The objective of this training is to help mental health professionals develop confidence and a skill set for discussing sexual identity, health/wellness, and intimacy with their clients. Fundamentals of sex therapy from a biopsychosocial approach will be covered to ensure that participants feel well-equipped to incorporate sexual functioning into their core approach to assessment and treatment. The learner will understand the ramifications of relegating this topic to a "specialized" treatment approach and feel skilled and capable in addressing sex therapy topics as a foundational approach to assessment and treatment.

Part 1: This program area will welcome participants to the MMR CE program and introduce mixed methods research to them. Research ethics and values are important for the responsible conduct of research and so in the components of this program area, participants will learn about the nature of research ethics as it pertains to macro social work and other applied professions. We will begin with a history of research ethics with topics ranging from the Nuremberg Code and the Belmont Report, to the U.S. Public Health Service syphilis study carried out in Tuskegee, Alabama. Next, we will briefly cover theoretical frameworks and the advantages of using theory for mixed methods research and practice in social work. Participants will be challenged to view the research process through a culturally sensitive lens. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to think about the implications for how the research we conduct with underserved and underrepresented groups influences what we learn from these groups...

Currently, there is limited specialized training available for practitioners regarding suicide prevention. Practitioners including frontline interprofessional responders (community first responders, medical providers, mental health and public health practitioners) as well as administrators and leaders (school principals, medical directors, tribal and community leaders) are individually and collectively critical for preventative and health promotion efforts. This 4-hour interactive workshop provides a unique opportunity for participants to explore evidence-based approaches to suicide prevention across the spectrum from universal approaches to selective strategies, including postvention to reduce risk in the aftermath of a suicide. The workshop will highlight considerations for collaborative intervention at multiple-micro, mezzo and macro-levels and across disciplines or roles. The workshop will use interactive learning, application to case studies and interprofessional dialogue to translate knowledge and...

Understanding and supporting athletes and their overall health and welfare has been a prominent specialty service area that social workers have formally and informally navigated for decades. And today, the need for sports social workers with advanced training has never been more requested across sport settings (youth, collegiate, professional, and geriatric). Research currently suggests that: (1) athletes engage in sport across the lifespan to foster a greater sense of belonging and social connection; (2) athlete mental health needs are increasing and licensed, mental health providers are needed to meet this growing demand; and (3) athletes are using their platform to address social injustices and bring awareness to long-standing disparities across our country. As established agents of change, social workers uphold the profession's mission and core values, while having an expansive scope of practice to improve outcomes for individuals, communities, and the larger society...
