This webinar will explore ways in which social workers can pre-empt and respond to ethical challenges in private practice, including working in small communities, managing dual relationships, offering reduced fees, negotiating part-time private practice with agency-based work, and preparing for contingencies such as illness, impairment, and death of a social worker (including the use of professional wills).

Participants will learn how to identify and manage issues that may arise out of dual relationships, including having a part-time private practice in addition to agency-based practice or playing more than one role with clients (NASW COE Standard 1.06). Participants will learn how to prioritize client needs (NASW COE Standard 1.01) while also managing concerns about safety, professional competence (NASW COE Standard 1.04), and fair fees (NASW COE Standard 1.13). Participants will learn how to manage potential dual relationships when clients ask social workers to provide family or couple’s counseling in addition to individual counseling (NASW COE Standard 1.06). Participants will learn how to manage requests for services or information from family members of a client who has died (NASW COE Standards 1.06 and 1.07).

Objectives: Distinguish between content and emotions in the couples’ interactions and guide couples to express primary emotions in order to be more relationally connected. Learn to identify the style and method they use to communicate which is preventing them from being understood and feeling connected.

Webinar: Organizing Support to Protect & Expand School Social Work Jobs

Cost: SPS Members: Free / NASW Members: $20 / Non-NASW Members: $30 CE: 1 Social Work Contact Hour Presenter: Michelle Alvarez, MSW, EdD; Stephen A. Karp, LMSW; Dina L. Kastner, MSS, MLSP; Brenda Coble Lindsey, Ed.D, MSW, LCSW The roles and functions of school social workers are unique within school systems. While school social workers collaborate with other Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (SISP), there are numerous functions that school social workers perform that others cannot. Unfortunately, many school systems do not recognize the full value of school social work services and wrongfully may think that related professions can fill the roles of the school social worker. This webinar will address this issue by presenting proven strategies from the field that have protected existing school social work positions and have expanded positions within school systems. Case examples will be used to illustrate how school social workers can organize support both within and outside of the school system to protect and expand jobs. The presentation will include empowering students and families as allies, gaining community support, lobbying school boards and other public officials, and building coalition with your state NASW chapter. School social workers are wonderful advocates for students and their families. This webinar will help you build similar advocacy skills for yourself. Objectives: Understand unique roles and functions of school social workers and how they differ from other Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (SISP). Identify strategies that have been used to protect existing and create new school social work positions. Describe effective advocacy methods that can be used to empower students and families and build coalitions with state NASW chapters. #School Social Work #ceu #CEU
