A framework for working with survivors of sexual violence

NASWDC Chapter 0 505

Course Description:

RAINN estimates that in the United States, someone experiences sexual violence every 68 seconds. This means that regardless of setting or practice type, social workers will encounter and work with survivors of sexual violence. It is vital that social workers feel equipped to support survivors no matter where the survivor is on their healing journey. In this workshop, participants will learn the research, theoretical and practical framework for sexual trauma, and evidenced based practices to ensure survivors receive appropriate support. 



Learning Objectives:

“Am I Doing This Right?”: Peer Support for Supervisors

NASWDC Chapter 0 272

Oftentimes after members take our popular Foundations of Supervision course and begin supervising LCSW candidates, new questions come up.  

  • Am I doing this right? 
  • How do I navigate differences in opinion when my supervisee and I practice different modalities? 
  • What if my supervisee and I disagree on an approach due to our cultural differences? 

These types of questions are common, but also nuanced. Insight from one of our instructors and a group of your fellow supervisors can help. That’s why we developed our free, members-only “Peer Support for Supervisors” sessions. 

For these 1-1.5 hour-sessions, the instructor will select a general topic area to focus on and then solicit questions from registered participants prior to the session. The instructor will then use these pre-submitted questions to guide the session and lead the discussion.   

On January 16, the general topic area will be balancing emotional and educational support for supervisees. Please include your questions/scenarios around this topic in your registration. 

 

Supervisors will earn 1 Category I Contact Hour. 

Supervision: Foundations of Supervision (Feb 23-24)

NASWDC Chapter 0 434

This course fulfills the training requirement mandated by the Virginia Board of Social Work to provide clinical supervision for LCSW candidates. The Virginia Board of Counseling updated their regulations for LPC and LMFT licensure, however, now stating: 

  • For LPC and LMFT licensure, your supervisor must hold an active, unrestricted license as a LPC or LMFT only, in the jurisdiction where the supervision is being provided. At least 100 of the supervision hours must be supervised by a LPC. **Previously approved supervisors who are substance abuse treatment practitioners, school psychologists, clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, or psychiatrists can provide supervision until August 24, 2017. 

Ethics and Boundaries: Leveraging Cultural Humility to Recognize Bias and Remove the Disguise

NASWDC Chapter 0 447

Description:
Do you know me?  How can I trust that you are someone that understands me, my culture, and will speak to the needs of diversity, equity, and inclusion when asked? Emotions impact the decisions we make, including the ‘good’, the ‘bad’, and the ‘ugly’ influencers that rest in the deep areas of our mind: heuristics. We say we are not biased individuals but the reality; our underlying thoughts and emotions are based on preconceptions and lived experience. Participants will engage in self-reflective activities related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, different abilities, and intersectionality.  Oppression, discrimination, power and control, and historical and structural racism, and privilege will be featured as it relates to the helping professions. We will take a deep dive into the cognitive biases that are subconsciously impacting your decision making, your role as a helper, and may be disguising your awareness, discernment, and your perceptions when making the best decisions. We will explore how these biases affect your personal relationships, judgments regarding equity, diversity, and inclusion, and the day-to-day responses in working with others. Let's take a journey to provide clarity; removing the bias within your frame of reference. Use of group discussions and personal reflection will foster understanding of ethical, reflective practice with clients, personal diversity, and skill level in cultural humility, and increasing knowledge of diverse cultures within the helping professions.

 

Upon completion of this course attendees will earn 6 Category I Contact Hours, including 6 Ethics Hours.
