An Ethics and Cultural Competence Seminar

Live Webinar

 

 

Class 1: 10:00-1:00PM EST

The Ethical Application of Life Coaching for Clinicians (3 CE credits - Ethics)

Clinicians have much to gain from learning the skills of Life Coaching. While life Coaching is often considered a subset of CBT in truth it is much more.

Social Workers who learn the art of coaching can expand their expertise beyond basic clinical service provision. They can Empower clients and colleagues to be more autonomous. They can enhance their leadership, consulting and mediation skills, as well as these skills in their clients. And facilitate change that comes from the client (inside out vs. outside in).

This training will address ethical applications of life coaching techniques practiced by licensed clinicians.

(Trainer: Michell Stanley, LICSW, RYT, CLC is the founder and director of Moksha Living. Michell helps individuals to develop more Trust, Intimacy, and Balance in order to thrive in the present and secure their legacy. Michell uses the combination of yoga, life coaching, somatic experiencing and mindfulness training for a more “wholistic” approach to psychology. Her experience includes social work in mental health, education, criminal justice and community development arenas. She aims to empower professionals to maximize their potential by expanding their impact and understanding of their own value, through the service they provide and the role they serve in relationships. Michell is currently living in D.C. and L.A while virtually managing a business and working with clients and organizations all over the world. Her practice that started as a 1-woman-show, has expanded into a multi-disciplinary coaching and leadership school that serves the Federal Government, NASA, DC Courts and the NFL by helping their employees tap into their purpose by learning to coach others.)

 

Class 2: 1:45-4:45PM EST

The Intersection of Faith and Intimate Partner Abuse (3 CE Credits – Cultural Competence)

Faith or religious beliefs can present a barrier to safety for individuals experiencing Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). Likewise, many people outline their faith and beliefs as justifications for abusive behaviors. This workshop will provide a foundational understanding of the intersection of faith and IPV. Participants will gain strategies to support survivors as they navigate safety, their identified obligations to their religious beliefs, and their associated emotions.

This workshop will also address worker cultural humility and the need for culturally appropriate intervention strategies addressing the intersections of faith/religion, gender identity, race/culture and intimate partner violence.

(Trainer, Chandra Dawson, LISW, LCSW is a social worker with over 20 years of social work practice serving various marginalized populations primarily comprised of communities of color. She has years of organizational experience including crisis intervention, supervision, training, project management and senior leadership within organizations serving domestic violence and sexual assault survivors and numerous marginalized populations. She is the founder of The MACRO Project where she supports organizations in addressing the trauma-informed intersectional service and advocacy needs of individuals and communities.)
