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

NASWDC Chapter 0 396

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.

"Help, I'm Stuck on This Case!": Group Consultation Sessions with Trauma Expert Dr. Debi Grebenik

Virtual Training Class

NASWDC Chapter 0 132

Individual outpatient practice can be challenging, and often lonely. We've all felt stuck before, particularly when working with clients who have challenging needs and don't respond well to traditional psychotherapy methods. When we encounter these roadblocks, it can be difficult to figure out how to move forward and provide the best client care. Clinical supervision can help, but one-on-one supervision for licensed professionals can often be costly and time-consuming. 

This is where group consultation sessions can be beneficial. In our new group consultation sessions, trauma expert Dr. Debi Grebenik will give you the opportunity to discuss your adult clients with challenging intervention needs. Often these clients have experienced complex forms of trauma, and Dr. Grebenik will use her decades of experience studying trauma-informed care and evidence-based interventions to offer you new strategies that can help these clients transform their lives.

Working with Clients with Religious/Spiritual Abuse

Virtual Training Class

NASWDC Chapter 0 187

Spiritual abuse, a form of coercion and control within a spiritual context, inflicts deep emotional wounds on victims. This workshop delves into the manifestations of spiritual abuse, including manipulation, enforced accountability, censorship, secrecy, and pressure to conform. Participants will learn how abusers misuse scripture and religious authority, coupled with claims of divine mandate, to dominate victims. The workshop also addresses the isolation victims often face and offers strategies for clinicians to identify and support those affected. By recognizing signs of spiritual abuse, clinicians can play a crucial role in promoting healing and preventing further harm.
