Developing Cultural Competence in a Multicultural Society

ID: 4951WEB

Commitment to cultural competence is growing among healthcare professionals and providers. This webinar will explore cultural competence from a global perspective and demonstrate how all healthcare professionals, specifically social workers, care managers and mental health professionals, can infuse cultural competence into their practice. The webinar will also challenge our ability to embrace cultural humility. While continuing on the journey toward cultural competence, healthcare professionals must embrace the ongoing process of self-exploration and self-critique combined with a willingness to learn from others.

How to Deal with Trauma Anniversaries: Shootings, Deaths, Suicides and Pandemics

ID: 4260WEB

This webinar is designed to deal with the reality that traumatic events do not disappear with the passage of time and the original trauma can be retriggered by anniversaries. We need quality ways in which to deal with trauma anniversaries that recognize their power and do not exacerbate the trauma symptoms evoked. This webinar will provide concrete examples of effective strategies for remembering traumas among individuals, families, communities and organizations. The examples will address the reality that anniversaries affect and must be remembered differently among children and adults, those located near and far during and after the original trauma, and those with other intervening trauma triggering experiences. We will also address differences between first anniversaries and those that occur after the passage of time (five years; ten years). Special attention will be paid to how educational institutions and social service organizations can deal with trauma anniversaries.

Social Workers in Health Care: Enhancing Your Power to Make an Impact: A Three-Part Intensive Series

ID: 5844WEB

Enhancing Your Power to Make an Impact: A Three-Part Health Care Series
This three-webinar series is designed to empower social workers with skills and insights for meeting challenges unique to the health care setting. The series is comprised of the three webinars below. Each webinar is two-hours long. They cannot be taken separately:

Day 1) Owning Your Seat at the Table: How to Feel Empowered and Work Effectively in an Interdisciplinary Team
Social Workers are integral parts of interdisciplinary health care teams. Client psychosocial issues have a great impact on their medical status and oftentimes adherence to recommended treatment. This workshop will focus on how to find your voice and empower you to become an effective and contributing member of your interdisciplinary team. Speaking up is a behavioral choice that clinicians can exercise through building upon self-esteem, leadership skills, navigation of systems and most importantly advocating for our clients.

Day 2) Recognizing Your Brilliance: Adapting the Versatility of Your Skill Set for Various Populations
Social workers often gravitate towards working in specialized populations. We have great power in the fluidity of our field to expand our client specialty lane by working in various age groups and medical conditions. Due to the risk of burn-out, social workers may feel it to be helpful to explore other populations to work with rather then exit the field of social work. This workshop will explore what specialty populations exist and how to adapt your skill set for various health care career opportunities.

Day 3) Making an Impact by Maximizing Your Interventions: How to Make the Most Out of Interactions with Clients and Yourself
Social workers in the health care system are often faced with brief, possibly one-time interactions with clients. One can wonder, how much of an impact am I really making if I have such short exchanges? This workshop will focus on how to make connections although brief, effective, and meaningful through quick skill building interventions. Additionally, social workers may struggle with their own workday self-care and advocacy of needs. Tools for self-care and professional empowerment will also be provided.

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

ID: 4193WEB

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.

Waiting for the Mud to Settle: Mindfulness as a Coping Strategy During Chaotic Times

ID: 1014WEB

During times of uncertainty and chaos, feelings of fear, anxiety, overwhelm and grief are likely to rise to the surface and dominate our awareness. Mindfulness involves focusing awareness and non-judgmental attention to the experience of the present moment. When practicing mindfulness, we do not push our emotions aside, but notice them without judgment, with acceptance and curiosity instead. It has been noted that what we resist persists and this gentle allowing of our experience in the present moment has been scientifically proven to improve physical and emotional health. This webinar will provide participants with a basic foundation of the principles of mindfulness in addition to experiential practice of a variety of mindfulness exercises. Jon Kabbat-Zinn, a pioneer in bringing mindfulness to Western culture stated: “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” At this unprecedented time in our history, mindfulness can be an effective coping strategy for helping professionals, their loved ones and their clients.
