No CE: FREE | With CE (Members): $15 | With CE (Nonmembers): $20 Credit: 1.5 Social Work Contact Hours Panelists: Victor A. Manalo, PhD Ayesha Ghazi Edwin, LLMSW, CLSSGB Kari Tabag, PhD(c), LCSW-R Susan Nakaoka, MA, MSW, PhD During the COVID-19 pandemic, violent attacks against and harassment toward Asian Americans have spiked. Hate crimes against Asian Americans in 16 cities rose by a staggering 150% in 2020. These incidents range from violent attacks and verbal abuse to the vandalization of Asian-owned businesses. Although some attribute this spike to statements by former President Trump blaming China for COVID-19, anti-Asian racism has deep roots in American history. Join this interactive event to learn about this complex issue, and how current challenges and threats can be understood in the broader context of systemic racism in America. #Social Justice #Racial Equity #CEU

Webinar: Taking a Look at Guardianship: Important factors for Social Workers

Cost: SPS Members: Free / NASW Members: $30 / Non-NASW Members: $40 CE: 1.5 Social Work Contact Hours Presenter: Jennifer Crumlish, PhD, & Malika Moore, MSW, LICSW, LCSW-C Guardianship is a legal intervention used to protect incapacitated adults through the appointment of surrogate decision makers, typically social workers and psychologists, who assist the court in their decision-making on these matters. Social workers should certainly be particularly concerned about guardianship as more people live into older ages with some degree of impairment. This workshop presents an overview of the guardianship decision-making process and of the roles social workers and psychologists play in promoting social justice and care through their assessment process. We look at factors that are critical to social workers in our decision-making process when making a determination for or against guardianship of an incapacitated adult. Learning Objectives: Define guardianship. Explain the elements in the Capacity Risk Model. Identify domains evaluated in determining capacity. Describe issues that would contribute to the need for a guardian, resources for individuals with diminished capacity. Identify alternates to guardianship, i.e. least restrictive measures. Understand ethical implications of the guardianship recommendation. #CEU
