Re-Set and Re-Launch: Embracing Change and Creating Your Second Act Social Work Career

Course Description:

Fear of the unknown can keep us where we no longer belong in our careers and can lead individuals to feeling stressed, stuck and overwhelmed by their work situations. As human service professionals, while we are committed to helping others, we may not know what truly inspires and fulfills us on a deep personal level. This workshop is designed to help individuals connect to their deeper purpose, while getting unstuck and feeling inspired again.  This workshop will explore the developmental stages of life (milestones, familial & societal expectations) - what happens to us professionally and personally with each stage of life and how these changes may alter the way we feel about the work we do. During the workshop we will discuss the changing employment landscape (part time, contractual jobs), engage in a personal interest inventory of individual skills, goals, dreams, desires (getting to know yourself), while exploring potential ideas to get individuals thinking about intrapreneurial/entrepreneurial businesses.  During this workshop attendees will engage in a mini-business plan exercise, learn the importance of personal supporters/cheerleaders and what steps to take if these individuals are not present or do not exist. Participants will also learn about community-based resources available for those interested in starting their own businesses.  Part III of a 3-Session Cyber Social Work Series.  Participants may take all 3 sessions for a reduced fee.  Those attending all 3 Cyber Social Work sessions are eligible to earn and receive a Cyber Social Work Certificate.

Ethics for Social Work and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Professionals

  • Community Mental Health Association of Michigan (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

This presentation will engage participants in a multi-media, multi-sensory format, teaching to all styles of learning.  Case study material will be utilized, with video clips presented from social work and substance use disorder treatment disciplines, and didactic material that addresses both the conceptual and practical level.

The conceptual foundation of ethics represents an inherent and essential framework for behavioral health, including clinical social work, case management, peer-based recovery support, and substance use disorder services. While assuming all ethical standards and professional codes of ethics represent identical approaches to care, in reality significant differences exist. 

Many licensed social workers also hold certification as a CADC or CAADC, and must adhere to more than one code of ethics, significantly complicating their interactions with persons served. In this presentation, emphasis is given to examining personal values and ethical concepts, contrasting those personal beliefs to professional codes of ethics, and determining appropriate approaches to clientele. In addition, given the demands within behavioral health, particularly treatment of substance use disorders, boundary crossings as well as boundary violations receive prominent focus and attention. 

While some presentations in ethics exhibit a dry, boring, and sterile coverage of standards and professional codes, this training will actively engage participants, prioritizing current issues in the field through use of controversial topics and issues. Participants should come prepared for a thought-provoking, emotionally challenging, actively engaged day.

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.

Social workers, and other professionals, are in a unique position to influence this current climate of struggle by promoting compassion and flexibility in our clients, communities and ourselves. This workshop will include micro and macro tools that can be utilized to promote more psychologically flexible responses to life's challenging experiences...and create opportunities for connection and growth.

Course Description:

The medical community has made minimal progress in understanding more about  treatment  and care of families  experiencing   perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs). We are caring for women more often who are affected with this illness and have realized that they have different treatment needs than others with generalized depression and/or anxiety. Their needs can be so significant and debilitating that we need to learn and utilize better strategies of how to treat these individuals, including new fathers with PMAD, which little research and information exists .  There is a gap in understanding the best treatment modalities for this population.

When Trauma Leads to Psychosis: Healing Begins by Finding the Story

Course Description:

Many studies now provide evidence that psychosis can be an understandable reaction to trauma, abuse, and other difficult experiences, with dissociation usually involved in that reaction. Learn about a science-based yet humanistic conceptualization of extreme human experiences, and discover ways to help people change their relationship with these experiences, by collaborating in building coherent and compassionate self-narratives that set the stage for real recovery. Even when trauma is only part of the story of what led to psychosis, clarifying the story may be very helpful in supporting a return to a meaningful life.

Pain Symptoms as Messengers: Listening to the Body as a Pathway to Healing

Course Description:

This workshop will reveal how physical pain symptoms are bodily messengers that can help individuals understand and manage pain symptoms. These pain symptoms can be caused by persistent unhealthy beliefs and difficult emotions as well as physical injury. The unpleasant nature of pain symptoms generally lead to difficult emotions, which can then generate more pain. When this cycle of pain symptoms goes unnoticed or unaddressed, the cumulative effect can lead to more serious physical and mental health problems. In this workshop, you will learn to differentiate difficult emotions from physical pain sensations, as you practice a body-based strategy to manage pain symptoms for optimal health. The workshop will offer brief lecture, discussion, and experiential exercises. The presenter aims to have participants leave with practical strategies and a renewed charge for reading and managing pain symptoms while moving forward with their work and life goals when working with clients.

As long as humans have engaged in war, moral injury has existed. Over the years, moral injury has taken on many names, including soldier’s heart, shell shock, battle fatigue, and most recently, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. While some symptoms of moral injury overlap with PTSD, it is important to understand that moral injury and PTSD are not the same thing, and diagnosing moral injury as PTSD can result in a missed opportunity to help a veteran in need of healing. In this workshop, you will hear firsthand veteran accounts of combat exposure, the resulting trauma symptoms and injuries to the soul, and the difference between treatment and healing. With at least 20 veterans taking their lives every day, it is time to address moral injury as one of the root causes of veteran suicide.

*Recommended for LMSW beginning, intermediate, and advanced skill levels
