Survivor records of human trafficking indicate that up to 88% sought healthcare while enslaved. Once in a healthcare setting, most victims show “red flags” that may identify them.

  • Training and Treatment Innovations (map)

Course Description:

Compassion fatigue differs from burnout in that burnout is caused by stress, while compassion fatigue is caused by caring. Other names for compassion fatigue include: vicarious traumatization; secondary trauma; and secondary PTSD. Compassion fatigue is the emotional residue that one carries as a result of working with clients exposed to trauma. 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.

Social Work Practice in the Era of Fake News

  • U of M School of Social Work (map)

Course Description:

The term "post-truth," the Oxford Dictionaries 2016 Word of the Year, reflects an era where everyone is a few clicks away from

information that supports any goal, belief, or outcome desired whether or not that information is factual. Evaluating information and recognizing "fake news" is a critical skill for everyone. For social workers, advocates, policy makers, and others responsible for human well-being, it's essential to find reliable data and other evidence to promote best practice and avoid the dangers of inaccurate information. Skill in locating and evaluating information can also help a practitioner work with clients and others who bring incorrect information into an interaction. This mini-course will address the following:

- Understanding the phenomenon of fake news in the information landscape

- Building strategies for spotting fake news

- Addressing best approaches to locate "real" news

- Learning how to fact-check data and statistics

- Ways in which information is organized, structured, and delivered to support the dominant social narratives in the U.S.

Substance Use and Neuroscience: A Social Work Perspective

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

Course Description:

Perhaps now more than ever, social work scientists and practitioners alike affirm the need to fully understand the variability of

substance use behaviors, including substance misuse, abuse and dependence, from a multidisciplinary approach. However, the

literature and practice with regard to substance use and neuroscience in the context of social work remain in its infancy.

Neuroscience is concerned with better understanding brain function and structure across the lifespan, including the use of innovative methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging. This mini-course will provide an introduction to substance use and neuroscience in the context of social work and cover topics such as the ethical and legal aspects in neuroscience, potential alterations in brain function (e.g., cognitive) and structure (e.g., D2 dopamine receptor) linked to substance use behaviors, gene x environment interaction (e.g., neurogenetics), and the developmental and cultural aspects of neuroscience. Developing a fuller understanding of the neuroscience-related mechanisms underlying substance use behaviors is promising with respect to advancing the etiology literature, which has the potential to lead to optimally efficacious and effective social work prevention and treatment programs.

EFT – Your Highway to Help

  • Henry Ford Hospital Maplegrove Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

EFT is a mind-body-spirit self-care approach which involves tapping on acupuncture points while repeating emotionally-charged statements that relate to specific health issues.  This modality accesses the “stress centers” in your brain on physical and emotional levels simultaneously, thus effectively treating many conditions, like anxiety, relatively quickly. 

Originating in China, EFT has successfully been in practice for more than 5,000 years. Acupuncture is an adaptation of this process that uses needles and is included in many integrative medicine programs.  EFT is an evidence-based method that has been shown in several dozen randomized controlled trials to be effective for a variety of conditions including anxiety, addiction, weight loss and food cravings, depression, PTSD, phobias, pain and other physical symptoms. As a form of energy psychology, EFT addresses the root energetic imbalances that result from trauma and other emotional stressors.

Why words matter: navigating 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.

Advance Care Planning: Removing the Barrier!

Course Description:

Advance Directives are encouraged for all however, few people actually talk about them, let alone complete legal documentation regarding their wishes.  Research indicates this absence of advance care planning has led to numerous unintended consequences including things like: treatment that was not desired by the patient, delays in care, legal and financial complications, increase in spending and hence decrease in satisfaction with healthcare in general by patients, family members and other stakeholders.

Direct Primary Care for Addiction Treatment

  • Henry Ford Hospital Maplegrove Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Direct Primary Care is a newer model of healthcare where individuals and families deal directly with their doctor. No insurances, no obstacles, no middlemen. With Direct Primary Care, and my clinic- Beyond Primary Care, we eliminate the traditional insurance middlemen through a membership model of care that is affordable and gets people seen in a timely manner. This creates the time and space for people who are the most economically vulnerable such as the uninsured or underinsured. For others who want a more positive doctor-patient relationship, doctors can connect and engage with patients in a way that allows for a healing relationship and human connection. This doctor-patient interaction is critical in addiction medicine because it makes a difference in health outcomes. Not only can the doctors engage patients in medication assisted therapy (MAT), but also spend the time needed for behavioral and mental health to make lasting changes and have conversations about the need for engagement within the recovery community.
