HIV AIDS

HIV/AIDS & Other Bloodborne Pathogens

This course will provide the information needed to protect yourself and your consumers. Helping professionals are vulnerable to bloodborne pathogens, viruses, and infections. Your work as a provider may expose you to diseases and infectious substances. Topics of discussion will include working with clients who have been diagnosed with HIV, AIDS, or other Bloodborne pathogens such as hepatitis; educating your consumers about safety measures to prevent exposure to their partners and family; and ethical concerns as it relates to confidentiality/duty to warn, etc.

Ethics

Ethics & Technology: Clinical Implications

In this workshop, we will review the recent changes made to the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics to address the increasing challenges presented to the professional in their use of technology while meeting the needs of their consumers. The proliferation of the use of digital and other electronic technology to deliver services, store and access information, and communicate with consumers, colleagues, and others has created new ethical challenges, particularly related to informed consent; privacy and confidentiality; boundaries, dual relationships, and conflicts of interest; practitioner competence; records and documentation; and relationships with professional colleagues. We will also discuss the flip side of the coin – what new issues are we seeing in our consumers as a result of the overwhelming use of social media?

The Next Drug Epidemic: A Generation In Crisis

An estimated 1.9 million people in the United States have a prescription opioid use disorder. Another 586,000 have a heroin use disorder. Health care providers wrote nearly a quarter of a billion opioid prescriptions in 2016—enough for every American adult to have his or her own bottle of pills. This course will discuss causational addiction factors (biomedical causes and the neuroscience of opiate addiction), statistics of the opioid crisis, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Opioid Initiative which focuses on three priority areas to tackle the opioid crisis, and the mental health implications for the professionals who work with this population.

Understanding Trauma-Informed Therapy

Trauma-Informed Therapy is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma. Many times, these experiences go unresolved and follow the trauma survivor into adulthood. Research shows that Trauma-informed Therapy guides the client to successfully resolve a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple and complex trauma experiences. While Trauma-Informed Therapy was originally developed to address the needs of children (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) who experienced sexual abuse, over the past 15 years it has been used and expanded for many other populations. In this workshop, we will explore and roleplay various techniques expert therapists use when working with the traumatized population.

Cindy Stober, LPC, LCASDirector of Addictions Department, Fellowship Health Resources, Raleigh, NC

“I thoroughly enjoyed this training workshop as it challenged me to look at situations that can arise in Clinical Supervision that I had not previously entertained. It was a small training workshop so it was highly interactive and I enjoyed engaging with the other profressional participants. The food was GREAT as well – breakfast and lunch both days were included!”
