Practice Standards Committee

NASWCO Chapter 0 3296

The Practice Standards Committee meets virtually via Zoom at this time due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Practice Standards Committee meets monthly (*please note: the Committee does NOT meet during the months of July & December each year) and we welcome all members. The Committee has a consultative process that handles questions from members. Please contact chapter Executive Director, Leanne Rupp (lrupp.naswco@socialworkers.org) 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 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 (when in-person meetings resume post-COVID-19 pandemic) or by Zoom/phone to bring the question/issue for discussion. Please contact the NASW Chapter Executive Director, Leanne Rupp at lrupp.naswco@socialworkers.org to request the issue be added to a meeting agenda.

CSCSW October Salon - "Gender-Affirming Mental Health for Transgender and Gender Expansive Clients"

Presented by Cass Daniels, LCSW

NASWCO Chapter 0 97

The transgender and gender-expansive community face immense challenges when attempting to access adequate mental health services. Many in the trans community feel misunderstood by clinicians or even harmed by a lack of gender-affirming knowledge. This salon will support social work professionals in learning how to be more validating, welcoming, confident and skilled when working with the trans community. I will cover topics related to the distinction between sex, gender, and gender expression, how to best support a trans client, and information needed to write a WPATH letter for clients seeking gender-affirming medical care. This presentation will cover the basics of transness for clinicians who have not yet started to learn about trans identity as well as higher-level information for those that are interested in supporting clients on their transition journey.
