LGBT Issues and the Law

ID: 4073WEB

Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered often requires clients to view who they are and what their rights are as defined by law. A general understanding of what the law says is required in many situations, such as: legalizing a relationship, ending a relationship, housing, protecting civil rights in employment, and asserting one's rights when it comes to discrimination and hate crime victimization. This webinar will address what the helping professional needs to know when it comes to the New Jersey civil union and domestic partnership statutes, adoption law, the Law Against Discrimination and Hate Crimes Act, as well as the impact of Federal laws such as The Civil Rights Act, the Defense of Marriage Act, and the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, among other things. 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. Knowledge of the law is not necessary as the presenter is committed to making law understandable for social workers and other helping professionals.

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. MAID allows an adult New Jersey resident, who has the capacity to make health care decisions and who has been determined to be terminally ill, to obtain medication to self-administer to end their life. This webinar will examine the details and ethical implications of the law for both patients and providers. We will explore the roles that social workers, care managers and others may play as patients seek to access medical aid in dying. These roles could include capacity evaluations, assistance in finding providers participating in MAID, counseling on end-of-life care alternatives, witnessing documents, and attending deaths. We will also review the data on assisted dying in Oregon, which may help to guide our own work. [Elective for Gerontology Certificate Program]

Psychotherapy and Counseling with Older Adults

ID: 1070WEB

This webinar will dispel the all-too-common assumption that psychotherapy and counseling are not effective treatment modalities with senior adults. Contrary to the belief that seniors are "inflexible and stuck in their ways" as well as having diminished cognitive and reflective capacity, studies indicate that they can benefit as much from these modalities as younger persons, albeit with some different approaches, techniques and goals. In this workshop we will consider the special strengths and challenges of senior adults, the place of their particular life cycle issues and how to understand and use transference, resistance, support and interpretation in working with this population. Many case examples and exercises will be offered. [Elective for Gerontology Certificate Program]

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. We know this to be particularly true with individuals who have experienced trauma and significant losses. 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.
