  2. Dan Robin: Master Talk  »

    September 18, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    A social entrepreneur's approach to reducing the unemployment rate for people with disabilities

    How the role of social work can close the gap. Despite representing 20% of the population, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities (PWD) has gone virtually unchanged for 40 years, remaining at twice that when compared to people without disabilities. This talk will seek to understand where policies, systems, organizations, funding, and advocates have fallen short while highlighting the common denominators within models necessary for the next stage of evolution. The ability of social workers to maintain a duality, i.e. creating a culture of caring and service across both their clients and industry is imperative. Closing the gap requires social workers to build on their strengths by identifying and negotiating needs between 'supply' (PWD) and 'demand' (Industry).

  8. Social Work with Military Service Members, Veterans and their Families »

    September 20, 2017 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

    This course was designed to increase the knowledge base and competency level of social workers who plan to work with (or are interested in) military service members, veterans and their families. This will be accomplished by introducing participants to basic military background and structure, the common problem-areas experienced by this community, and the diverse sub-groups that exist within this unique population.

    The content covered in this course will include subject areas such as military culture, trauma, life after service (transition), problems/issues faced by family members and the study of specific populations within the service such as women, other minorities, and the LGBT population. In addition to improving the cultural competency in the areas listed above, students will also be exposed to the diverse and unique challenges faced by the veterans of different war eras (WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War and current conflicts). Time will also be spent discussing the kinds of clinical skills that are important for social workers to possess when working with this population.

    Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.

  10. Language Interpretation in Social Work Practice »

    September 22, 2017 - 8:30am to 2:00pm

    This professional development workshop will help students and professional social workers learn and appreciate the role of language in social work practice. All social workers, monolingual and multilingual alike, perform the role of language interpreter (and/or translator) in practice. Ensuring diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in practice calls for methods, philosophies, and tools that can allow us to build relationships across class, gender, immigration status, sexuality, language and race. Interpretation- facilitating communication across lines that might otherwise divide communities is essential to working towards our commitment to DE&I. Participants will learn methods and strategies for interpretation with special attention to the potential for power imbalances that influence the way in which communication is mediated through an interpreter.
