New Ethical Dilemmas Every Thursday from May 23, 2024 to June 27, 2024 (2:00pm- 3:30pm CT) Online Enhanced Professional Learning (EPL) Series  Registration Information Coming Soon!   With the sudden onset of the coronavirus, the use of technology and social media by behavioral health and recovery support for personal and professional purposes has increased dramatically. As such, ethical and practice issues like self-disclosure in postings, unintentional boundary crossings and violations, privacy and security problems reflect just some of the new dilemmas clinicians and peer support specialists encounter frequently. Adding to the problem is a lack of definitive guidance from existing professional and ethical codes until recently. This in-depth, online learning series will address common ethical dilemmas behavioral health and peer support specialists face related to the use of technology, social networking sites, and web-based search engines. Case scenarios, PowerPoint slides, and activities will be used to highlight these dilemmas and encourage discussions among participants related to: 1) Ethics, competency, and the use of technology in the time of COVID-19; 2) Digital Novice vs. Digital Pro; 3) HIPAA and 42CRF Part II considerations for texting, email, and videoconferencing; 4) Use of social media and potential ethical pitfalls; 5) Employer/employee issue with technology ; and 6) Applying ethical decision-making models with ethical dilemmas. This online learning series will provide instruction, learning activities, and self-study as well as interactive discussions/activities, videos, feedback, and articles. This EPL is hosted by NFARtec, a partner with the SSW ATTC.   
Supervision and Leadership Every Thursday from August 22, 2024 to September 26, 2024 (12:00pm - 1:30pm CT) Online Enhanced Professional Learning (EPL) Series Registration Information Coming Soon!   Supervision is more than tending to schedules, checking documentation, and reviewing cases. Clinical supervisors are in the unique position to assist clinicians in their ongoing clinical skill development. Adopting the concept of deliberate practice, supervisors can help clinicians implement clinical skills that may lead to better outcomes for the people they serve. These interactive sessions will guide participants in exploring current practices, focusing on skill practice to enhance supervision, and incorporating routine feedback for specific skills. Participants will practice using real- and case-examples to examine managing feedback, difficult situations, and cultural differences. This EPL is hosted by NFARtec, a partner of the SSW ATTC.
