Early Detection of Suicide Risk in Older Populations (Recorded Event)

Presented by Gary U. Behrman, PhD, MSW, M.Div.

For over a decade, the suicide rates in the U.S. are rising.  Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the general population, with suicides outnumbering homicides by more than two to one. Among all populations, white males over the age of 55 are at highest risk for suicidal ideation and completion.

Implementing Best Practices in Clinical Supervision with an Eye on Ethics (Recorded Event)

Presented by Teresa A. Cooley-Bennett, LCSW, LSCSW, CCDP-D, TTS

*** This course meets the 3.0 hour Ethics requirement for licensure renewal. ***      OR     ***This course meets 3.0 hour Supervision requirement for renewal of acceptable supervisors for licensure***

Providing clinical oversight and supervision in the delivery of services to vulnerable populations is a common responsibility of social workers.  Because of the unique challenges experienced, opportunities for ethical dilemmas and vicarious liability are not uncommon.   As supervisors, we are accountable not only for our own ethical behavior, but for the behavior of others including colleagues and supervisees.  This continuing education program will provide an overview of common ethical principles with a special emphasis on Vicarious Liability or the doctrine of “imputed negligence”.  As an important aspect of practice, resources for identifying, managing, and preventing ethical violations will be provided with the goal being excellent customer service to our clients, supervisees, colleagues, and agencies. This workshop meets the ethics requirements for licensure.


Trauma and Recovery (Recorded Event)

Presented by Gary U. Behrman, PhD, MSW, M.Div.

Often clients present in our practice with symptoms of depression and anxiety that might be rooted in histories of trauma. It is critical for recovery that we understand the impact of trauma on the whole person and how triggers may be threatening the quality of life for clients. The key to recovery is assisting clients in building resilience, which is the ability to “bounce forward.” In this workshop we will build knowledge and skills with theoretical and practical applications in the art and science of healing trauma.
