SOCIAL WORK

Social work is the helping profession. And as a profession, social workers are a privileged group—being predominantly white and holding higher educational degrees. The social work system holds a significant amount of power and control over individuals’ lives and unexamined privilege can present as a barrier to the pursuit of social justice and equity. This session explores the systems of power and privilege embedded in the social work system and identifies how social workers can push against the systems in which they benefit.

Becoming and Being Competent in Providing Trauma-specific Treatment #209-22 The NASW Code of Ethics addresses competence as a general standard for practice throughout the Code of Ethics. Increasingly, social workers are encountering individuals and families who live with active traumatic stressors, irrespective of their professional training. At the same time, the term “trauma” is used ubiquitously to refer to a wide range of stress responses. In this course we will examine a developmental model of competency to aid practitioners in understanding the difference between generalist practice social work, trauma-informed practice, and trauma-specific treatment. This developmental model will aid practitioners in developing a plan of action that is designed to support professional growth towards being a competent provider of trauma-specific treatment, as guided by the Code of Ethics.

CLINICAL PRACTICE Pain Symptoms as Messengers: Listening to the Body as a Pathway to Self-care #502-22

This course explores physical pain symptoms as bodily messengers that can help individuals understand and manage pain sensations by using mindfulness strategies. The unpleasant nature of pain symptoms generally lead to difficult emotions, which can then generate more pain. When this cycle of pain symptoms goes unnoticed or unaddressed, the cumulative effect can lead to more serious physical and mental health problems. In this course participants will learn a body-sensing approach that differentiates emotions from physical feelings or sensations. The course includes experiential exercises so that participants will have the opportunity to practice the skills taught.

A way to view trauma is that it is a shift in life without explanation. The shift(s) happens and the expectation is to just live on, or at least that’s what everyone else is doing. This community-building opportunity seeks to normalize trauma and share helpful avenues of caring for ourselves and others . Diagnostically speaking, trauma is cynical and itemized. Clinically speaking, trauma is scary, powerful, intense. According to those impacted, trauma appears and wears a spectrum of dress and expression. Let’s get acquainted!

LEADERSHIP Ethics, Leadership, Pragmatism, and the Common Good

As social workers assume roles of leadership—whether formally or informally—leading social or organizational change or fostering social or organizational stability, they must do so with a clear understanding of ethics and a rich set of concepts, skills, and tools. Especially in times of uncertainty and conflict such as these, this vital set of resources (many of which are drawn from social work, many from other fields) are essential to achieving outcomes that improve the common good and empower the marginalized all while ensuring integrity in methods and outcomes by remaining grounded in a firm set of ethics.



Drawing on some of the best writing and thinking in the fields of social work, leadership, social and organizational change, and ethics, this series provides participants with the concepts and tools necessary for effective ethical leadership, management, and change agentry.

The Reign of Pain (Part 1): Emerging Concepts in the Role of the Brain in the Construction of Pain

#350-22 Recorded on March 8, 2018

Not all injuries cause pain, and not all pain is due to injuries. An explosion of brain research demonstrates that all pain is constructed by the brain as a danger/alarm function. It is imperative to distinguish pain caused by structural disorders from pain caused by neural pathways in the brain. Appropriate treatment of pain is guided by this distinction with the goal of resolution of pain for individuals with neural pathway-induced pain. SOCIAL WORK

As a leader in a child and family service agency, it is crucial to recruit, select, and retain the right staff to do the job. Attaining positive outcomes for children and families is a main priority for service leaders. It is very difficult to succeed in this area without a qualified and committed workforce. This course has been developed for child and family service leaders and anyone who aspires to have a leadership role in a child and family service agency. Topics such as leadership models for staff retention; leaders and relationships; developing a leadership team; staff development; mission and direction; salaries, benefits, and non-monetary rewards; accountability and outcomes; as well as developing a culture for staff retention will be covered.

This online course will help you focus on working with issues of staff diversity in child and family agencies. As child and family service agencies move toward developing staff that are responsive to the diverse needs of their clientele, as a supervisor you will need to be able to maximize staff capabilities with an eye toward retaining trained and experienced staff. Diversity in child and family services means meeting the needs of families and children being served as well as the diverse staff working with them. Working with difference means that you will need to be self-aware, flexible, and have a desire to broaden your repertoire of responses to ever-changing situations and people coming from a wide variety of cultural contexts.

Recruiting and Selecting the Right Staff #303-22 2 CECHs

Having the right people in the right positions is a critical success factor for child and family agencies where the future lives of children and families are at stake. Having the capacity and the skill to hire good people effectively and efficiently must be a leadership priority. In this self-study course, you will learn about five elements of recruiting and selecting the right staff. You will also have an opportunity to explore a six-step process for recruiting staff with an eye to retention.

The First Six Months #302-22 2 CECHs

This online course will help you understand and effectively deal with a staff person’s first six months on the job. As research indicates, the first six months for a new employee is the most vital as it applies to staff turnover. By focusing on the first six months, you will have an opportunity to sharpen and practice your retention skills through the use of a structured format designed to orient and develop skills in new staff. Lessons learned from this program can also help you to focus your supervision and agency practices on valuing and retaining experienced staff.
