Living with Loss: Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer's

Darcy Harris, Pd.D., R.N., R.S.W., FT
October 29, 2018  |  Face-to-Face  |  FREE EVENT

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease creates a unique form of grief that involves losing a loved one in increments over a long period of time. The caregiving experience is often punctuated with uncertainty, anxiety, and difficult decisions, whether a loved one is at home or in a care facility. In this talk, Dr. Darcy Harris explores the unique grief that occurs when a loved one is physically present, but becomes slowly absent in many other ways. 



Advanced Ethics and Boundaries

Jeanne Wagner, MSW, LCSW, ACSW
November 16, 2018  |  Face-to-Face

The management of ethics, boundaries, and confidentiality is especially critical for human service professionals. This workshop addresses the unique issues encountered during the provision of social services and therapy.  The emergence of technology and its complications are addressed to highlight the changing trends in ethical practice in the 21st century.



New Standards of Ethics in Technology Use

Nick Smiar
February 8, 2019  |  Face-to-Face

Technology is an integral part of social work practice, both assisting us in enhancing practice and posing new and complex problems in that practice.  Explore the ethical dimensions of the use of technology, especially in regard to professional boundaries, confidentiality, electronic communications and social media, and telehealth.  We will employ both MPSW 20 Code of Conduct and the recently revised NASW Code of Ethics in group discussion of scenarios drawn from practice.
