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.

Loss and Grief: Social Media's Impact on the Way We Grieve

A conference designed for social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, nurses, clergy, funeral directors, pastoral ministers, chaplains, educators and health and human services professionals.

Workshop Description:

What is death and grief like for those who are plugged-in, wireless, WiFi cyber networked? What are the unique issues and age-related concerns as we chart new ways of mourning in an online environment? The Internet has profoundly changed the way in which individuals respond to death-related encounters in terms of the accessibility of information and opportunities to connect with others with similar concerns. These encounters are moderated by developmental differences in the comprehension of death, types of death-related encounters, cultural contexts and coping mechanisms.

This workshop will explore how the virtual world influences and is influenced by children, adolescents, young adults and adults as they work to construct understandings and cope with feelings about death in our contemporary networked environments. You will gain new insights for helping grieving families and individuals through practical information and engaging activities.

Learning Objectives:

• Articulate development differences in death concepts between children, adolescents, young adults and adults.
• Discuss how the virtual world influences and is influenced by individuals across different points in the lifespan as they try to understand death and seek support and solace when they are grieving.
• Review some of the research literature on how the Internet is currently being used to mediate our experiences with death.
• Draw out the implications for practitioners who work with the bereaved.
