  1. Evidence-based Parenting Interventions to Help Parents Reduce the Use of Physical Punishment

    This course focuses on an issue that many social workers confront in their practice with children and families - the use of discipline and physical punishment in childrearing. This course examines research on the effectiveness of a wide range of parental disciplinary approaches. This course introduces a series of evidence-based parenting interventions, and discusses how these interventions approach parents' beliefs and behaviors related to child discipline. We will discuss how cultural norms and beliefs may influence parents' discipline choices, and how social workers can engage in productive dialogue with parents to help parents achieve their parenting aims. Content of this course is based on the book published by the instructor titled "Ending the physical punishment of children: A guide for clinicians and practitioners."

  2. The Calm After the Storm: Exploring How Our Nervous Systems Cope with the Pandemic, and How We Move Forward

    This workshop will discuss the biological responses to the elevated stress that is a result of the covid-19 pandemic and other collective traumas. We will discuss different coping strategies and why some members of the community were able to manage better than others.

    A portion of the workshop will be devoted to discussing collective and cumulative trauma and how both can activate our threat response cycle. We will discuss how these invisible triggers affect our community, and how to identify and manage the feelings that arise in ourselves, our students, our clients, and/or our families as a response to global events. We will also spend time discussing techniques for self-regulation, and moving forward in a (post)pandemic world.
    Disclaimer: Please be advised that in this workshop, we will be discussing difficult subject matter.

  3. Suicide Risk Assessment and Safety Planning

    Suicide is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States and worldwide. Nearly 50% of individuals who end life by suicide see a primary care provider within a month of death, yet suicide risk assessment and treatment is consistently difficult in practice. With the majority of mental health services in the US being delivered by social workers, it is imperative that risk assessment and safety planning knowledge and skills are in place for our work with clients with the ultimate goal being to prevent premature suicidal death.

    This webinar will discuss and present on suicide as public health issue in the US, risk and protective factors, warning signs, barriers to help-seeking, risk assessment process and risk formulation, safety planning, and cultural humility in risk assessment with use of a clinical case. This workshop is also focused on the adult population.
