    Presenter: Eryca Kasse

    Category 1 | 3 CEUs 

    Clients living with substance misuse & addiction often have histories of emotional, physical and/or sexual trauma. The 12 Step groups AA and NA are the most widespread and available peer support groups for addiction recovery, though some language of the 12 Steps may be contraindicated for survivors of trauma.

    This training:

    • provides an introduction to broadened definitions of trauma with examples throughout the lifespan and the key principles of Trauma Informed Care by SAMHSA; 
    • explores the relationship between unhealed trauma and the development of substance use disorders through an overview of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES); 
    • analyzes language of the 12 steps through a trauma informed lens, offering alternative language options to promote healing empowerment & prevent re-traumatization; 
    • and provides resources to refer clients seeking peer support alternatives to 12 step.* 
    Note:  This training has no affiliation with AA, NA or any 12 step program or entity.

    Ethics and Risk Management for
    Clinical Social Work in the New Normal: 
    Virtual Therapy, the Pandemic,
    Social Justice Upheaval and Political Conflict

    Presented by Dr. Frederic Reamer!


    VIRTUAL ZOOM ETHICS CONFERENCE - TWO DAYS
    Friday, Nov 13, 2020 from 1:00 PM EDT to 4:00 PM EDT (3 hours) & 
    Sunday, November 15, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (3 hours)

    A Total of 6 Category 1 CEUs in Ethics


    The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed clinical social work. Seasoned clinicians who prefer face-to-face sessions have had to pivot to remote and virtual sessions.

    For some social workers, the shift to distance counseling has been smooth; for others, the transition has been challenging. It is important to adopt best practices to provide distance services ethically.

    It is essential for social workers to keep pace with rapidly evolving ethical and legal standards governing online and distance practice, especially related to informed consent, client confidentiality, boundary issues, and documentation.

    In this workshop, Dr. Reamer will:

    • Provide an up-to-the-minute overview of prevailing standards in social work
    • Discuss technology-related updates to the NASW Code of Ethics; technology standards adopted jointly by the NASW, ASWB, CSWE, and Clinical Social Work Association (CSWA); and relevant laws.
    • Identify potential benefits and risks of online and distance social work services, and present practical strategies to protect clients and prevent licensing board complaints and litigation. 
    • Address ethics and risk management issues related to return-to-office protocols.
    • Explore the ethical implications of the ways in which politics and pressing social justice concerns are permeating clinical social work practice during this challenging time. 
    • Describe ways clinicians are navigating complex emotional and boundary issues that are finding their way into the therapeutic relationship.

      Learning Objectives 

      At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

      1. Identify ethics and risk management issues related to use of technology to serve and communicate with clients.
      2. Implement current ethics and practice standards related to social workers' use of technology.
      3. Design protocols to protect clients.
      4. Implement protocols to prevent ethics complaints and litigation.
      5. Manage boundary, ethical, and/or risk management issues related to clients' and practitioners' experience regarding the pandemic, political conflict and/or social justice concerns that emerge in the therapeutic relationship.

          Dr. Frederic Reamer has dedicated his career to reforming the ethics, practice, and education of the social work field through his work as a researcher, an author, and a professor. His extensive experience in ethics research has helped NASW and the social work profession as a whole over the years. Dr. Reamer is a professor in the graduate program at the Rhode Island College School of Social Work, where he has taught since 1983. Over the years, his research has focused on a variety of human service issues, ranging from mental health and criminal justice to public welfare and professional ethics. He has been a featured essayist on NPR’s Morning Edition, a commentator on NPR’s All Things Considered, and a guest on a variety of radio broadcasts on stations across the country. He has distinguished himself as an expert in the ethical use of technology within social work, and gave the keynote presentation “Managing Social Media and Electronic Communication in Social Work Practice: Ethical and Risk-management Issues” at the 2012 Association of Social Work Boards’ Education Conference, which introduced social work regulators to the ethical, practice and regulatory challenges posed by the quick rise of technology.

          Dr. Reamer received the "Distinguished Contributions to Social Work Education" award from the Council on Social Work Education (1995); Presidential Award from the National Association of Social Workers (1997); Richard Lodge Prize from Adelphi University for “outstanding contributions to the development of social work theory” (2005); Edith Abbott Award from the University of Chicago for “distinguished service to society and outstanding contributions at the local, national or international levels” (2005); Neil J.

Sarnat Award from the National Association of Social Workers for significantly advancing "the public image of social work" (2012); Excellence in Ethics Award from the National Association of Social Workers (2015); and inaugural Contributor Award from the Association of Social Work Boards (2019). In 2016 Dr. Reamer was named a Social Work Pioneer by the National Association of Social Workers for his "commitment and dedication to the social work profession and to the improvement of social and human conditions at the local, state, national, and international levels."

          Dr. Reamer received his BA in Criminology from the University of Maryland in 1974, his Masters in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago in 1975, and his PhD in Social Work from the University of Chicago in 1978.
