Beyond Checking and Washing: Understanding and Treating the Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum

ID: 5056WEB

Once thought to be a rare psychiatric illness, obsessive-compulsive disorder is now recognized to be quite common as 2-3 million Americans are believed to have it. Although they are not as well known as OCD, several other disorders share significant characteristics with it, and are now considered as part of the obsessive-compulsive spectrum. These include body dysmorphic disorder, illness anxiety disorder, hoarding disorder, trichotillomania, and excoriation disorder. The primary purpose of this webinar is to familiarize attendees with the various diagnoses on the spectrum, to review cognitive and behavioral manifestations of each, and to thoroughly explore forms of treatment.

Reproductive Justice: What Social Workers Need to Know

ID: 4233WEB

As assaults on reproductive health continue across the country, the time is now for social workers to learn about the tenets of Reproductive Justice (RJ). A framework developed by minoritized groups in the 1990s, RJ moves the abortion discourse beyond “choice” and considers the elements that contribute to or hinder true bodily autonomy: the right to have a child, the right to not have a child, and the right raise a child in safe and healthy environments. As RJ especially considers the impact of legislation, policy, and intervention on vulnerable communities, it is especially relevant during today’s socio-political climate. This course will introduce, define, and explore the tenets of RJ and how they directly apply to social work advocacy and practice. Concrete suggestions for advocacy and intervention will also be provided.

This is a Time of Suffering: Comforting Ourselves through Self-Compassion

ID: 4183WEB

There is no denying that this time in our history is one of the most stressful in our lifetime. Prolonged exposure to stress is scientifically proven to be detrimental to our physical and emotional health. It is more important now than ever to understand the power of self-acceptance and self-compassion in buffering the stress response and the psychological and physiological impact it has on our health. Neuroscientists have proven that critical self-talk is perceived by the brain as a threat to our survival and generates a similar stress response to an external traumatic event. These webinars will allow participants to assess their own level of self-compassion. This webinar will discuss the definition and elements of self-compassion, the stages of self-compassion and obstacles to self-compassion. Also, this will is primarily experiential and will introduce participants to a variety of self-compassion exercises that they can easily practice themselves or teach to their clients.
