Ethnoracial Issues and Psychopharmacology

ID: 5832WEB

In the US, psychopharmacology has been in existence for approximately 70 years since the FDA approval of Thorazine (1952). Much of the research focus has been on group differences associated with age and gender. Surprisingly, little research has focused on different ethnoracial groups. This presentation will look at differences in how medications are absorbed, distributed and metabolized (known as pharmacokinetics) across groups. In addition, there are differences in how ethnoracial groups view the value of psychotropic medication including medication adherence, another area to be discussed within this workshop.

How to Deal with Trauma Anniversaries: Shootings, Deaths, Suicides, and Pandemics

ID: 4260WEB

This webinar is designed to deal with the reality that traumatic events do not disappear with the passage of time and the original trauma can be retriggered by anniversaries. We need quality ways in which to deal with trauma anniversaries that recognize their power and do not exacerbate the trauma symptoms evoked. This webinar will provide concrete examples of effective strategies for remembering traumas among individuals, families, communities and organizations. The examples will address the reality that anniversaries affect and must be remembered differently among children and adults, those located near and far during and after the original trauma, and those with other intervening trauma triggering experiences. We will also address differences between first anniversaries and those that occur after the passage of time (five years; ten years). Special attention will be paid to how educational institutions and social service organizations can deal with trauma anniversaries.

Reproductive Justice: What Social Workers Need to Know

ID: 4233WEB

As assaults on reproductive health continue across the country, the time is now for social workers to learn about the tenets of Reproductive Justice (RJ). A framework developed by minoritized groups in the 1990s, RJ moves the abortion discourse beyond “choice” and considers the elements that contribute to or hinder true bodily autonomy: the right to have a child, the right to not have a child, and the right raise a child in safe and healthy environments. As RJ especially considers the impact of legislation, policy, and intervention on vulnerable communities, it is especially relevant during today’s socio-political climate. This course will introduce, define, and explore the tenets of RJ and how they directly apply to social work advocacy and practice. Concrete suggestions for advocacy and intervention will also be provided.

Should Psychotherapy Be Fun? Let's Talk About Dopamine

ID: 5432WEB

There are many goals of psychotherapy including managing difficult feelings, dealing with trauma, and making healthier behavioral choices. This webinar explores mechanisms of healing including utilizing the therapeutic relationship and understanding that what we expose ourselves to (people, the arts, movement) changes our neurotransmitters and therefore how we experience the world. This interactive workshop examines how we can help those we serve, and ourselves, to find areas of control and inspiration to elevate our mood and increase our sense of well-being. Utilizing various videos, this webinar reflects on what neurotransmitters are stimulated when we enjoy music, comedy, and physical movement. Using a strength-based approach, participants are encouraged to incorporate discussion of the arts, comedy, and physical movement into psychotherapy to stabilize and increase mood and foster empowerment among those we treat.

This is a Time of Suffering: Comforting Ourselves through Self-Compassion

ID: 4183WEB

There is no denying that this time in our history is one of the most stressful in our lifetime. Prolonged exposure to stress is scientifically proven to be detrimental to our physical and emotional health. It is more important now than ever to understand the power of self-acceptance and self-compassion in buffering the stress response and the psychological and physiological impact it has on our health. Neuroscientists have proven that critical self-talk is perceived by the brain as a threat to our survival and generates a similar stress response to an external traumatic event. These webinars will allow participants to assess their own level of self-compassion. This webinar will discuss the definition and elements of self-compassion, the stages of self-compassion and obstacles to self-compassion. Also, this will is primarily experiential and will introduce participants to a variety of self-compassion exercises that they can easily practice themselves or teach to their clients.

Waiting for the Mud to Settle: Mindfulness as a Coping Strategy During Chaotic Times

ID: 1014WEB

During times of uncertainty and chaos, feelings of fear, anxiety, overwhelm and grief are likely to rise to the surface and dominate our awareness. Mindfulness involves focusing awareness and non-judgmental attention to the experience of the present moment. When practicing mindfulness, we do not push our emotions aside, but notice them without judgment, with acceptance and curiosity instead. It has been noted that what we resist persists and this gentle allowing of our experience in the present moment has been scientifically proven to improve physical and emotional health. This webinar will provide participants with a basic foundation of the principles of mindfulness in addition to experiential practice of a variety of mindfulness exercises. Jon Kabbat-Zinn, a pioneer in bringing mindfulness to Western culture stated: “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” At this unprecedented time in our history, mindfulness can be an effective coping strategy for helping professionals, their loved ones and their clients.
