Managing Ethical Dilemmas through Interest-Based Conflict Resolution

Course Description:

Ethics courses often provide social workers with strategic decision-making frameworks for analyzing ethical dilemmas. Although these frameworks help individuals make think critically, they do not provide guidance on how to manage conflicts when social workers, clients, and other stakeholders disagree about the most ethical course of action. 

This workshop demonstrates a conflict resolution approach to managing challenging ethical dilemmas, including situations where social workers have conflicting obligations under the NASW Code of Ethics. Participants will learn specific interest-based strategies and skills that they can use to foster consensus with clients, co-workers, clients, and others affected by ethical issues. In particular, this webinar will highlight resolution of ethical issues related to conflict of interest, client self-determination, confidentiality, safety, mental capacity, and professional competence.

Star Powers: Helping Kids with Special Needs to Bloom Through Reading

Course Description:

The person with the special need discovers how to cope and overcome his/her disability.
Or the people around the person with a special need learns how to accept and better support the person with the special need.

However, kids with special needs don't want to only read books about their challenge.  They want to see themselves talking to ghosts, feeding unicorns, and being basketball players, just like their peers.  Nor should we only present these two themes to typically developing children.  When I created the STAR POWERS series which is about a second grade who wants to be an astronaut and uses a wheelchair.  I wanted Star's wheelchair to just be a part of her like a leg or an arm.  In stories, writers don't constantly mention that a character has a arm or a leg.  It is just a part of the character.  I wanted STAR POWERS to be about a girl who loved space and not about a girl who uses a wheelchair.

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.

Reckoning with Sexuality

  • Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute (map)

Course Description:

Practice Gap/Need and Course Description:

The sexual drive has been diluted in more recent application and Dr. Kulish’s paper demonstrates through a case description the importance of the analyst/therapist focusing on the sexual drive in order to help a patient grow and relieve emotional suffering.  In this paper, Dr. Kulish revisits Freudian theory while comparing it and emphasizing the added utility of LaPlanche’s theoretical emphasis on the sexual drive in clinical work. 

After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

1. Recognize the importance of an awareness of the sexual drive of the patient in clinical work.

 

2. Identify the ways that an increased awareness of patients’ sexual drive by the analyst can

    help foster the therapeutic action of patients in analytic treatment.

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.

Women in Leadership

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.

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.

Data Skills for Social Service Agencies

Course Description:

Social workers regularly work with a variety of data in organizational settings, including (but not limited to) client service data, financial data, program data, and community data. These data sets and data systems constitute important assets of organizations,and are critical for decision-making and ensuring the efficient use of resources. Organizational data systems evolve naturally over time as data collection methods, data storage formats, and organizational needs change. As these systems change, and new types of data are introduced, incompatibilities often arise which make the data unusable for many of the problems that organizations are trying to solve. The purpose of this course is to provide students with an overview of working with and making value of different types of organizational data. The course is built around two important analogies -- the data lake and the data pipeline. Through these analogies, students will be exposed to critical activities and important skills that are necessary for transforming messy data into systems that are useful for generating actionable insights. Students will be exposed to major approaches for storing, managing, cleaning, and integrating data, which include both traditional tools within spreadsheets as well as code-based solutions.

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.

Using Photovoice for Individual and Community Empowerment

Course Description:

This course will take place over six days, 3 hours per month.

Photovoice is a process in which people typically those with limited power due to poverty, language barriers, race, class, ethnicity, gender, culture, or other circumstances use video or photo images to document their environment and experiences and share them with others. It uses visual methods to communicate lived experience and to create a basis for discussion and action. The images are often used, with captions composed by the photographers, to bring the realities of the photographers lives home to the public and policy makers and to spur change. However, PhotoVoice can also be a method used direct practice, evaluation, and management settings.

This mini-course will cover basic methods for using Photovoice methods with individuals, groups, and communities. The course will provide an overview of the method and its application in different contexts, both domestic and intergernational, and how visual images can be a powerful form for communication. This section of the class will include a walk through the School of Social Work's collection of documentary photography. The ethical dimensions of this method will also be covered. The remainder of the class will teach methods for photovoice and engage students in their own photovoice project. We will end with an exhibit of photos from the course that will take place in our School of Social Work.

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.

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.

Trauma, Process and Representation

Course Description:

 Practice Gap/Need and Course Description: The concept of “trauma,” so central to Freud’s (1895b) original formulations of hysteria, continues to occupy a problematic place in psychoanalysis and for analysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapist.  This paper re-examines Freud’s concept of trauma and some of its implications for analytic process when viewed from the perspective of his theory of psychic representation as it has been advanced and extended by contemporary authors influenced by the work of Bion, Winnicott, Green and the Paris School of Psychosomatics.  Thus, in assessing the consequences of any experience or interaction, trauma can be measured by the extent to which various psychic processes referred to as cathexis (Winnicott 1971), containment (Bion 1970), objectalization (Green 2005), symbolization, figurability (Botella and Botella 2005), representation (Levine et al 2013), and other denominations of mental processing (Marty 1976, 1980) are disrupted or prevented from developing.  A brief clinical example is offered as illustration of these views.
