  7. Working with Latino Families »

    May 15, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

    Latinos constitute the largest ethnic minority group in the United States. The United States Latino population is immensely diverse, with members originating from over twenty countries. Latino sub-populations tend to reside in different areas of the United States, have different cultural practices/norms, immigration experiences, and varying levels of economic attainment. These sources of internal variation are important, as they have implications for many social outcomes and social work practice with Latino families. This mini course focuses on the theoretical, empirical and practice literature on Latino families in the United States. The mini course will allow for students to become familiar with demographic trends, health disparities, acculturation and acculturative stress, and the current debates surrounding the immigrant health paradox. Additionally, this mini course will cover key methodological approaches aimed at engaging Latino families in mental health and health care services, as well as barriers and facilitators to mental health and health care utilization. Furthermore, the course focuses on clinical aspects of working with Latino families, including but not limited to, culturally congruent assessment, and prevention and treatment models. Students in this course will acquire a general understanding of (1) the demographic, social and political background of Latino families in the United States, (2) key theoretical frameworks to consider (e.g., acculturative stress) when working with Latino families, (3) culturally congruent assessment, prevention and treatment approaches for health and well-being, and (3) acquire a general understanding of clinical aspects when working with Latino families in the United States.

  8. Enhancing Social Work Instruction: Using Online Simulations and Role Plays »

    May 16, 2019 - 9:00am to 11:00amCancelled


    Mary Ruffolo, PhD, LMSW


    9-9:30am | Overview: Supervision and the Use of Simulations and Role Play

    9:30-10am | How Faculty can Use Simulations with Students in Class

    10-10:30am | Maximizing Instruction Benefits in Using Simulations

    10:30-11am | Practicum: Try it Out


    Join the Field Office and the Associate Dean for Educational Programs to learn more about how instructors for the U-M SSW can utilize online simulations for both their own practice as well as how to use with students. The U-M SSW has given students and instructors access to simulations in the last year, and these simulations are valuable tools for practicing a multitude of intervention techniques. Simulations help students to learn the technique and then practice it in a virtual setting - all before having to use them with real-world clients. This helps students learn many challenges of therapy and make mistakes with a virtual client before working with clients in the field. We will show instructors what these simulations look like, how students should use them, how they can incorporate them in class, and then give time to practice the simulations.

    Learning Objectives

    Describe different methods of teaching when using simulations in class.

    Apply knowledge of simulations and how they work during class with students.

  9. Spirituality: Assessment and Intervention in Social Work Practice »

    May 16, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

    This minicourse will explore contemporary issues in spirituality and social work focused on what it means to competently integrate spirituality into one's social work practice. In adopting a holistic perspective to guide practice, spirituality will be viewed as a vital and essential dimension in the biopsychosocial assessment and treatment planning process. This course will explore the rationale and need to integrate assessment and interventions related to spirituality in social work in a manner that supports cultural humility and competent practice. It will examine spirituality as rooted in the history of social work practice as well as exploring how to best define, integrate, and use spiritual assessment and interventions in addressing presenting client issues in clinical setting today. The relationship between spirituality and issues of race, gender and social class as well as spirituality across the life cycle will be addressed. Specific methods and interventions will be highlighted and applied to practice with a variety of client populations. Relevant readings, discussion, case presentations, and experiential exercises will be used to deepen one's competence and comfort level with spirituality in social work practice.
