Workshop/Training Description & Objectives

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.
