Self-Care for Social Workers: 4 Major Hacks You Need!

SESSION 1: 9:00 am-10:30am CST | 1.5 CEUs TBA

This workshop begins with an interactive ice breaker geared to captivate and motivate attendees through laughter and engagement, thereby identifying the hidden stress social workers face daily. Attendees will learn quick ways to rejuvenate themselves, schedule (non-work) downtime, and prevent stressors and social worker overload.

Telehealth for Social Workers: New Challenges and Approaches to Working with Clients

SESSION 1: 9:00 am-10:30am CST | 1.5 CEUs TBA

The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted where we work and how we conduct our social work practice. As “starting where the client is," takes on new meaning and challenges in this digital format, this workshop examines the changes involved with utilizing telehealth and explores new approaches and techniques for engaging with your clients. We will utilize lecture, case scenarios, and group discussion on the pros and cons of using telehealth, how to recognize and counter "Zoom fatigue" in social work practice, and strategies for adapting to this "new normal" format for social work and clinical interactions.

Self-Care: Beyond Mindfulness

SESSION 2: 10:45am–12:15pm | 1.5 CEUs TBA

This workshop aims to create a sustainable and consistent self-care practice for social workers working in all sectors of the field. Oftentimes social workers feel dejected when hearing the term “self-care” because it does not consider that some social workers are working in less than desirable conditions and that employers are not taking responsibility for overworking their employees at a less than desirable wage. This workshop will provide a multifaceted framework for utilizing self-care habits no matter what area or chapter of our careers we are in. This workshop will look at activities that can be done at home during free time. It will also focus on activities that can help social workers go into difficult situations/conversations and utilize what they have at their disposal to care for themselves when coming out of those situations.

COVID, Vaccine Hesitancy, and the Social Worker's Role in Addressing Medical Mistrust in Black Communities (CC)

SESSION 2: 10:45am–12:15pm | 1.5 Cultural Competency CEUs TBA

The medical community has an egregious history of harming individuals who are Black in the name of science; this has caused many Black communities to become hesitant and suspicious of medical institutions. Individuals who are Black are less likely to visit a medical institution, and those who visit are less likely to adhere to treatment plans due to apprehension and medical distrust. It's no surprise that when COVID emerged, Black communities were hesitant to receive the COVID vaccine. Many establishments and communities have invalidated and dismissed the Black community's hesitancy to receive the vaccine. It is a social worker's ethical principle to help people in need and to address social problems. Medical mistrust is the result of a larger social problem that social workers can contribute to in addressing. This cultural competency workshop explores ways social workers can address medical mistrust in Black communities.

So You Think You Know Everything About Telehealth? Post-Pandemic Telehealth Law and Policy Considerations

SESSION 2: 10:45am–12:15pm | 1.5 CEUs TBA

Think you know everything about telehealth? The COVID-19 pandemic radically altered the provision of mental health services. Widely adopted as a matter of necessity, telehealth has been shown to be an effective treatment modality. However, as the emergency response phase of the pandemic gradually recedes, the legal and regulatory framework around telehealth remains a work in progress. Utilizing a game show structure, this workshop will focus on the post-pandemic reality resulting from the widespread adoption of telehealth and what the current legal landscape may look like moving forward. Policy considerations such as licensure and telehealth equity and access to care will also be a focus.
