Topic: Toward a Sex Positive Perspective in Social Work | Heather Woodford, ASW
Description: This presentation aims to provide attendees with a sex positive perspective on working with clients. The presenter will provide insight from her own professional work in this arena. The talk will provide foundational non-stigmatizing terms for use with clients whose sexual and relationship practices do not conform to cultural norms - such as BDSM/kink, LGBTQIAA people, and consensual non-monogamy. The presenter will provide community, informational, and academic resources for further professional learning, and client referral.
Topic: Mental Health Issues in Foster and Adopted Children | Diane Miller
- To explore factors that can cause children to come into the child welfare system, and how these factors play a part in possible mental health issues for these children.
- Examining quality of care for children in the child welfare system, and the adjustment or lack thereof, of children to a new living environment.
- Identifying treatment modalities that have been proven to be most effective when working with children in the child welfare system.
- Taking a closer look at permanency for children in the child welfare system. Identifying issues adoptive families face when adopting a child, and long term effects on children who have been permanently removed from their family of origin and adopted.
I have worked in child welfare as a trainer and a social worker for the last 15 years.Ii am also a foster/adopt parent of five children. Having experienced foster care and adoption issues from both perspectives, has given me a unique understanding of the challenges faced by caregivers, and more importantly children who enter into the child welfare system.
Additional topics will be added as they come available.
2.0 CEUs provided - free to members and to attendees not earning CEUs, $20 for nonmembers
