Beyond the Individual: A Community Beset by Racial Trauma

ID: 5840WEB

The COVID-19 pandemic undeniably exposed endemic vulnerabilities within the black community resulting from centuries of systemic oppression. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study is a landmark public health study that expanded our understanding of trauma and its impact, yet still falls short of elucidating the disparate impact of trauma and how it effects entire communities. With racial trauma as a central focus, this workshop will augment your understanding of trauma, beyond the level of the individual, toward an understanding of how it manifests in a community. This webinar will advance a framework for understanding racially influenced community trauma, its drivers, and its consequences. As well as offering treatment considerations for clinical practice. *This webinar does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics.

LGBT Issues and the Law

The participant will also learn who they can refer their client to and what kind of assistance is available to them, as well what changes are currently pending to make New Jersey safer and more equal for LGBT clients.

Medical Aid in Dying: The Basics

ID: 1139WEB

In August of 2019, the NJ Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act (MAID) took effect.

Moral Distress and Injury in Social Work: Cases, Causes, and Strategies for Prevention

ID: 4264WEB

Social workers sometimes learn about, witness, perpetrate, or fail to prevent acts that violate their deeply held beliefs. The harm that they experience is referred to as moral distress or injury.

Dr. Frederic Reamer will discuss the concepts of moral distress, injury, and demoralization; the symptoms that can manifest; prevention, self-care, and resilience; legal and ethical obligations, including what it means to be a whistleblower; and how to develop moral courage to advocate for organizational and policy changes to prevent harm. *This webinar does not qualify for NBCC clock hours for ethics.

Supervision in Uncertain Times: Challenges and Techniques to Help Keep You & Your Staff Safe

ID: 4788WEB

Many professionals assume some risk as a part of the job, but in doing so may overlook steps that can be taken to maintain a safer environment for themselves and their client.

Triggers and Boundary Crossings

ID: 1017WEB

When we work with other human beings, it is inevitable that we will be triggered at one time or another. A trigger has been likened to “emotional shrapnel,” and can serve as a guidepost to what still needs healing within us. They are our personal “check engine light.” Being triggered also leaves us more vulnerable to crossing professional boundaries. It is important for helping professionals to recognize when they are being triggered in order to be effective in the therapeutic relationship with clients and to become clear when self-care is required.

This webinar will review how triggers are activated and why, will provide a list of somatic clues that will help to identify when we are being triggered and a set of resources to use when we have identified we are triggered to ensure that we stay attuned to our clients. Participants will be given the opportunity to practice some of these techniques. A discussion of common boundary crossings and techniques to stay in boundaries will also be included. *This webinar does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics.
