How to Develop an Antiracist Lens for your Clinical Practice: This workshop will focus on introducing participants to an anti-racist practice model that will assist social workers in developing the ability to both expand capacity to understand the dynamics of transference and counter transference with regard to racialized tension. As social workers, we must be able to “metabolize” our own responses to race and also to allow for our clients the same space. This workshop will help you identify and manage racialized emotional fragility and what to do about it. You will learn techniques to help you and your client co create an environment of capacity to support authentic regulation for the emotional body.

Practice Standards Committee

NASWCO Chapter 0 4131

The Practice Standards Committee will be meeting virtually. Please contact committee chair, Elizabeth Schulte for more information.

The purpose of the Committee on Practice Standards is to examine areas of all social work practice and develop guidelines of ethical conduct. This committee does not function in lieu of the specially appointed NASW Committee on Inquiry, but rather in addition to such a committee. The Committee on Practice Standards focuses on areas in which standards of practice have not been developed, as well as areas where questions may have come forth regarding unclear interpretations of existing standards. The committee may issue advisory opinions regarding the practice of social work.

The Practice Standards Committee meets monthly and we welcome all members. To confirm a meeting date check the Community Calendar or contact the Chapter office.

The Committee has a consultative process that handles questions from members. This process guides members in the ethical decision-making process, but does not provide supervision or give legal advice. The Committee will accept questions/issues that have an impact on social work practice. You are invited to attend a meeting in person or by phone to bring the question/issue for discussion. Please contact the office to request the issue be added to a meeting agenda.

October 23, 2020 - Virtual Training held via Zoom - Registration Link: https://beyond-ethics.com/registration-for-ceus/

About the Training:
Beyond Ethics, LLC is an NASW-CO Approved CE Provider

In this workshop, Deb and participants will examine the high-risk nature of clinical practice in 2020. Deb will present vital information for participants’ ethical responses in this litigious day and age. Also, Deb will facilitate discussion of participants’ case examples, as well as her own work defending clinicians in Louisiana and Colorado who have faced legal and ethical dilemmas in their clinical practices.

Deb will help participants develop ethical, self-protective strategies to avoid the high-risk case turning into the nightmare case! As a seasoned clinician, who has a firm belief in protecting clients and guarding their confidentiality, Deb’s suggestions always are fashioned to protect the therapeutic relationship and the client and therapist from bullying, harassing legal activity.

Deb and participants will be discussing numerous case examples furnished by participants and culled from Deb’s legal practice in Louisiana and Colorado, which provides much grist for the training mill! Additionally, Deb will teach participants a relatively simple step-by-step approach for ethically responding to subpoenas for records, depositions, and/or trial testifying. Deb will help participants learn how to prepare for litigation events such as depositions and trial testifying.
