About the workshop series:
The Doctoral Program Research Lecture Series (DPRLS) is designed to further enhance the research training of current Silver School of Social Work doctoral students. Specifically, the DPRLS will expose students to focused substantive, methodological, and statistical topics identified by students as areas where additional doctoral student training is needed. The DPRLS is unique in that its focus is on the acquisition of specific research knowledge, skills and competencies within a focused learning opportunity.
