Facing DEATH:the FACTS won't KILL you! - myths and misconceptions

Course Description:

The aging of our population and the continued advancement of medicine will only intensify the need for end-of-life medical decision making and increase the need for appropriate social work involvement.  Helping Social Workers explain and identify requirements needed for "end of life" planning and preparation is essential, especially when patients are near death, and at a highly emotional and chaotic state or not mobile.   Social Workers provide guidance and information to those who are severely ill or facing imminent death. Our course provides the necessary information for Social Workers to assist their patients, answering questions and concerns surrounding cremation, ground burial, green burial, and other cemetery provisions, including support services such as Grief Counseling for surviving family members.

Just Fix My Kid! Engaging Parents in the Therapeutic Process Using Art, Sculpting and Games

  • Grand Valley State University Bicycle Factory (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Children’s behavioral struggles are often the mask for underlying family issues, including parenting difficulties.  It is often easier for parents to expect the child to change, than it is to consider changes to the family dynamics and parent-child interactions.  There is often a fear of blame and guilt that leads parents from being as open and engaging as they could be to engage in developing skills to help their child.  

This training will provide specific activities that can be used to enhance communication, strengthen the co-parenting relationship, improve parenting responses, and deliver confidence to parents and children about the family structure.  Participants will learn these activities through power-point media, role plays, and active participation in the activities.  Discussion will be encouraged regarding ways to obtain parental involvement in the activities, and how to adapt the activities to family needs.

Understanding and Treating Men in Therapy and Mastering the Five Love Languages with Clients in Therapy and in Our Own Lives

Course Description:

We tend to think women as complicated and men as one-dimensional simpletons. As gender roles and expectations shift and technology has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, more men are seeking therapy and other forms of support. We urgently need to challenge our own assumptions about the landscape of the male psyche and what things men share in common with each other, with women, and how each man is--in the end--a unique individual. We'll also explore The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate, a 1995 book by Gary Chapman which outlines five primary ways we express and receive love: receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, and physical touch. Learn this model and how to apply it in your own life as well as with clients in therapy.

On Whether to Build Walls: A study of disgust, horror, awe, and fascination

Course Description:Emotions configure the self in relation to another person, environment, or idea. A notion can position one aspect of the self in relation to another. Each of the emotions to be discussed has an important and unique connection with the boundary around the self. Disgust erects a wall around the self.  Horror reflects the collapse or rupture of the boundary. Awe and fascination relax the self’s boundary and invite in the outside world.  Through these four emotions we establish or alter aspects of relatedness to other people, as well as to natural environments, concepts, things, and self. Clinically, alertness to the core dynamics of emotions can help attune us to foundational fears, needs, and conflicts.

Why words matter: intersection of substance abuse, gender, sexuality and microaggressions

Course Description:

In today’s more politically divided climate, using appropriate words in session with your LGBTQ+ client is about being inclusive. To be inclusive is to be accepting and affirming of everything about someone as a person. This presentation will talk to the importance of using appropriate words, especially at the intersection of substance abuse, gender, sexuality and microaggressions. Most of your LGBTQ+ clients have experienced some form of trauma in their past, and by not honoring or supporting them for who they are, you may inadvertently retraumatize them in session. Using harmful or offensive language not only retraumatizes your LGBTQ+ clients, it may endanger them to participate in self-harm due to not receiving the appropriate and much needed help they deserve.

The Science of Fat and Sugar: Appetite, Eating Disorders & the Reward System

Course Description:

The seminar “The Science of Fat and Sugar” concentrates on the recent advances in the field of nutrition science and the applicable guidance for health care professionals. As stated in a recent authoritative review

(DiMaria-Ghalili et al.,2014) “nutrition is a critical component of acute and chronic disease management, as well as health and wellness across the health care professions, each profession must reevaluate its

individual nutrition-related professional competencies before the establishment of meaningful interprofessional collaborative nutrition competencies.”

It is important to emphasize that the scope of practice of health care professionals includes not only curative and palliative care but also health promotion, disease prevention, and coordination of care.

There are numerous important discoveries and observed phenomena that are relevant to social workers, case managers, psychologists, nutritionists, and nutritional counselors.One of the important changes in the

current 5th edition of DSM is the inclusion of new entities in the chapter on Feeding and Eating Disorders: especially the avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder. Given the popularity of restrictive diets among the

general population of the USA, and an even higher occurrence of restrictive dieting in the overweight/obese categories, it would be highly desirable that providers of nursing home, assisted living, nursing,

psychosocial and counseling care were able to supply scientifically sound information, including that on low-fat and low-carbohydrate type diets. This will allow for better rapport with the patient, better diagnostic

approaches in regard of the cited and other feeding and eating disorders and provide avenues for personalized care and treatment of such patients (Willis, 2015).

The Science of Fat and Sugar: Appetite, Eating Disorders & the Reward System

Course Description:

The seminar “The Science of Fat and Sugar” concentrates on the recent advances in the field of nutrition science and the applicable guidance for health care professionals. As stated in a recent authoritative review

(DiMaria-Ghalili et al.,2014) “nutrition is a critical component of acute and chronic disease management, as well as health and wellness across the health care professions, each profession must reevaluate its

individual nutrition-related professional competencies before the establishment of meaningful interprofessional collaborative nutrition competencies.”

It is important to emphasize that the scope of practice of health care professionals includes not only curative and palliative care but also health promotion, disease prevention, and coordination of care.

There are numerous important discoveries and observed phenomena that are relevant to social workers, case managers, psychologists, nutritionists, and nutritional counselors.One of the important changes in the

current 5th edition of DSM is the inclusion of new entities in the chapter on Feeding and Eating Disorders: especially the avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder. Given the popularity of restrictive diets among the

general population of the USA, and an even higher occurrence of restrictive dieting in the overweight/obese categories, it would be highly desirable that providers of nursing home, assisted living, nursing,

psychosocial and counseling care were able to supply scientifically sound information, including that on low-fat and low-carbohydrate type diets. This will allow for better rapport with the patient, better diagnostic

approaches in regard of the cited and other feeding and eating disorders and provide avenues for personalized care and treatment of such patients (Willis, 2015).

Working with Under-Resourced Learners K-12

  • Kalamazoo Reg. Educational Service Agency Service Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Are you struggling with how to help students in your care who come to school unprepared to face your academic or behavioral expectations? Do you have difficulty getting parents or guardians to come to school or even to talk to you? If so, you are like many educators serving “under-resourced” students who lack the financial, material, or emotional support necessary to be successful in school. Millions of American school-age children are “under-resourced” and at risk of failure in school. Compared with other wealthy countries, we rank at or near the bottom on most measures of well-being or “access to resources” like material goods, relationships, health and education. For students, mental, emotional, relational, parental, and other key resources are vital to their success.

This workshop will help you to better understand the culture of poverty and how it influences values and behavior as well as ways to connect with students and their families in a meaningful and effective way. You’ll learn about strategies and interventions that work best given available resources, increase support systems for all students and their families and strategies for managing behavior.

Everyday Ethics: How We Develop Our Ethics, Teach Them to Our Ki

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.

Companion Animals and Healthy Aging

Course Description:

Can our relationship with animals support healthy aging?  Social isolation, loneliness, and limited physical and social activity are long thought as threats to health and wellness among older adults. Human- Animal Interaction (HAI) research points to the potential for positive health impacts increase in social connections – i.e., a decrease in social isolation and loneliness including through increasing health behaviors such as regular walking and social capital associated with having a companion animal. Animal connections have long been seen as a solution within institutional settings for older adults through the Eden Model. In this workshop, we will explore new initiatives including age friendly and natural occurring community efforts to establishing the connection between pet companionship and potential health improvement outcomes across the life span.

as a treatable, environmentally based, diagnosable and treatable condition.

The Science of Fat and Sugar: Appetite, Eating Disorders & the Reward System

Course Description:

The seminar “The Science of Fat and Sugar” concentrates on the recent advances in the field of nutrition science and the applicable guidance for health care professionals. As stated in a recent authoritative review

(DiMaria-Ghalili et al.,2014) “nutrition is a critical component of acute and chronic disease management, as well as health and wellness across the health care professions, each profession must reevaluate its

individual nutrition-related professional competencies before the establishment of meaningful interprofessional collaborative nutrition competencies.”

It is important to emphasize that the scope of practice of health care professionals includes not only curative and palliative care but also health promotion, disease prevention, and coordination of care.

There are numerous important discoveries and observed phenomena that are relevant to social workers, case managers, psychologists, nutritionists, and nutritional counselors.One of the important changes in the

current 5th edition of DSM is the inclusion of new entities in the chapter on Feeding and Eating Disorders: especially the avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder. Given the popularity of restrictive diets among the

general population of the USA, and an even higher occurrence of restrictive dieting in the overweight/obese categories, it would be highly desirable that providers of nursing home, assisted living, nursing,

psychosocial and counseling care were able to supply scientifically sound information, including that on low-fat and low-carbohydrate type diets. This will allow for better rapport with the patient, better diagnostic

approaches in regard of the cited and other feeding and eating disorders and provide avenues for personalized care and treatment of such patients (Willis, 2015).

The Science of Fat and Sugar: Appetite, Eating Disorders & the Reward System

Course Description:

The seminar “The Science of Fat and Sugar” concentrates on the recent advances in the field of nutrition science and the applicable guidance for health care professionals. As stated in a recent authoritative review

(DiMaria-Ghalili et al.,2014) “nutrition is a critical component of acute and chronic disease management, as well as health and wellness across the health care professions, each profession must reevaluate its

individual nutrition-related professional competencies before the establishment of meaningful interprofessional collaborative nutrition competencies.”

It is important to emphasize that the scope of practice of health care professionals includes not only curative and palliative care but also health promotion, disease prevention, and coordination of care.

There are numerous important discoveries and observed phenomena that are relevant to social workers, case managers, psychologists, nutritionists, and nutritional counselors.One of the important changes in the

current 5th edition of DSM is the inclusion of new entities in the chapter on Feeding and Eating Disorders: especially the avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder. Given the popularity of restrictive diets among the

general population of the USA, and an even higher occurrence of restrictive dieting in the overweight/obese categories, it would be highly desirable that providers of nursing home, assisted living, nursing,

psychosocial and counseling care were able to supply scientifically sound information, including that on low-fat and low-carbohydrate type diets. This will allow for better rapport with the patient, better diagnostic

approaches in regard of the cited and other feeding and eating disorders and provide avenues for personalized care and treatment of such patients (Willis, 2015).

Informed Approaches to Compassionate Pain Management

Course Description:

Pain affects more than 100 million U.S. residents, and most social workers will work with patients and families whose lives have been touched by pain. However, chronic pain can be devastating and a challenge to treat, leading to years of physical and emotional suffering. Effective pain management has been complicated by myths and misconceptions held about people affected by chronic pain. We must seize every opportunity to challenge patient, provider, and systemic barriers to effective pain management. In using affirmative models of practice, social workers can assist those with chronic pain reduce suffering and increase quality of life in a variety of ways, from providing one-on-one/family/group psychotherapy and education to fighting for health care equity and social justice. Special attention will be placed on pain management as a global human right. The roles of the social worker in pain management will be considered, and resources will be shared.

Understanding and Treating Men in Therapy and Mastering the Five Love Languages with Clients in Therapy and in Our Own Lives

Course Description:

We tend to think women as complicated and men as one-dimensional simpletons. As gender roles and expectations shift and technology has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, more men are seeking therapy and other forms of support. We urgently need to challenge our own assumptions about the landscape of the male psyche and what things men share in common with each other, with women, and how each man is--in the end--a unique individual. We'll also explore The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate, a 1995 book by Gary Chapman which outlines five primary ways we express and receive love: receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, and physical touch. Learn this model and how to apply it in your own life as well as with clients in therapy.

Ethics for Social Workers and Substance Use Disorder Providers in the 21st Century

Course Description:

The conceptual foundation of ethics represents an inherent and essential framework for behavioral health, including clinical social work.

In addition, given the demands within behavioral health, boundary crossings as well as boundary violations receive prominent focus and attention.  This workshop will actively engage participants, prioritizing current issues in the field through use of controversial topics and issues. You should come prepared for a thought provoking, emotionally challenging, actively engaged day via a multi-media, multi-sensory format, teaching to all styles of learning.

School Shootings, Best Practices, and the Need for More School-Based Mental Health Services *

Course Description:

Among the many priority issues facing school systems, school shootings represent an area of major concern. School shootings have generated a national debate on how to secure children in school settings in a society that allows its citizens the right to bear firearms. High profile school shootings have generated anxiety and fear among school-aged children and youth and their parents. Public demands to reduce the likelihood of school shootings include a call for greater gun control, greater police presence in schools, the issuing of guns to trained school based personnel, physical changes in school safety protocol, and a greater focus on screening for mental health problems in schoolchildren and adults working in schools.  

School social workers and other relates services personnel must be acutely aware of the circumstances in which school shootings may occur, preventive practices and best practices for reducing harm during the experience of an active shooter in a school. It is important that related services personnel understand the etiology of school shootings and engage in crisis intervention specific to the local setting.

 In this webinar, the presenter will discuss the reality of issues and options related to the prevention of school shootings. The discussion will include information on research findings, the identification of causal factors related to school shootings, and best practices concerning school shootings.
