On Whether to Build Walls: A study of disgust, horror, awe, and fascination

Course Description:Emotions configure the self in relation to another person, environment, or idea. A notion can position one aspect of the self in relation to another. Each of the emotions to be discussed has an important and unique connection with the boundary around the self. Disgust erects a wall around the self.  Horror reflects the collapse or rupture of the boundary. Awe and fascination relax the self’s boundary and invite in the outside world.  Through these four emotions we establish or alter aspects of relatedness to other people, as well as to natural environments, concepts, things, and self. Clinically, alertness to the core dynamics of emotions can help attune us to foundational fears, needs, and conflicts.

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.

Ethics for Social Workers and Substance Use Disorder Providers in the 21st Century

Course Description:

The conceptual foundation of ethics represents an inherent and essential framework for behavioral health, including clinical social work. While assuming all ethical standards and professional codes of ethics represent identical approaches to care, significant differences exist. In this workshop, emphasis will be 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, boundary crossings as well as boundary violations receive prominent focus and attention.  This workshop will actively engage participants, prioritizing current issues in the field through use of controversial topics and issues. You should come prepared for a thought provoking, emotionally challenging, actively engaged day via a multi-media, multi-sensory format, teaching to all styles of learning. Case study material will be utilized, with video clips presented from various health care disciplines, and didactic material that addresses both the conceptual and practical level.

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

  • Grand Valley State University Bicycle Factory (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.

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.

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.
