Leadership and Organizational Development

The Northern Academy offers several courses and other learning opportunities throughout the year designed for social work supervisors, managers and other administrators. These courses are carefully constructed with the specific training needs of Northern California child welfare leaders in mind, providing both information on day to day skills necessary to do their job, and the theoretical underpinnings of the social work field and current research.
