Social work researchers are trained to communicate the complexities of their research methods to other researchers, but they often also want to translate the main conclusions of their work to have broader impact in non-academic circles. They want policymakers, practitioners, and community members to understand and use their findings for action. This session will train attendees to transform their research into easily digestible segments, key points, and compelling narratives so that others can more deeply engage the public relevance of their research. Attendees will be coached through a process of identifying their main and sub ideas and outlining a mini-talk they can build upon using skills learned in the workshop.
