PLEASE NOTE: YOU MAY ATTEND ONE OR BOTH WORKSHOPS IN THIS EVENT. PLEASE SPECIFY YOUR PREFERENCE WHEN REGISTERING.

COURSE #1:

Social Media and Social Work Ethics (3 Contact Hour CEUs in Ethics)
9 a.m.-noon

Lisa Kays PLLC invites you to attend this workshop exploring the intersection of social media, the online world, and technology and our ethical practice as social workers. The workshop will be explore specific cases and questions about our work in the digital age in the context of the NASW Code of Ethics and the practical and clinical experience of other participants. In addition, participants will be invited to explore their own feelings, reactions, attitudes and beliefs as relates to the online world and their practice and to develop and discuss clinical approaches with clients that take into account a diverse, tolerant approach to the digital world we all now navigate.

Learning objectives of the course:
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
1. Identify three principles within the NASW Code of Ethics relevant to the use of social media in social work practice.
2. Identify three personal or cultural assumptions, feelings or beliefs guiding their attitudes and practices related to the online world, social media or the use of technology in practice.
3. Apply principles within the NASW Code of Ethics to clinical scenarios related to the online world, technology or social media.
4. Identify three ways to protect the safety and confidentiality of clients in the digital world.

This course is appropriate for social workers at the following levels of practice: beginning and intermediate.

Because the workshop is highly participatory and draws heavily on clinician questions and scenarios, it is applicable to a wide-range of social workers at varying levels of experience. Indeed, social workers will walk away with different take-aways depending in their level/experience in practice, as outlined below:

Beginner: Beginning social workers will have an opportunity to explore how social media can and does impact their practice, and to start to develop their own values and identity—based on and informed by the NASW Code of Ethics and experiences of more advanced clinicians—related to how they may or may not interact with social media and/or integrate it into their work.

Intermediate: Intermediate level social workers who may have developed a more cohesive professional identity and values will be able to explore how social media may or may not fit into that identity and their values. They may explore and benefit more from discussion of strategies for managing clinical scenarios related to social media based on those that have emerged in their prior experience. In addition, they will have an opportunity to reflect on and review practices they have been engaging on and to assess their appropriateness in light of the NASW Code of Ethics and input from other clinicians.

The workshop will be led by Lisa Kays, LICSW, LCSW-C. Lisa began writing and thinking about the ethics and influence of technology and social practice as an MSW student and has continued to teach, write, and learn about these issues throughout her career as a social worker since 2011. With an MA in international print journalism and a prior career in public relations and communications, Lisa has experience with and knowledge of the practical elements of technology and social media that she blends with her practice as a social worker and brings to these workshops.
