Women in Leadership

  • U of M School of Social Work (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Evidence suggests that women face unique leadership challenges. Marginalization based on gender, family and work priorities, and societal expectations create a system that hinders the maximization of leadership potential. In addition, women bring
diverse capabilities and hold unique characteristics in the work world today. Community benefit organizations must leverage this diversity of leadership to improve decision making, tap into diverse points of view, and inspire social change. This course will examine the social, structural and personal dynamics that differentially impact women and men as leaders. It will prepare all students to identify and harness the specific needs and capabilities of women. It will provide the knowledge and skills to succeed and contribute added value in their roles as leaders at any level.

The Infantile Erotic Countertransference and the Work of Renunciation

Course Description:

It is a highly problematic but known fact that every psychoanalytic institute has had instances of analysts who have sexually transgressed against patients. Sexual boundary violations are an unremitting problem: they injure our patients and traumatize our analytic communities draping many of us in shame, silence and fear. This paper joins the significant scholarship in this area to propose that we do not, as a field, pay enough attention to the force and intensity with which erotic countertransferences can seize the analyst, neither do we consider the infantile sexual roots of these clinical phenomena which are endemic to our clinical work and extraordinarily helpful when well analyzed. This makes open conversations about erotic feelings extraordinarily difficult and it is that which may open the door to sexual violations. This paper explores some of the obstacles in having these critical conversations and offers concrete suggestions as to how analytic communities can help create space for them.

Family-Based Approaches to Working with Vulnerable Families

Course Description:

The family system has been shown to me among the most influential systems operating in the lives of individuals. In fact, researchers and practitioners alike have shown the important role that families play in shaping behavioral outcomes. This course will focus on family-based preventive interventions. We will work to identify the epidemiology of prominent maladaptive behaviors, including the prevalence and etiology. Drawing from this basic science, we will work to identify theoretical frameworks to help guide our practice. Informed by our theoretical frameworks, we will identify family-based preventive interventions, the common pathways and mechanisms by which change occurs (i.e., mediators) from these interventions, as
well as identifying for whom are interventions efficacious for and for whom not (i.e., moderators). We will then apply this knowledge to various case studies. This course will consist of didactic and interactive activities.

Compassion fatigue differs from burnout in that burnout is caused by stress, while compassion fatigue is caused by caring.

Signs of compassion fatigue include a loss of energy, grief, anger, frustration, tardiness, depression, feelings of hopelessness, irritability, sleep problems, flashbacks, erosion of idealism, spiritual distress, and a shift in one’s world view. People vulnerable to compassion fatigue include mental health workers, addictions professionals, individuals with heavy trauma caseloads, counselors who deal with death and dying, individuals who work with traumatized children and sexual abuse survivors, medical professionals, fire fighters, and the clergy. Participants will leave this interactive, skill-building session with tools that will enable them to prevent and overcome compassion fatigue.   There is a $19 charge for this session.

Improving Clinical Supervision Skills

Course Description:

In today’s clinical settings Clinicians, Therapists, and Social Workers are charged with delivering care to acute and chronic clients. In addition, they are often charged to deliver clients’ care while maintaining current documentation, exceeding high caseloads, and in some cases stressful work environment.  As the result, supervision is very critical in order to promote the staffs’ and clients’ wellness. So therefore, it is crucial that clinical supervisors are armed with effective models, ethical and legal foundations and resources.  The presentation will include small discussion groups, coping with conflicts, and scenario based learning examples and will serve as a catalyst for this process.

SELF-THEORY, INTERNAL WORKING MODELS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF NARRATIVES: WHY YOUNG CHILDREN CREATE AND HOLD ON TO THEIR STORIES

Course Description:

Since Bowlby proposed the notion that babies—attentive to their environments, and eager to survive—developed internal working models of self and self-with-other, we have discovered affirmations of his ideas in psychotherapy with adults, in neurological research, and in attachment studies.  The nomenclature varies, but the ideas remain remarkably consistent:  We pay attention when we’re young, and we work out mental schema to explain what we perceive.  The implications of these schema for future behavior and ideas-about-self are enormous.

MINDFULNESS IN INFANT MENTAL HEALTH: HOW DO ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION CHANGE WHEN WE ARE FULLY PRESENT?

Course Description:

Yesterday we considered the narrative-creating, coherence-seeking internal work young children do to make sense of their worlds.  Certainly it was implied that we must find ways to enter those worlds—and to invite parents to enter—if we are going to be effective in either assessment or intervention. 

What is required? Have we noticed that we are these children?  While we may have histories far less dominated by loss and trauma, we have still engaged in the coherence-seeking process.  We wrote our own “stories”.  Do we know them?  More importantly, do we recall the struggle to make our experience coherent? 

This morning’s intensive will give us a rare chance to sit with our own experience, to increase our own mindfulness, and to then imagine what the key results of mindfulness (attunement, presence, wondering, following, holding) could be for the next young child (and family) with whom we sit.

The Reign of Pain (Part 1): Emerging Concepts in the Role of the Brain in the Construction of Pain

Course Description:

Not all injuries cause pain, and not all pain is due to injuries. An explosion of brain research demonstrates that all pain is constructed by the brain as a danger/alarm function. It is imperative to distinguish pain caused by structural disorders from pain caused by neural pathways in the brain. Appropriate treatment of pain is guided by this distinction with the goal of resolution of pain for individuals with neural pathway induced pain.

This webinar can be taken as a two-part series or as a stand-alone course.

Promoting Posttraumatic Growth in Psychotherapy

Course Description:

 

As psychotherapists, we are well aware of the long-term sequelae of trauma exposure. It is possible to feel helpless when working with trauma survivors, even after we've used all of the tools and skills available to us. One emerging area in the field is that of posttraumatic growth. Research supports that posttraumatic growth is positively
correlated with stress experienced during the traumatic event, meaning that the events that challenge us the most really can and do lead to positive outcomes. Drawing from our current literature, this workshop will describe specific ways psychotherapists can help promote growth in their clients. Topics covered include compassion, spirituality, social connection, and meaning-making.

Ending Zero Tolerance: The Pipeline to Student Success

  • Ingham County Human Services Building (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Over the past 25 years, the nature and culture of discipline in schools has changed significantly. Disciplinary policy is much more formal, with broad-based punishments affecting many students. Instead of looking at student behavior individually, taking into account circumstances of an event, the students involved, and the safety implications for the school, many have chosen “zero tolerance” policies that limit the ability to look at situations on a case-by-case basis and according to individual needs. “Zero tolerance” policy adoption has led to increased involvement of law enforcement, suspension, and expulsion rather than strategies for helping students succeed(Center on Youth Justice, 2013). In this workshop, you will explore the history and impacts of the zero tolerance policies in K-12 in Michigan, including prevention programs, interventions, and the implications of the new bill, HB 5618, adopted in 2017.

Can School Social Work Practice Meet its own Grand Challenges?*

Course Description:

For Specialty Practice Members Only

Two overarching problems emerge from recent survey data on American school social workers’ (SSW) practice:  most SSW report that they spend little time engaging in school-based family counselling (SBFC), focusing instead on individual student concerns without family and teacher involvement; and few SSW report feeling prepared to conduct their practice in an evidence-informed and data-driven manner (Kelly et al., 2016).  This presentation will describe three Professional Learning Community (PLC) training and research projects currently underway at Loyola Chicago’s Family and School Partnership Program (FSPP) that are attempting to address the gap between the best practices called for in the SSW literature and what is happening in the field.  The PLC projects (in Ontario, Canada, Chicago, and suburban Detroit, for a total n=95) all participated in a year-long PLC related to enhancing evidence-informed, data-driven and prevention practices in their context, with a mixture of online and in-person training.  Preliminary results from each of the three PLC projects indicate that there are a range of effective low-cost, self-help strategies that can bolster the skills and knowledge SSW need to engage in SSW best practices.  Specific tools from these projects will be offered, as well as an opportunity to deepen and extend the learning from the webinar on Dr. Kelly’s website, www.schoolsocialwork.net

Neural Linguistic Programming – The Science of Transformation -- What Social Workers Should Know?*

Course Description:

For Specialty Practice Members Only

The interesting thing about the verb “change” is that we can change for the better, the bad news is we can also change back. Transformation is a more interesting verb in our language because the butterfly never goes back to being a caterpillar. It is a completely different way of thinking, and a completely different way of approaching life. Neural Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a very specific science; it is very logical and linear with a focus on transformation. This webinar is about how the NLP approach can be used by social workers to help their clients change and transform their lives.

Human Trafficking for Social Workers and Service Providers

Course Description:

In this workshop, social workers and other service providers will gain an understanding what human trafficking is and how they can help victims of human trafficking that they encounter in their field of practice, with a particular emphasis on healthcare settings. We will explore the root causes of human trafficking, and our role in perpetuating and combating the underlying
causes. We will take a critical perspective on what it means to help a victim of trafficking, as well-intentioned interventions can unwittingly cause the individual's arrest or deportation. Further, we will examine guiding principles for successful
engagement with this population, including trauma-informed care, cultural awareness, and harm reduction. Finally, we will hear about local resources that providers can use if they suspect a client is a victim of human trafficking.

Everyday Ethics: How We Develop Our Ethics, Teach Them to Our Kids, and Use Them in Our Social Work Practice

Course Description:

This course will help make ethics more fun and simple.  It's not enough just to be a caring social worker or to believe you're a basically honest person.  Ethics help inform our individual and collective mission as social workers and help keep us from losing our licenses, reputations, and inadvertently hurting those we serve.  We'll break things down to understand social workers' ethical responsibilities to our clients, our colleagues, our practice settings, to our profession, and to the broader society.  We'll cover the topics of service, social justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence and discuss the tricky real life situations we may find ourselves in.  The presenter will also explore the topics of honesty and integrity, disturbing trends among our youth and society - lying, cheating and stealing; how bad these problems are and if we are a part of it in the way we model our honesty or confront dishonesty in our parenting and in our own behaviors.

What Is Your ACE Score? Understanding the Impact of Adverse Childhood Experience

Course Description:

Increasingly, we are beginning to understand the complex and prevalent effects of trauma on our population, in both children and adults. The examination of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) through the ACE Study is unique because it provides the potential to understand how multiple forms of childhood stressors can affect many important public health problems throughout an individual lifetime. ACEs can affect individuals, organizations, and communities across both public and private domains, in clinical, educational, and law enforcement settings. Understanding ACE effects can help us as professionals and individuals begin to work around a common goal of preventing the accumulation of ACEs and moderating their effects. In this workshop, you will learn about the ACE Study and the impact on oneself and the community. You will discuss the implications that exposure to trauma in childhood can have on your health. In addition, you will learn about the important connections between neurobiology, epigenetics, ACEs, and resilience.

Depression on College Campuses Conference: Redesigning Structures, Spaces, and Processes to Promote Wellness

  • 915 East Washington Street Ann Arbor, MI, 48109 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Each year the Depression on College Campuses Conference hosts attendees from over 50 colleges and universities from across the nation for a focused review of recent research and practical advances in our understanding of depressive illnesses in college students.

Recent research indicates that approximately one in four college students screen positive for depression, and the demand for clinical services continues to grow. While traditional approaches remain core to our work, we must also explore how environmental strategies can be used as part of a comprehensive approach to create a campus culture and learning environment that supports mental health.

Join us for the 16th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference to learn about new research findings, innovative design initiatives, model programs, and policies which demonstrate how redesigning the physical and social environments on a campus can reduce suicide risk and promote mental health.
