Ethics and Risk Management for Online and Distance Social Work: Best Practices-WEB

ID: 1047WEB

It is essential for social workers to keep pace with rapidly evolving ethical and legal standards governing online and distance practice. This webinar will provide an up-to-the-minute overview of prevailing standards in social work. Dr. Frederic Reamer will discuss recent technology-related updates to the NASW Code of Ethics; new technology standards adopted jointly by the NASW, ASWB, CSWE, and Clinical Social Work Association; and relevant laws.

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! Balancing Individuality & Togetherness in Key Relationships-WEB

ID: 5465WEB

Bowen family systems theory postulates that among the biologically-rooted drives within an organism, there are competing forces for individuality and togetherness. It is these forces that govern emotional transactions in all relationships. These counterbalancing life forces shift the locus of control for behavior from the individual to the emotional system. What transpires in the emotional system impacts the interplay of feeling and thinking in the individual which has a direct effect on his or her relationships. Increased chronic anxiety can result in an individuals' feelings overwhelming their intellectual system which leads to a drive for togetherness overwhelming their individuality in that emotional system. This workshop demonstrates how understanding the effects of chronic anxiety on individuality-togetherness balances can enhance one's functioning in various emotional systems.

The Therapeutic Dance: Keeping One Eye on the Client and One Eye on Ourselves-WEB

ID: 1015WEB

As the pandemic continues and helping professionals experience their own trauma and the cumulative trauma of the clients they serve, it is more important than ever to become aware of how our own experiences and traumas affect our relationships with clients. This webinar will provide a review of attachment theory and the prevalence of traumatic transference when working with trauma survivors. Participants will have the opportunity to examine how their own attachment style affects their approach with clients. The concepts of empathic disequilibrium, empathic withdrawal, empathic enmeshment and empathic repression will be reviewed and discussed. Strategies for promoting self-awareness and self-care will be presented. When we do not care for ourselves or keep an eye on the therapeutic dance with clients, the likelihood of burnout, vicarious traumatization and empathic strain are real dangers for the health and well -being of the helper and the therapeutic relationship.
