Buffalo Niagara Summer Institute

             July 9 - 27, 2018

Where can you train with a top trauma expert one day and view the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls the next? At the Buffalo Niagara Summer Institute, a thought-provoking series of workshops held in one of Western New York’s most picturesque and lively locations.

The Buffalo Niagara Region features breathtaking sights, and our regional, national and international experts will inform and inspire new thinking about social work therapies, techniques and client approaches.

Held during the last half of July, our annual Summer Institute offers an intensive combination of one- and two-day workshops as well as one-credit MSW elective courses that can be taken on a degree or non-degree basis. Social work CEUs are pending approval. Topics include trauma, addictions, child and adolescent mental health, and more.


Most courses will be held at the UB Center for Tomorrow, Flint Road & Maple Road, Amherst, NY 14260. Please check course descriptions carefully as some will be held at the UB South Campus in Buffalo.
