Ethical Obligations in Providing Trauma Based Services to African-Americans and Other Minority Groups, (3 CEUs-Ethics/Trauma)
In this class we will look at how we work with People of Color, Native Americans, Immigrants, and Families Living in Poverty. We will gain a greater understanding of the traumatic history and present challenges in providing services to these populations. We will look at the impact of trauma and how it affects a populations ability to accept help from large and small systems that are available to address issues that society is currently facing.
Through interactive discussions, handouts, and group activities participants will develop the skills necessary to have successful services interactions within various practice settings; as well as, take action steps to create peaceful solutions to combat fear, trauma, and upheaval in the community. (This class was first taught at the 2017 Summer Mini Conference) (Trainer, Tara Rice, LCSW-C, Director, the TARA Center)
Class 2 – 1:45pm – 4:45pm (3 Category I CEUs – Cultural Competence)
Believe it or Not! Developing Religious Competency in Mental Health Treatment
What do you do when a devoutly spiritual client comes to you, wants to include their spirituality in their treatment and you are not very familiar with their religion? Have you ever felt confused as to whether or not a client’s religion or spirituality was hurting them or helping them? Multicultural competency in the mental health professions includes knowledge of religious diversity. “Spirituality continues to be a salient aspect of human psychological functioning…” (Peidmont, 2004). Learning the basics of many religions and some foundational cross-cultural concepts and principles can equip you toward a more thorough religious competency.
This interactive training will help participants understand the basic teachings and practices of major world religions. Participants will learn how to address a client’s religion and spirituality, if and when to incorporate it into treatment, and some common issues pertinent to treating clients from different religions. (Trainer Erik Hadden, MA, LCPC, Vital Sources Psychological Services)
*Evening Ethics/Cultural Competence*
Class 3 – 5:30pm – 8:30pm (3 CEUs – Ethics/Cultural Competence – This Class can count as either Ethics OR Cultural Competence)
Ethics: Choosing Humility in Work with Diverse Populations
The NASW Code of Ethics has been amended with the expectation that social workers engage in the continuous pursuit of knowledge to effectively engage diversity and difference in practice. All too often we as practitioners assume heterogeneity when working with others and unconsciously default to a position of ethnocentrism. Cultural competence is a vital but sometimes ignored element in the delivery of services to consumers of social work services. Further, our competence as practitioners depends on habits of the mind, including attentiveness, critical curiosity, self-awareness and presence. It is often easier to require practitioners to be competent than to define what competence means.
This training will promote ethical practice by facilitating practitioners to more readily and efficiently recognize, respect and engage diversity and difference in practice for the benefit of the consumer. Training attendees will become familiarized with the NASW Code of Ethics requirements for Cultural Awareness and Social Diversity. Attendees will have the opportunity to develop their diversity lens thru an interactive discussion and experiential learning activities that promote cultural literacy of the various factors of diversity and how they impact service delivery.
