Ethics -- 8:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Supervision -- 1:30 p.m. - 5 p.m.
The ethics workshop will identify and analyze frequent professional and popular beliefs about human nature and the personal and societal factors that influence a client’s direction in life. Based on that analysis we will discuss the characteristics of an ethical and effective social worker and the ethical dilemmas they often face. We will then explore ethical behavior in a therapeutic relationship and apply those concepts to case scenarios with course participants’ direct involvement.
The supervision workshop will identify and analyze the professional concepts and functions critical to effective clinical supervision for social workers. Various aspects of supervision perspectives will be explored. This workshop will address supervision, diversity, and cultural dynamics factors that supervisees and supervisors face. We will present a six-stage model of supervising social workers in the development of assessments and other evaluation tools. Participants will have the opportunity to apply the concepts presented in these workshops to case scenarios as the final part of the workshop.
