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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Community benefit organizations must leverage this diversity of leadership to improve decision making, tap into diverse points of view, and inspire social change. 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.

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.
