Discussion will include: dealing with denial in the beginning phase of work; confronting authority issues with mandatory clients (or semi-voluntary clients); creating conditions of trust and safety which allow clients to lower their defenses; challenging the "illusion of work"; understanding resistance and responding to it constructively; dealing with taboo subjects such as physical and substance abuse, sex, death and violence.

28th, Tuesday, WEBINAR ”Exploring Spirituality with Survivors of Sexual Assault” Discusses the possible impact of sexual assault on the spirituality of the survivor. Sexual assault may be experienced as a moral injury that leads to questioning ones spiritual beliefs. How can something so awful happen and how does one heal from such a grievous wound? We will discuss how spirituality may be used as an asset in treating the trauma of sexual assault, starting with assessing our own and then our client’s spiritual beliefs. Participants will learn ways to approach spirituality in a culturally relevant way, discuss spirituality without specific religious terminology, and develop community partnerships as support for survivors.

OCTOBER 2020

24th, Saturday, BURLEY, Hampton Inn "Applied Ethics for Social Workers:  Creating a Sustainable, Ethical Profession By Growing Secondary Trauma Resiliency Skills"

The human resource at the core of social service work is the most important resource that we have in our work.   It was sobering when the most current revision of the DSM confirmed that work based stress can lead to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. We will explore in this training how to have an ethical response to the need for the preservation of the bodies, minds, emotions, and relationships of  social worker themselves.
A secondary goal of this will training will be to deepen our understanding of trauma itself and increase our skills in treating trauma in our clients. We will learn about its unique impact on the brain, emotions, and bodies of our clients who are exposed to both acute trauma  and developmental trauma.  We will focus on the LGBTIQ population as a current case example of the impact of historical, developmental, and acute trauma.  
This conference will host a special PLUS session on Saturday evening.  This is for participants of the main conference who seek to move deeper into experiential integration of the content of the training.  

The MAIN conference is from:
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
6 hours of training time, with CEU  credits including ethics

Conference PLUS:  a 90-minute experiential follow up to deepen the integration of trauma resiliency skills

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm  
90 minutes of experiential integration training deepening the process of secondary trauma resiliency skills.  Integrating near-biology and effective body centered strategies.

This training is presented by a clinical social worker.
REGISTRATION coming in August.
