She currently teaches courses in social work, develops and presents continuing education programs covering social work ethics and boundaries, leadership and supervision, case management, documentation, confidentiality, adoption competency, safety in the field, etc. She is a Trainer for the Training for Adoption Competency (TAC) curriculum through the Center for Adoption Support and Education (CASE) and UWM’s Co-Director for TAC.

Participants will gain a better awareness of the complicated nature of professional ethics and boundaries and will learn techniques for ethical decision-making. This program is designed to be interactive as participants share challenging ethical issues encountered while providing services both inside and outside the office setting. Participants will also learn about the importance of assessing various aspects of their programs and related policies and procedures to protect clients and staff and reduce professional risk. Ethical decision-making processes will be addressed in a variety of contexts using case examples and best practice models to identify and address complicated scenarios within human service organizations.

"In my over ten years in the field, this was by far the best Ethics and Boundaries training I have ever participated in. I particularly enjoyed the collection of local examples she used in reinforcing confidentiality when setting boundaries." - Theresa

"Jeanne is a great presenter. I love her style of teaching, whether in person or online. She did a great job of holding my attention. I like her organization and sense of humor." - Kathy

Dr Jason Karlawish
The Problem of Alzheimer’s: How Science, Culture, and Politics Turned a Rare Disease into a Crisis and What We Can Do About It
  • Type: Event
  • Start Date: 10/12/2022
  • Meeting Time(s): 9 am-11 am
  • Cost: Free
  • Credits: 0.1 CEU
  • Includes: Snacks, Coffee, Beverages

In a talk rich in science, history, and characters, Dr. Jason Karlawish takes us inside laboratories, patients' homes, caregivers’ support groups, progressive care communities, and his own practice at the Penn Memory Center. He will trace Alzheimer’s from its beginnings to its recognition as a crisis. While he offers an unambiguous account of decades of missed opportunities and our health care systems’ failures to take action, he tells the story of the biomedical breakthroughs that may allow Alzheimer’s to finally be prevented and treated by medicine and also presents an argument for how we can live with dementia: the ways patients can reclaim their autonomy and redefine their sense of self, how families can support their loved ones, and the innovative reforms we can make as a society that would give caregivers and patients better quality of life. 

Jason Karlawish is a physician and writer. He researches and writes about issues at the intersections of bioethics, aging, and the neurosciences. He is the author of The Problem of Alzheimer’s: How Science, Culture, and Politics Turned a Rare Disease into a Crisis and What We Can Do About It and the novel Open Wound: The Tragic Obsession of Dr. William Beaumont and has written essays for the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Forbes, The Hill, Nature, STAT, and the Philadelphia Inquirer. He is a Professor of Medicine, Medical Ethics and Health Policy, and Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania and Co-Director of the Penn Memory Center, where he cares for patients. He lives in Philadelphia.
