  1. Emotional Pain: Navigating Suicidal Behaviors in Clinical Practice »

    March 1, 2019 - 9:00am to 12:15pm

    Suicide is a significant public health issue. Suicide is the leading cause of death for youth and young adults from ages 10 - 24. Many social workers engaged in clinical practice have encountered patients who have a history or current presenting issue of suicidal ideation - some with a plan and intent to die. Social workers have long been required to assess the severity of a patient's suicidal behaviors and depressive symptoms. Emotional pain is identified as a core clinical factor for understanding suicide during the assessment and intervention process (Verrocchio et. al, 2016). This workshop will give special attention how cultural connectivity, attachment styles, traumatic events and substance use impact a patient's experiences of emotional pain influence suicidal behaviors over the lifespan.

  2. Treating with Equity: LGBTQIA+ Inclusivity in Healthcare (Webinar) »

    March 1, 2019 - 12:30pm to 2:30pm

    Doctors, nurses, psychologists, physical therapists, front office staff, and everyone else in the medical field interact with members of the LGBTQIA+ community on a regular basis, yet members of this community are more likely to be refused health care, be blamed for their medical issues due to their identities, and often choose to avoid health care settings due to these issues. This workshop supports providers on how to make health care settings more inclusive, providing training on the language relating to the LGBTQIA+ community, and help medical professionals optimize their workplaces into somewhere welcoming to all those needing health care.
