Practice Innovations From the Archives
Editor’s Note: As we get our school week started, we wanted to share some videos from the SSWN Archives that are housed on our SSWN YouTube Channel. In these videos, SSWN contributors share innovative tools & strategies they’ve learned to help build their SSW practice, before and after this current pandemic situation. A big thank you to SSWN contributors Marjorie Colindres, Eric Santos, and SSWN founder Scott Carchedi for sharing their work with us! Please go over to SSWNetwork (always 100% free to join here), and tell us how you’re applying these ideas in your own practice.
