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.

Aging and Transgender

Course Description:

Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community face many challenges not faced by the general population.  These include, but are not limited to social problems, discrimination (covert as well as overt), disrespect, harassment, rejection, depression and anxiety.  However, transgender individuals face some additional specific challenges not faced by the LGB portion of the community.  These include legal identification that matches their gender identity; less understanding by the majority population of the T compared to the LG and B portion of the LGBT community; appearance and mannerisms that fit their gender identity; and greater mental and medical health issues.  One area that is especially troublesome for older members of the LGBT community is the care received in assisted living facilities.  An additional area that begs improvement for older, as well as younger transgender persons is where discrimination should have the least interference, and that is when they seek healthcare.

Critical Incident Stress Management: Assisting Individuals in Crisis

  • Wayne County Community College-Downriver Campus (map)

Course Description:

Crisis Intervention is NOT psychotherapy; rather, it is a specialized acute emergency mental health
intervention which requires specialized training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called "emotional first aid". This program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual crisis
intervention. Counselors, social workers, and marriage and family therapists should be familiar with the responses to stress, especially critical incident stress , and be prepared to intervene appropriately in order to help return the affected person(s) to normal functioning within their social environment.

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.

This workshop will provide participants with an introduction to working clinically with clients who identify as polyamorous/non-monogamous.  Learning objectives will focus on three different types of learning necessary to build confidence in working with this population; the workshop will start with an introduction to basic terminology and common challenges the community faces, continue with an exercise that encourages internal exploration of feelings/assumptions/biases about this population, and ends with examples/practice of integrating new knowledge with existing skills in a simulated clinical context.  The workshop goal is to increase participants' confidence, knowledge, and applicable skills to aid them in creating a safe space for their diverse clients.

Out of Control Sexual Behavior (OCSB) Versus Sex Addiction Treatment: Helping Clients with Problematic Sexual Behaviors

Course Description:

With the recent addition of the diagnosis “Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder” in the ICD-11, there is confusion about whether or not it applies to the “sex addiction” model. Rather than providing a pathway to healing, the “sex addiction” model too often contributes to clients being sexually lost and at odds with their erotic nature.  Therapists are left with both being unable to help clients with their continued out-of-control sexual behaviors and also with the consequences of being the recipient of a pathologizing label.  This workshop will educate therapists on the new strength-based model of Out-of-Control Sexual Behavior (OCSB) which comes from a position of sexual health as an alternative to the sex addiction model.  We'll focus on: How to help clients develop a non-pathologizing understanding of their own individual sexuality and erotic identity; A comprehensive assessment and alternative treatment that emphasizes the guiding principles of sexual behavior rather than pathologizing the sexual behavior itself; Helping therapists explore their own countertransference with clients struggling with sexual behaviors the therapist experiences as problematic; Differentiating normative male sexuality from out-of-control sexual behaviors around the use of porn, fetishes, and sex with partners; Educating therapists on healthy sexual expressions and erotic orientations.

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.

Understanding the Responsibility of Parenting Transracially

Course Description:

Adopting transracially requires adoptive parents to give attention to and have ongoing discussions about race and culture. A prerequisite to these activities is a willingness to reflect on one’s own privilege, to understand and identify examples of colorism, to have knowledge about how stereotypes inform implicit bias, and to deal with how those biases impact familial and societal interactions. The presenter will share her perspective in an effort to help participants gain a deeper understanding of the responsibility of parenting transracially, increase their awareness about the difference between intent and impact, and develop strategies for identifying and curbing micro-aggressions.

Understanding, Identifying and Interacting with Trafficking Survivors

Course Description:

Human trafficking cuts across all avenues of race, gender and cultures.  Too often the victims of trafficking are treated as criminals rather than as victims who have been exploited.  The focus of this presentation will be on the victims of both rape and labor trafficking.  Victims of both arenas suffer acute PTSD due to the sexual, physical and psychological trauma endured through their victimization process.  This training will help clinicians identify the population involved and discuss short and long-term interventions and treatment strategies.

“Only DEATH Can Set Me Free”: Moral Injury and the Veteran Suicide Epidemic

  • Bay de Noc Community College Heirman University Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

*Will contain graphic content*

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

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 and the Impaired Professional: What’s a Social Worker to Do?

  • Grand Valley State University Bicycle Factory (map)

Course Description:

This training explores the topic of helping professionals who are dealing with their own substance abuse, mental health, and relationship issues that could lead to impaired practice. Studies show that social workers report higher incidents of depression and substance abuse than the general public, but are less likely to seek help for fear of negative consequences. Additionally, colleagues are often reluctant to “interfere” or point out impairment. What guidance can the NASW Code of Ethics and research provide? Dialogue and exercises will cover identification, interventions, and recommendations for action.

Out of Control Sexual Behavior (OCSB) Versus Sex Addiction Treatment: Helping Clients with Problematic Sexual Behaviors

Course Description:

With the recent addition of the diagnosis “Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder” in the ICD-11, there is confusion about whether or not it applies to the “sex addiction” model. Rather than providing a pathway to healing, the “sex addiction” model too often contributes to clients being sexually lost and at odds with their erotic nature.  Therapists are left with both being unable to help clients with their continued out-of-control sexual behaviors and also with the consequences of being the recipient of a pathologizing label.  This workshop will educate therapists on the new strength-based model of Out-of-Control Sexual Behavior (OCSB) which comes from a position of sexual health as an alternative to the sex addiction model.  We'll focus on: How to help clients develop a non-pathologizing understanding of their own individual sexuality and erotic identity; A comprehensive assessment and alternative treatment that emphasizes the guiding principles of sexual behavior rather than pathologizing the sexual behavior itself; Helping therapists explore their own countertransference with clients struggling with sexual behaviors the therapist experiences as problematic; Differentiating normative male sexuality from out-of-control sexual behaviors around the use of porn, fetishes, and sex with partners; Educating therapists on healthy sexual expressions and erotic orientations.
