Description

Join Gladney University for an Ethics Training Day.
3 separate sessions will be offered and up to 5.5 Ethics CEUs will be awarded to counselors and social workers. Lunch is included with the purchase of an all day pass!

Session 1: 9:00 - 12:00
"Texas Ethics for LPC, LMFT, LSW"
Dr. Rhonda Johnson, LPC-S, LMFT-S, RPT-S, NCC, CEAP, Center for Counseling and Family Relationships

Many professionals practice for years before being fully knowledgeable of the Board Rules and Code of Ethics for their license. As mental health professionals, we are solely responsible from the time of licensure for being familiar with and adhering to these guidelines for our profession. This Texas Ethics training is a reminder of rules for our specific licenses, allows exposure to other license requirements to help hold other mental health professionals accountable, and allows group interaction throughout the training. Through this training, participants will identify their own pitfalls and how to make necessary changes to avoid board complaints. Dr. Johnson uses stories throughout the training of her own experiences and those of others from her 19 years of being under licensure by the boards.

12:00 - 1:00: Lunch, Networking, and Door Prizes

Session 2: 1:00 - 2:00
"Connect the Dots"
James A. Wallace, ACH Child and Family Services

Do you remember playing tag growing up? One person is "it," and they are trying to tag someone else to be "it.” Most people didn’t like being “it.” So where I’m from we always had a "base" (usually a tree or some other stationary object) when we played, and if I was on base I was safe from getting tagged. When you were being chased by the person that was it we raced back to base to catch our breath and strategize. I think the game of tag reflects the work that we do. We had rules in tag. As kids you often heard someone yell “stop cheating!” These days we have ethical standards that allow us to avoid that familiar verbal attack. I’m also sure that we have all been drained at times and felt more like Tom Hanks in the movie Castaway - isolated with nobody but Wilson listening - than a member of a team. What do we do in the moments when the chase is on and things aren’t the way we thought they would be? How do we connect the dots between experiences, training and situations that we find ourselves in with integrity? How do we get back to base? Let’s talk about “playing tag" and Connecting the Dots.

Session 3: 2:30 - 4:00
"LGBTQ Ethics Training"
Kimberly Bushlow, LMSW, ACH Child and Family Services

The purpose of this training is to explore the ethical considerations of professionals working with LGBTQ population through the lens of The Social Work Code of Ethics and The American Counseling Association. The training will explain some of the prominent struggles that youth who identify as LGBTQ deal with, as well as ways that professionals can ethically work with individuals who identify as LGBTQ. At the end of this training you will be able to:

  • Identify some of the struggles that individuals who identify at LGBTQ face

  • Prioritize the ethical obligation of the Social Work and Counseling professions toward LGBTQ individuals

  • Outline the ethical decision making process in working with the LGBTQ population

  • Plan strategies to use the ethical decision making process with individuals who identify as LGBTQ

James A. Wallace

Here's all you need to know about me in one sentence: It took me 22 years to get my degree. Not my Ph.D. My Bachelors. I took my first college class in 1991 and I received my Bachelor’s in Social Work in 2013. Even for someone not good at math I know that is a LONG time. I have learned a few things along the way though. I began my career working in adolescent corrections, and spent several years working in behavioral care and case management. Over the last 11 years I have traveled the precarious road of parenthood-kind-of by raising a niece (single parents get much respect from me). I now have the privilege of training at ACH Child and Family Services, which is the easiest job I’ve ever had - the reason being that while people often attend trainings with disdain, I haven’t been threatened, cursed at or the target of flying objects in quite some time. My passion is bridging the gap between what we learn in coursework and training and how to apply it in critical situations.
