8 UTAUSTINSOCIALWORKCEU.ORG ONLINE CEU OPPORTUNITIES FALL 2015 LIVE WEDNESDAY WEBINARS: Fee: $35 per module $30 for on-demand following webinar CEUs: CEU per module SEPTEMBER 9: 2:00-3:30 p.m. CST Cossy Hough, LCSW Ethics of Comprehensive Case Management: Parts 2 (Part 1 Available On-Demand!) Cossy Hough, LCSW, worked several years in public and mental health before accepting a position at the Department of State Health Services (DSHS).

In the summer of 2009, Ms. Hough left DSHS to become a member of the clinical faculty at UT Austin School of Social Work. NASW implemented updated Case Management Standards for Social Workers in 2013, outlining the components of comprehensive, quality case management services. This webinar will review the Standards and the NASW Code of Ethics using the topic areas of professionalism, quality services, systems focus and advocacy, and service documentation and advocacy. As these topics are reviewed, issues facing today s case mangers, such as client choice, conflicts of interest and cultural humility will be discussed. The webinars will also include a review of what case manager supervisors should focus on as they provide oversight to their supervisee s services. OCTOBER 14: 12:00-1:30 p.m. CST Monica Faulkner, PhD, LMSW Research to Practice Series Session: Brave Conversations: Utilizing Trauma-informed Approaches to Talk to Youth About Sexual Health Monica Faulkner, PhD, LMSW is the Co-Director of the Child and Family Research Institute located within the School of Social Work at UT Austin. She has practice experience working with youth in foster care and clients who experienced domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Over the past three years, she has been working with a team to implement and evaluate teen pregnancy prevention curricula for youth in high risk settings such as juvenile detention and foster care. Through that work, she has identified major issues in sex educ - tion for youth who have experienced trauma. Our general approach to adolescent sexual health alienates and shames youth who have experienced sexual violence. By focusing solely on risk and prevention, sex education programs and youth-serving professionals generally fail to engage youth in necessary conversations about their power, choice and consent. This webinar will provide guidance to youth-serving professionals so they can have brave conversations with youth. We will discuss the need for trauma informed sex education, analyze shaming language and discuss how to incorporate trauma informed practices in daily work.

She is particularly interested in documenting how distress, broadly defined, becomes articulated across individual, cultural, and institutional levels. Her current research program focuses on suicidal behavior among Hispanic adolescents. This work is motivated by the significant public health concern that young Latinas in the United States attempt suicide more often than any other group of teenagers. This workshop will provide an overview of the similarities and differences between non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) and suicidal behaviors in adolescent Hispanic girls. Attention will be directed toward understanding the challenges of distinguishing these two behaviors (NSSI and attempted suicide) and the prevalence of self-harmful behaviors in Latina adolescent populations.
