Has Michigan Gone to Pot? Current Cannabis Practices and Controversies: Medical Ethics and Pain Management

Course Description:

As of November 2018, both medical and recreational marijuana are legal in Michigan. Marijuana remains classified as a Schedule 1 drug by the US Drug Enforcement Administration.(DEA)-the same as heroin, LSD, methamphetamines and peyote. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine. Such discrepancies lead to confusion among physicians, NPs, nurses, PAs and allied health care professionals as to what they can and can’t prescribe or treat with medical marijuana and for what conditions. How do the decriminalization and legalization of recreational marijuana play into this landscape? What is the role of medicine, the “big pot/big tobacco” industry and politics? How addictive is marijuana (medical and recreational?) What is cannabis use disorder? What do evidence based studies show as well as evidence and data from states like Colorado? What are the dangers and risks of edible cannabis for children? These questions are answered at this conference.

Mary Free Bed Introduction to Motivational Interviewing

  • Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Behavior Change is highly sought after by patients and treatment providers, alike. Stages of Change theory and Motivational Interviewing (also called Motivational Enhancement Therapy) help to describe what happens when people change and then to provide a framework for facilitating movement through the change process in a way that is own by the patient themselves. This provides for patient centered care and also for lasting results. It is applicable for all behavior change, not merely those behaviors commonly associated with psychotherapy, but also those with any bio-psycho-social stressor or impairment of optimal life functioning.

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.

Sexual Ethics

Course Description:

Participants will enhance their ability to help clients manage sexual boundaries and challenge their own preconceived notions about sex and morality.  Therapists will question their own sexual ethics as it relates to consent and non-consent. An essential part of teaching sexual ethics is getting people to reflect honestly both on what they believe and on how they have been led to those beliefs.

Sexual ethics involve issues such as consent, sexual orientation, gender identification, sexual relations and procreation. This workshop will explore sexual ethics with technology, managing conflicts of interests as it relates to erotic transference from the clients, and ethics as it relates to working with sexual infidelity, clients who are managing sexual partners where STI/STD are present and ethical positions on sex work. Together we will explore how sexual pleasure is often narrowly defined in terms of heteronormative penetration, and whether it is possible to use pornography or pay for sexual acts if we strive to be ethically sexual citizens.

Sexual ethics are more than our personal choices and preferences; they are the ways we integrate care and respect for others, mutuality, and reciprocity into sexual practices. Thinking about the messages that influence sexual practices requires that we critically interrogate socio-cultural discourses about gender and sexuality and the contexts in which they circulate. This will be the framework for the course. We will explore gender, race, sexuality, and class construct sexual expectations.  We will look at how clients negotiate their sexual autonomy independently and in relationships. We will discuss how sexism, racism and the normalization of heterosex in sexualized popular culture and pornography shape sexual practices. Therapists will increase their understanding of sexual ethics and technology, their ability to identify conflicts of interest, awareness of managing conflicts of interest, their awareness of crossing boundaries for themselves and in relationships versus violating them, and explore sexual boundaries with clients along the lines of erotic transference from the client to therapist. Therapists will examine their ethics around working with sexual infidelity, HIV.

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.
