Asian Americans and Gambling Disorder

  • Health Management Systems of America (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Gambling Disorder crosses all racial, ethnic, cultural and religious groups.  In American society, Asian Americans have been viewed as a “model minority,” assimilating easily into the mainstream with their strong work ethic, solid family structures, and high levels of motivation. This model minority image, however, while reflecting positively on Asian American immigrants, can hide the very real cultural conflicts and personal problems that members of this group experience.  Compulsive gambling, which can have a devastating effect on an individual’s financial status as well as one’s psychological and physical health, has become so problematic in certain Asian communities that the Massachusetts Council on Problem Gambling started a multilingual helpline to assist Asian Americans who are trying to cope with the consequences of this addiction.

This workshop addresses issues specific to the Asian cultures, the idiosyncrasies and superstitions of the various sub sets of the Asian community, and best methods for treatment within the culture, for the gambler and his/her family.

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.

Social Work Practice in Rural Settings Day 1

Course Description:

This minicourse will examine practice theory and techniques relevant to social work in a rural setting. There are many
definitions of what might be considered a rural community. For the purposes of this course, we will define communities as rural that have a population size of 2,500 to 20,000 with no major metropolitan area within hour of the community. Rural
communities are often plagued with similar problems as vast metropolitan areas such as high poverty rates, inadequate housing, and inadequate access to health care. However, the scarcity of resources and professionals including medical providers, socioeconomic underdevelopment, and physical distance from services and lack of public transportation are
frequently identified as compounding factors of living in a rural community. The impact of differences in the key diversity
dimensions such as ability, age, class, color, culture, ethnicity, family structure, gender (including gender identity and gender expression) marital status, national origin, race, religion or spirituality, sex, and sexual orientation will be examined, within the context of practicing in a rural community. This course will also emphasize issues of ethical practice as defined by the social work code of ethics within a rural community.

Day Two will be held on June 2nd.

Sexuality, Body, and Gender: A Psychoanalytic Exploration of Luisa Valenzuela’s Dark Desires and Others, New York Notes

Course Description:

Dr. Corbatta will start with the question, “What is the relationship between intimacy and sexuality, body and gender?” and will apply it to the work of the Argentine writer Luisa Valenzuela, especially to her Diaries of New York. Using a psychoanalytic approach based upon ideas from Freud, Winnicott, Bollas, and many others, Dr. Corbatta will analyze Valenzuela’s text under the category of auto fiction. She will be dealing with a recurrent pattern in the protagonist’s love relationships: fear of rejection, initial fantasy of merging with the other, fear of engulfment and abandonment, and ambivalent feelings of love and hate.

Practice Gap/Need and Course Description

Many patients have serious problems in intimacy and sexuality. Many therapists and mental health practitioners have theoretical knowledge of gender, sexuality, and the capacity for intimacy, but not how these concepts are inter-related in a real life and how to apply them to patients who have problems with sexuality and intimacy.

After attending, this presentation, participants will be able to:

1.      Discuss recurrent patterns of love relationships, using this work of auto-fiction.

2.      Discuss the relationships between intimacy and sexuality and between body and gender.

Certificate in Mixed Methods Research

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

Course Description:

Part 1: This program area will welcome participants to the MMR CE program and introduce mixed methods research to them. Research ethics and values are important for the responsible conduct of research and so in the components of this program area, participants will learn about the nature of research ethics as it pertains to macro social work and other applied professions. We will begin with a history of research ethics with topics ranging from the Nuremberg Code and the Belmont Report, to the U.S. Public Health Service syphilis study carried out in Tuskegee, Alabama. Next, we will briefly cover theoretical frameworks and the advantages of using theory for mixed methods research and practice in social work. Participants will be challenged to view the research process through a culturally sensitive lens. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to think about the implications for how the research we conduct with under-served and underrepresented groups influences what we learn from these groups.
Part 2: This program area will cover the basics for how to design a mixed methods research study. We will begin by discussing how to develop research questions, then we will cover mixed methods language and notation, and then we will discuss choosing a mixed methods design. The research question is one of the most important aspects of any research project.

Human Trafficking

  • Mary Free Be Rehabilitation Hospital POB Meijer Conf Center (map)

Course Description:

Objectives:

By the conclusion of the lecture participants will:

1.       Recognize signs of Human Labor Trafficking and Sex Trafficking

2.       Describe red flags of potential victims of human trafficking in the healthcare setting

3.       Identify common health issues of human trafficking victims

4.       Understand how human trafficking affects victims’ neurodevelopment and behaviors

 

Applicable to Social Work Practice:

As information about human trafficking (HT) is becoming more available, more cases are being reported and more victims are coming forward.  As reported by the Michigan Attorney General’s office, 330 cases were worked by the FBI in Michigan in 2015.  Sixty-two cases were reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center January through March of 2016 with an overall 39% increase in reported cases in Michigan in 2016.  Studies involving HT survivors indicate that up to 88% of human trafficking victims seek medical care while in captivity.  For this reason, Michigan now requires healthcare workers to obtain education on human trafficking for licensure renewal.

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

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.

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.
