The Bully in the Workplace! Emotional and Ethical Implications

According to Dr. Ruth Namie of the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI), “Work Shouldn’t Hurt”! Work should be a place where excellence and productivity are expected, but managers should not create or encourage hostile work environments that cause psychological harm to employees. However, the reality is that one in ten professionals will experience workplace bullying or abuse in their career (Workplace Bullying Institute, 2014).

This interactive training will help mental health participants understand the characteristics of workplace bullying. The legal, ethical and health implications of workplace bullying will be explored. Through videos and interactive discussions, participants will identify the characteristics of workplace bullying. Mental health professionals will learn how to differentiate between workplace bulling and a negative work environment.

Participants will learn various ways to help victims of workplace bullying in the counseling setting as well as how to assist organizations in handling this problem. (Trainer: Deidra A. Sorrell, Ed.D., NCC, LPC, LCPC, ACS)


Class 2 – 2:00pm – 5:00pm (3 CEUs – Ethics)

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.  (Trainer, Keisha Atlee, LCSW-C)
