  3. Behavioral or "Process" Addictions

    For the majority of time that addiction treatment has been available in the United States, the focus has been on the destructive misuse of alcohol &/or other chemical substances. However such "process addictions" as gambling, compulsive sexual behavior, and an increasing variety of internet-related pursuits have gained increasing amounts of attention, as unchecked involvement has led to negative outcomes that have impaired quality-of-life and crippled level-of-functioning for many. This webinar will discuss cross-cutting elements found to be common to all forms of chemical and behavioral addiction, as well as reviewing existing recovery resources and further implications for treatment & recovery.

    Objectives

    • Outline six elements of a working definition of addiction with cross-cutting application to chemical and behavioral manifestations.
    • Distinguish between gambling, compulsive sexual behaviors, and problematic internet-related behaviors, and identify three treatment approaches that hold promise for effective treatment across these target areas.

  4. Sexy Spoonies and Crip Sex: Intersections of Sexuality and Disability

    Over a quarter of adults identify as having a disability, impairment, or chronic illness, and many others will experience this short term, or as they age. While society often perpetuates the ableist idea that disabled individuals and people with impairments are simply not sexual, nothing could be further from reality. This workshop covers issues around the intersection of disability and sexuality, such as coming out to/discussing a disabled identity with a partner(s), how to discuss disability needs around sex (including sex toys, working with PCAs, etc.), new things to try and creative ways to so, use of sex workers and sex surrogates, correct and accurate terminology, negotiating sex play (including kink/BDSM play), and other topics on this subject.

    This course is approved for 2 AASECT CE hours.

    Objectives

    • Describe how disability and ableism can affect individuals and partners/groups regarding emotional and sexual relationships.
    • Identify resources that can be used to create more supportive and fulfilling sexual options for disabled adults, including erotica, pornography, and sex toys.

  6. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis

    Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental illness affecting roughly 26 million people, equating to 1% of the global population. Psychosis is experienced within schizophrenia spectrum or other psychotic disorders in addition to several other disorders, often framed as being 'psychotic features.'

  7. When Self-Care Isn't Enough... Restorative Care

    In this course, self-care will be redefined to a more comprehensive term, "restorative care." Participants will learn how restorative care differs from the hackneyed self-care term, which has lost its meaning. Participants will learn how this loss in meaning can lead to a loss in self-care practice, which is vital for social workers to maintain good mental health. Thus, restorative care will be defined and students will learn practical strategies to incorporate restorative care practices to facilitate restoration, healing, rejuvenation and balance as a social worker. This is especially for social workers experiencing secondary-trauma, overwork, community stressors and are in danger of burn-out.

    Objectives

    • Differentiate between the need for restorative care versus the need for clinical intervention by a mental health professional.
    • Describe the complex array of needs and contextual variables that would inform what would be the most relevant practice.
    • Describe restorative care practices and strategies.

  8. Delivering Social Justice Oriented Private Outpatient Behavioral Health Services (Part 1) - Foundation

    This workshop is part one of a four-part series on social justice oriented approaches to offering private behavioral health services in a private practice setting. This section outlines the basic knowledge foundation social workers need to prepare to offer private outpatient behavioral health services. While we encourage participants to complete all four parts, you may also select those that best fit your needs and schedule.

    This series will provide a foundational understanding of private and public behavioral health services so that participants are able to identify the skills needed to deliver outpatient services as a clinician with a social justice orientation. With increased access to behavioral health services through policies such as Health Care Parity and the Affordable Care Act, more community members with mild to moderate need for behavioral health services are seeking care and there is a greater need for non-public behavioral health care providers who deliver culturally-responsive and socially-just services.
