(1 Prescription Opioid CEU) Learn the basics about the prescription opioid addiction epidemic in the tri-state area, including the risks and signs of opioid abuse, addiction, and diversion. Hear how to spot it and referral/treatment options. This course fulfills the prescription opioid continuing education requirement for New Jersey social workers (Statute 45:15BB-11.1).
(2 Ethics CEUs) On June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court published a controversial decision in the Mississippi case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that effectively overturns Roe v. Wade (a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States generally protects the liberty to choose to have an abortion.)
The Dobbs decision has introduced compelling ethical challenges for social workers who provide services and information related to reproductive health. How can I protect my clients' privacy and confidentiality if my records are subpoenaed? How should I document conversations with clients about their reproductive health choices? Am I permitted to refuse to serve clients seeking abortion-related information and services? Am I at risk of a lawsuit, licensing board complaint, or criminal prosecution if I serve women seeking abortion-related information and services?
(1.5 Ethics CEUs) With new and emerging uses of technology in social work practice, social workers need to rethink how they establish and maintain appropriate boundaries with clients. This conversation will explore ethical issues related to using personal technology for work purposes, intentional dual relationships, unintentional dual relationships, and maintaining presence when interacting with clients through technology. Participants will gain a better understanding about how to manage boundaries in relation to: soliciting “likes” or testimonials from clients to promote their practice; using personal devices and technology for work purposes; maintaining time boundaries and self-care when clients may have 24/7 expectations of availability; making informed decisions about one’s presence and self-disclosure on social media; and selling apps to clients to assist with psychosocial issues.
