Waynesburg University has extended the proposal deadline for its first annual BHWET conference, Rewriting the Narrative: Advocacy in the Behavioral Health Workforce, which will be held April 1, 2022.
The deadline for proposal submission has been extended to January 28. The University is seeking proposals pertaining to current and relevant information on advocacy in action as it pertains to the behavioral health workforce.
Waynesburg University encourages licensed professional counselors, counselor educators, clinical supervisors, community stakeholders, human resources professionals, and other members of the behavioral health workforce from diverse organizations and disciplines to submit proposals.
The purpose of the Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) program for professionals is to develop and expand experiential training opportunities, such as field placements and internships, to improve the sustainability of the behavioral health workforce.
The BHWET program emphasizes relationships with community-based partners to increase access to quality behavioral health services, for populations across the lifespan, in high need, high demand, and medically underserved areas. Special attention is given to vulnerable populations, such as children, adolescents, and transitional-aged youth who are at risk for behavioral health disorders as well as individuals with substance use disorders.
