  1. Ethical Considerations with Caring for Aging Parents and Elder Abuse

    December 6, 2024 - 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM ET

    As our population continues to age, it is important that social workers have a good understanding of what caring for an aging parent looks like, who a family caregiver is, and what are some of the tasks of caring for an aging parent. All of us will, at some point, be in the position of caring for an aging parent, if we have not, already, or will have a client who is in this role. The workshop will also provide an overview of what elder abuse is and who is considered an older adult. In addition, the NASW Code of Ethics and the NASW Standards of Practice for Social Work Practice with Family Caregivers of Older Adults will be woven throughout the workshop.

  2. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for the Queer Community

    December 13, 2024 - 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET

    This course will focus on the usage of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) with the Queer community in addressing mental health concerns. The Queer community experiences a large amount of discrimination, both on a micro and macro lens that leads to ongoing stressors. These stressors and environmental factors lead to a higher prevalence rate of mental illness within the Queer community. DBT, an evidence-based psychotherapy, has been shown to be beneficial for overall mental health, addressing self-injurious behaviors, emotional challenges, Major Depressive Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This course will address how to apply and use DBT with clients from the LGBTQIA2S+ community in an affirming and validating way.

    This course will cover Minority Stress Theory, and Biosocial Theory as well as review and introduce skills from the 4 core modules of DBT, mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and effective communication.
