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

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

    Speaker

    Mary Ruffolo, PhD, LMSW

    Agenda

    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

    Description

    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.

  2. Alumni Webinar Series: Building a Culture of Philanthropy »

    May 16, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    Non-profit organizations have the unique opportunity to fund programmatic, capital, and endowment projects through well-conceived philanthropy, and most require some level of donated funds to successfully meet their mission. Truly successful fundraising is achieved when a strong culture of philanthropy is in place. In these non-profits, everyone, including volunteer leadership, assumes responsibility for philanthropy and understands the important role they play in making it happen. Even when the organization has full-time, dedicated fundraising staff, no one is exempt. There are key elements that need to be securely in place for sustainable fundraising success within an organization. This presentation will define these elements, describe their importance, and demonstrate how participants can measure each element within their own organization. Note: This webinar is free for U-M SSW alumni.

  5. Cultural Issues with Opioid Use Disorders/Substance Use Disorders »

    May 17, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

    This course will address the cultural issues, barriers, strengths and needs that may arise in substance use treatment settings. Students will gain a theoretical understanding of cultural competence models and related clinical applications in assessment and intervention. Students will gain an understanding of the potential strengths and limitations of implementation methods for cultural competence in SUD/OUD practice and will engage in a critical analysis of the available literature. Students will review epidemiological data specific to the prevalence of SUD/OUD and utilization trends for diverse cultural and identity groups. Concepts relating to race, ethnicity, racial and intergenerational trauma and the clinical relevance to SUD/OUD will be discussed. Specific manifestations of culture and sub-culture arise in the context of substance use disorders (e.g. spirituality, ritual, symbolism, language, art, music, dance, dress, politics and literature); specialized attention to the impact of these identities and evidence-based treatment strategies to navigating SUD-specific sub-cultures, will be reviewed. Student will acquire a series of generalizable self-assessment, and organizational assessment and intervention tools that can be applied flexibly to address cultural needs across a myriad of clinical contexts aimed at addressing substance use and opioid use disorder. Students will also gain knowledge and examples of culture-specific interventions, and how inclusion of one's culture in treatment can improve accessibility, retention and outcomes for individuals in substance use treatment. Cultural and linguistic barriers will be addressed with specific attention to culturally accessible treatment for opioid use disorder. Students will develop an understanding of the unique impact of culture within substance use treatment contexts. Students will gain knowledge and skills relating to the application of evidence-based strategies to improve cultural competence in SUD/OUD practice settings.

  6. Working with Transitional Age Youth with Behavioral Health Conditions »

    May 17, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

    Transitional age youth, defined as the transition period from adolescence to young adulthood, represents a developmental periods characterized by, among other things, increased risk taking and vulnerability for behavioral and mental health conditions. Yet the social work theoretical, empirical and practice literature remain underdeveloped, particularly for transitional age youth with behavioral health and mental health conditions. Social work practitioners and researchers alike play an essential role in ameliorating behavioral health conditions among transitional age youth. This course focuses on the state of the science when working with transitional age youth with behavioral health conditions. Students in this course will acquire a general understanding of (1) the prevalence and variations of behavioral health conditions among this overlooked and vulnerable population, (2) etiological factors associated with behavioral health conditions, (3) theoretical frameworks to inform practice with transitional age youth, and (4) best programs and practices when working with transitional age youth.

  7. Non-Monogamy and Kink 101: An Overview for Clinicians »

    May 17, 2019 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

    Learn about the basics of kink play, how consent is discussed and negotiated, the difference between all the terms, and what it means to be in a 24-7 relationship. Understand the differences between fantasy (like 50 Shades of Grey) and reality, and how to support your clients/patients in their kink practices. There will also be a basic training on the basic types of consensually non-monogamous relationships that people have in their lives, how to support individuals in discussing these with frameworks with clients, and more. We'll talk about polyamory/non-monogamy -- various facets, how to get into it, and most importantly, how to help make it work when there are more than two people involved. Whether you're looking to learn something new, or just to add some knowledge to support your therapeutic or medical practice, this is a great overview for anyone. This course offers 2 AASECT continuing education hours and is available at a discount to alumni of the Sexual Health Certificate Program.

  10. Non-Violent Communication: Restorative Practice in Conflict Mediation Series »

    May 20, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    In this workshop series, Carrie Landrum, Assistant Director of the Office of Student Conflict Resolution, and Dillon Cathro, MSW'19 candidate, will be exploring a very helpful communication technique that many facilitators, counselors, and educators find invaluable: the Non-Violent Communication (NVC) process developed by Marshall Rosenberg. We will also be exploring intercultural conflict styles to normalize and legitimize the many varied ways that humans may engage through conflict.  As social workers, we may unconsciously impose our cultural norms on others when we ask that others engage in ways that we believe to be superior or "best." To ensure we engage with others non-violently, these sessions will encourage social work students to recognize the ways in which we may unconsciously be imposing dominant norms on others, and give students the skills needed to mitigate those unconscious biases, in the midst of conflict. Lunch will be provided.
