Ethics and Boundaries

Ethics and Boundaries:
Strengthening Cultural Competency

Workshop Description:

The ability to think, assess and engage in ways that respect the diversity of individuals and groups we serve while maintaining competent/working ethical boundaries will be the focus of this workshop. We will examine our biases, while seeking and sharing knowledge, experience and skills to better understand our clients.

This experiential ethics and boundaries training will include interactive dialogue, focused discussion and applied practice exercises as we explore the opportunity for culturally relative practice on both the micro and macro-levels that we encounter in our work. We will look at ethical dilemmas through a lens of diverse human conditions, while exploring decision making in ways to best protect client’s rights while minimizing risk to professionals.

What is Healthy Adolescent Sexuality in Today's World?

Workshop Description:

In today’s world of technology and social media, it is more difficult than ever to determine what is “normal, age-appropriate sexual behavior” for an adolescent. Equally difficult is the task of identifying which behaviors are concerning. Achieving healthy sexuality amidst the barrage of confusing and often times conflicting sexual messages from the media, specially social media, is daunting. Sexual imagery is more omnipresent than ever, and knowing how to guide our young people successfully through the myriad of information, both accurate and not, while being sensitive to gender differences, abuse histories and societal norms is a huge task. This training will help attendees identify potentially harmful impacts from the Internet, print and technology in general. Engaging and interactive discussion around how to explore the potential hazards and how to intervene with youth will be emphasized. Presenters will draw on their vast experience talking to youth about sex, sexual abuse and sexuality and offer evidence and research-based, cutting-edge information.

Trauma's Affect on the Developing Brain and Interventions for Clients with Trauma

Workshop Description:

We know that trauma affects both the brain and body. But exactly how does trauma affect development and behaviors? This training will translate current trauma research into usable information for practitioners. You will learn the definition of complex developmental trauma versus acute trauma, and the instructor will cover the effects of both on wellness, perception, memory, learning, social behavior and emotional resilience. By the end of the workshop, you will understand how to use the trauma model/lens to sort out difficult behaviors.
