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

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.

These include body dysmorphic disorder, illness anxiety disorder, hoarding disorder, trichotillomania, and excoriation disorder.

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.

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.

ID: 5432WEB

There are many goals of psychotherapy including managing difficult feelings, dealing with trauma, and making healthier behavioral choices.

Utilizing various videos, this webinar reflects on what neurotransmitters are stimulated when we enjoy music, comedy, and physical movement.

Social Media: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly from a Social Work Perspective

ID: 4206WEB

This webinar will examine the impact social media, music, and advertising have on today's society. Overexposure to certain media outlets can influence how people develop their value system and how they make decisions on moral issues and peer relationships.

By examining music, videos, and advertisement campaigns, we identify the negative impact of imagery and subliminal messages, and discuss ways to help individuals identify why they make the choices they make online. We will explore how to increase media literacy by educating and empowering individuals to use critical thinking skills and to see the direct and unintended consequences associated with technology. The importance of legislative advocacy will also be discussed.

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.

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.
