Dear Fellow Researchers and Practitioners,

With great enthusiasm and pleasure, I would like to humbly announce that I will be engaging in a series of MASW training courses,
starting domestically as early as this fall (October 2018). In this regard, I would like to solicit requests from related organizations and
individuals about whether you would be interested in hosting the course on site.  Based upon initial feedback, I will come up with a
schedule that is optimized geographically and in terms of various timing demands.    

The training course will be a 1-day
(or 2-day if advanced) course, the contents of which are outlined here.  More details about how to
become a host are explained below.  If you or your organization are interested, please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely yours,
Choon Park, Ph.D.
