  1. 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.

  10. Social Work Practice in Rural Settings »

    May 31, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

    This minicourse will examine practice theory and techniques relevant to social work in a rural setting. There are many definitions of what might be considered a rural community. For the purposes of this course, we will define communities as rural that have a population size of 2,500 to 20,000 with no major metropolitan area within hour of the community. Rural communities are often plagued with similar problems as vast metropolitan areas such as high poverty rates, inadequate housing, and inadequate access to health care. However, the scarcity of resources and professionals including medical providers, socioeconomic underdevelopment, and physical distance from services and lack of public transportation are frequently identified as compounding factors of living in a rural community. The impact of differences in the key diversity dimensions such as ability, age, class, color, culture, ethnicity, family structure, gender (including gender identity and gender expression) marital status, national origin, race, religion or spirituality, sex, and sexual orientation will be examined, within the context of practicing in a rural community. This course will also emphasize issues of ethical practice as defined by the social work code of ethics within a rural community.

    Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
