Presenter: Tony Yamamoto, LCSW
Description: The presentation will address two unique specialties of social work practice: medical social work and school social work. The clinical practices are shaped by the organizational setting and the mission of the organization. In comparing the two practices, there will be a comparison between the two settings and a contrast to practice in a community mental health setting. Typically, the approach is solution focused and brief. The intent is not to address the intra psychic tension and problems of the client. The emphasis is on working on the “person in environment”. The social worker works with the macro and meta systems. Case management and casework are integral to this approach.
CEUs: 2.0 hours
About the presenter: Tony has extensive experience in social work practice in a variety of settings (acute inpatient psychiatric, pediatric hospital, outpatient treatment, partial hospitalization, residential care, community-based programming, primary prevention, case management, intake/admissions, and crisis residential care).
