will orient social workers currently in the second half of their careers to the important developmental challenges of late-career life. All social workers serving mature adults will learn from this developmental focus - as well and our clients anticipate and prepare for transition to the new autonomy, identity hazards and opportunities of this tricky period - with or without continuing 'work.' We will challenge our social traditions of bearing late-career stresses in isolation, in favor of a more communal model of growth.


Panel Speakers:

  • Leslie Bass, LICSW, works in private practice, and previously served as adjunct faculty in clinical practice at Simmons College and Boston College Schools of Social Work.
  • Joan Ditzion, LICSW, is the co-founder and co-author of Our Bodies Ourselves.
  • Larry Elle, MSW, is a Career Counselor at Success Associates Career Services.
  • Bet MacArthur, LICSW, works in Private Practice in Cambridge, and is the Co-Chair of NASW-MA's Retired and Retiring Shared Interest Group.
  • Judith Meirowitz, LICSW, works in Private Practice in Lexington.


This program is approved for 3.0 CEUs.

Cost of Attendance: $50 for NASW members / $60 for non-members.
