Kinship, Cultural Connections, & The Ever-Changing Family

NASW-LA Sponsored Workshop:
#1526: April 9, 2015; 9:00 am - 4:30 pm. Registration begins at 8:30 am. *(Baton Rouge)
Kinship, Cultural Connections, & the Ever-Changing Family.
Presented by John Raible, PhD.
East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, 7711 Goodwood Boulevard 70806, between Lobdell Avenue and East Airport Boulevard.
Diversity is a major theme of adoption and foster care given the demographics of the children needing families and the ever-changing composition of families. Issues of belonging, identity and differences affect children and parents alike. Families vary in structure, composition, racial makeup and dynamics. Clinical practice and therapeutic strategies must be tailored to families in a manner that respect their unique composition and culture. This course presents a framework for individualizing practice with relative and kinship placements. Participants learn about the ever changing family, including gay, lesbian, single parent, and transracial families, and the dynamics that shape the family’s experiences.
6.0 Clinical hours.Pre-registration deadline is 4/3/15.

Family Group Decision Making I

NASW-LA Sponsored Workshop:
#1532: April 10, 2015; 8:45 am – 12:00 noon. Registration begins at 8:15 am. (Lafayette)
Family Group Decision Making I.
Presented by Susan C. Norwood, M.Ed. LPC.
Vermillion Conference Center, 326 Gauthier Rd., Lafayette, LA 70501
“Human beings are happier, more productive and more likely to make positive changes in their behavior when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.” Family group decision making is an inclusive and informal process for making treatment plans that safeguard children and adults. A trained, independent coordinator brings the family group and the authorities together to create and carry out the plan. Using restorative practices to enhance relationship, communication, and problem solving skills, social workers can help facilitate successful treatment outcomes for families. In this session, participants will experience Family Group Decision Making, practice skills for planning, facilitating and processing it, and learn how restorative practices can be applied to other aspects of their work and lives.
3.0 Clinical hours.Pre-registration deadline is 4/3/15

“Human beings are happier, more productive and more likely to make positive changes in their behavior when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.” One of a range of restorative practices that emphasize empowering families to make their own decisions rather than making decisions for them, Family Group Decision Making/Family Team Meeting is an inclusive and informal process for making treatment plans that safeguard children and adults. In this session, participants who already have some introduction to Family Group Decision Making or to the Family Team Meeting, will practice skills for planning, facilitating and processing these meetings using case studies from their own work settings.

The Gray Side of Ethics.
Presented by Amber Hebert, LCSW-BACS

New social workers sometimes see ethical dilemmas as black and white.

The presenter will use the NASW Code of Ethics as well as the Practice Act to guide decision-making strategies.
