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

    May 1, 2020 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    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.

  7. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Suicide Prevention

    May 7, 2020 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

    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 knowledge and skills are in place for our work with clients with the ultimate goal being to prevent premature suicidal death. Cognitive-behavioral therapy for suicide prevention is an evidence-based intervention is a valuable and effective approach to use in practice for individuals experiencing suicidal ideation and/or whom have made an attempt.

    This workshop will discuss suicide as public health issue in the US, suicide risk assessment, a brief overview of CBT theory and basics, and a central focus on intervention using CBT for suicide prevention.

  8. ENGAGE Community Volunteer Discussion: Sarah Teare, Community Development Director at Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley ENGAGE Community Volunteer Discussion: Sarah Teare, Community Development Director at Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley

    May 7, 2020 - 12:00pm

    Join ENGAGE and the Office of Field Education for a virtual discussion this Thursday, May 7th, at 12 pm, featuring Sarah Teare, Community Development Director of Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley. Teare will be discussing Habitat's response to Ypsilanti community needs, how neighborhoods create supportive systems during times of crisis, and how students can join Habitat for Humanity's efforts. Attending this session will count towards field credit.

    During times of uncertainty and crisis, people come together to support one another. COVID-19 is a new test of our collective strength. The Community Engagement team and the Office of Field Education have created a webpage that includes a list of volunteer opportunities to support community members and organizations as well as additional resources. In addition, the team is hosting conversations about volunteering during the pandemic.

    “Coming together like this provides a teachable moment.  When there is a difficult or emergency situation, we can work together to share resources and come up with answers.  No one person has to figure everything out on their own. The COVID-19 virus has brought lots of uncertainty, but the School of Social Work community can do its part to uncover and respond to needs as they arise,” said Professor and Director of Community Engagement Trina Shanks.
