“One of the primary factors distinguishing social work from psychology, psychiatry, and the other mental health professions is its commitment to social justice.”
— Allan Edward Barsky
How does social justice show up in clinical social work? What ethical obligations do clinical social workers have to engage in social & political action? What gets in the way? In this interactive workshop, we will discuss these questions and more.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Describe how the socio-political environment impacts the well-being of clients they serve.
Summarize the call to social & political action for social workers found in the NASW Code of Ethics.
Generate examples of social & political action to advocate for people “who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty”.
Identify barriers to social & political action and strategies for addressing them.
TWO CEUs will be available for those who complete this training, including ONE HOUR OF ETHICS.
This training will be held IN PERSON at Boise State University in the Interactive Learning Center, room 202. Attending via Zoom will also be an option.
We will not be offering any discounted parking for this event but you can park for free in Julia Davis park near the zoo and walk over the bridge to campus - or you can pay for parking in the Brady garage.
