6 PREVENTING THE STORM: THE ETHICAL PRACTICE OF SOCIAL WORK Presenter: Jon Trzcinski In all areas of practice licensed social workers must comply with the National Association of Social Workers CODE OF ETHICS. Reduced to the Code s most basic level, the Code is relatively simple: respect your clients, don t lie, don t cheat, don t take credit for the work of others, don t have sex with your clients, don t bill for work you did not do, don t take advantage of your position, keep confidential information confidential, maintain one s competence, do not hold yourself out to be something you are not, work to make the community a better place, take care of yourself, keep your records current, be respectful to your employer, seek consultation and so forth. The theory of social work ethics is clear and, for the most part, easy. In actual practice, ethical social work can become much more difficult due to conflicting needs, conflicting opinions, sometimes restrictive legal requirements and, at times, conflicting morals and cultural values. It is not difficult for social workers in any setting or any level of practice to find themselves in the midst of a professional dilemma. At times work situations can present differing needs, conflicting values and other circumstances that may make it difficult for the social worker to determine what is the most appropriate course of action. A working familiarity with the ethical tenets of the profession should be a part of every social worker s background before such a dilemma unfolds. The goal of this workshop is to review the ethical requirements of the profession and then apply these requirements in challenging situations. This will be accomplished by the use of video clips, some lecture, and the use of actual scenarios which depict situations encountered by practicing social workers. The scenarios are intended to illustrate the challenges that a social worker may encounter and the need to examine these challenges from more than one perspective. The workshop promises to move at an enjoyable pace and establish cogent points while still having enough entertainment value to keep the audience interested. The primary reference source is the NASW Code of Ethics which can be found at: 6

7 Monday Plenary: Out of the Ashes of Decline; Reclaiming a Distressed Community Presenter: Dr. Lanny Endicott Tulsa s 61st and Peoria has a history, beginning in the 1970s, of decline and neglect related to concentration of Section 8 housing, accompanying high crime rate, poverty, and infrastructure neglect. This presentation briefly addresses these problems, yet places major focus on the positives for bringing the community back from the "ashes of decline." Monday April 27th Enjoy a lunch time session with Jim Marks, MSW, LCSW Social Work Licensure Requirements, Legislative and Policy Updates This session will provide an overview of law, rules and requirements for social work licensure and practice in the State of Oklahoma including the role of the State Licensure Board, the purpose of social work licensure, the licensing process, and an update of legislative and rules changes. Tuesday Plenary: Substance Abuse Treatment Update: Evidence Based Treatments and Effective Programs Dr. Michael Brand, Ph.D., LCSW, LADC, (LPC & LMFT inactive) Associate Professor, OUHSC, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Julio Rojas, Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist, LADC Assistant Professor, OUHSC, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences The presentation will introduce participants to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration s (SAMHSA) National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP).

9 Workshop #4 Cruel, But Not Unusual? Emerging Practices and Policies for Serving Justice Involved Individuals with Serious Mental Illness Presenter: Bob Mann, RN, LSW Administrator of Mental Health Operations, Oklahoma Department of Corrections The criminalization of mental illness is well publicized. What can be done to reverse this trend? This session will examine national models for systemic and clinical interventions that are making a difference. This presentation will give an overview of many of the systemic interventions taking place in Oklahoma and how the most effective method of preventing penetration into the justice system ( Intercept Zero is a fully funded mental health delivery system).

10 Workshop #6 Coffee Bunker: An Effective Model of Peer Support for Veterans Jeremy Nikel, MSW, LCSW President, Coffee Bunker Dr. River Smith, PhD Clinical Psychologist, VA PTSD program Presenters will discuss the importance of peer support in recovery among veteran populations. A summary of current literature on the protective nature of peer support will be applied to veteran s readjustment issues. The Coffee Bunker, a local nonprofit, will be discussed as a leading model for peer support programs. Workshop #7 Understanding the Relationship Between Empowerment & Hope in the Context of Practice with Female Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Shane R. Brady, MSW, PhD Assistant Professor, University of Oklahoma Ricky Munoz, MSW, JD Assistant Clinical Professor, Anne and Henry Zarrow School of Social Work University of Oklahoma Vanessa Brown, BS, MSW Candidate Graduate Research Assistant, Ruth Knee Center, Anne and Henry Zarrow School of Social Work, University of Oklahoma This session will present the results of a community based research study with survivors of IPV receiving services from an urban shelter. The results of this study indicate perceptions of empowerment are a positive predictor of hope for safety among survivors of IPV across ages and ethnic groups. Results are useful for informing practice and programs for victims of IPV and other vulnerable populations. 10

11 Workshop #8 Taking Care of Our Women Veterans Presenter: Juli McNeil, MSSW, LCSW (licensed in Oklahoma and Texas) VISN 17 Lead Women Veterans Program Manager/Clinical Administrative Officer to Chief Medical Officer, Department of Veterans Affairs, VISN 17 This session will provide up-to-date information to increase awareness and knowledge of Veteran issues.

Participants will increase their knowledge of military/veteran culture, the unique healthcare needs and biopsychosocial issues our women Veterans face. VA Services, benefits and resources will also be provided to increase knowledge among participants to best help their clients. Workshop #9 Utilizing a Trauma Perspective in Treating Partners of Sexual Addicts Presenter: Julie Likins, LCSW Sexual addiction has become a prominent issue in our current culture. For years, the partners of sexual addicts have been treated as co-addicts. An alternative, evidence-based model for the treatment of partners views the partner as someone who has experienced a traumatic event and will benefit from treatment from a trauma perspective. Workshop #10 Working Effectively with Families Formed through Adoption and Foster Care Kimberly L. Peck, MSW, LCSW Andrea Caplinger, MSW, LCSW A child joining a family through adoption and/or foster care has experienced levels of loss and trauma that require insightful interventions to address their complex needs. Theraplay is an emerging, interactive and playful approach that can assist professionals and parents in meeting these unique needs. Theraplay can help professionals and parent s effectively love and care for a child with an experience of early loss, trauma, abuse and neglect by providing an understanding of brain development, the neurochemistry of fear and attachment theory. This presentation will focus on the assumptions, core concepts and four dimensions of Theraplay that will allow professionals working with foster and adoptive children to further their understanding of the importance of deep connections within the parent-child relationship so as to create a healing environment. This presentation will discuss the importance of the development of the internal affect regulating system, and how that is done in the parent-child dyad. This introduction to Theraplay will provide practical day-to-day strategies for professionals who work with children who have experienced early harm. This model focuses on the needs of the whole child as it relates to their most important relationships by considering their past experiences and present state, so the child will have the best opportunity for a stable future. It is our desire to share this cutting edge information with other Social Workers in Oklahoma, so we can effectively provide children the treatment and informed care they so deserve. 11

12 Workshop #11 Suicide Prevention at the VA Juanita M. Celie, LCSW, BCD Selonda M. Moseley, LCSW (OKC VA) The session will address national and local suicide data regarding veterans as well as current suicide prevention initiatives. It will also outline key elements of a suicide risk assessment, safety planning, suicide nomenclature and their implementation. The Joint Commission has developed National Patient Safety Goals that requires an ongoing assessment of suicide risk and distribution of emergency crisis hotlines. The VA along with the Department of Defense has developed VA/DOD Clinical Practice Guidelines which outlines standard of care issues in the management and treatment of suicidal veterans. This presentation will cover key aspects of those guidelines. Workshop#12 Road-to-Independence Network: Improving Youth Outcomes Alisa West Cahill, LSW-Admin Susan Kee, MSW Rachel Dorset, BSW Road-to-Independence (RTI) is a federally funded grant seeking to reduce homelessness among youth with child welfare experience. This session will focus on the use of policy and practice to empower local communities and the state to further develop service capacities and the collaborative and data driven RTI program design. In October 2013, the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) was awarded a two-year planning grant through the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to further strengthen the capacity of state and local systems to prevent long-term homelessness among at-risk youth with child welfare experience. The Road to Independence (RTI) Network has been created to develop evidenced based approaches to reducing or eliminating homelessness among these youth. RTI will additionally focus on improving outcomes in the domains of education, employment, positive permanent connections, and emotional-social well-being. Tulsa and Oklahoma City metropolitan areas have been selected to pilot the RTI concept. 12

13 Workshop#13 Social Work Interventions in Primary Care: SBIRT to Integration Frannie Pryor, MSW, LCSW, LADC Behavioral Health Consultant Community Health Centers, Inc. Dane Libert, MSW, LCSW Senior Screening Consultant Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Traci Bartley Young, MSW, LCSW Primary Care Social Worker OU Physicians Carving behavioral health and person centered care back into the fabric of the medical model is the challenge facing a new breed of social worker. This session presents the experience of three primary care social workers pioneering the practice of behavioral health consulting within primary care settings. This presentation will include a discussion of public health centers, retail health care, clinic flow, introduce the topic of a warm hand off and learn ways that social workers can both intervene and support patients struggling with substance use issues. Workshop#14 Palliative Care: Social Worker Roles and Responsibilities Dr. Jeff Alderman Medical Director, Sooner Health Access Network (HAN) Rebeka McRad, LCSW Care Coordinator, Sooner Health Access Network (HAN) In this interactive session, participants will receive an overview of pertinent legislation and medical knowledge about palliative care in Oklahoma, and we will examine a case study, referring to social work ethical standards as well as participants field experiences for insight in the decision-making process for social work interventions where palliative care is a central issue. Palliative care is typically defined as providing relief without curing, although at times it can be offered in conjunction with curative treatments. The primary focus will be a discussion of end-oflife concerns. However, pain management is included in palliative care in its broader definition, and we will spend time discussing social workers roles in this subspecialty as well. Workshop#15 (Part 1 & 2) Chicks Aren't Chicken: Play Therapy Techniques to Empower Girls Presenter: Dr. Sharolyn Wallace, PhD, LCSW, RPT-S This workshop is designed to address key issues facing girls such as body image, bullying, sexting, eating disorders, and teen pregnancy. Play therapy techniques will be presented in an experiential modality. CBT, Gestalt, and Adlerian theoretical modalities with specific play therapy techniques will be presented. 13

14 Workshop#16 Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Awareness Training: The Frontlines of Mental Illness, Substance Abuse, Co-Occurring, & Traumatic Treatment Bonita Little, MAMFT, LADC/MH, LMFT President, NAMI OKC Metro, Inc. Robert Nash, Captain, Retired OCPD, BA in Police Admin from the University of Oklahoma. Sgt. Kim Holmes, OCPD BA in Health Promotion and a BSN in Nursing, MA in Health Promotion and an MSN in Nursing as an Acute Care Clinical Nurse Specialist, licensed as an Advanced Practice Nurse with prescriptive authority, Acute Care Registered Nurse, Certified Emergency Nurse and Certified Flight Registered Nurse Sgt. Lori Osborn, OCPD CIT Trainer for Academy Recruits and CIS Trainer Law enforcement and health officials estimate up to 20 percent of police calls involve people having a mental health crisis, everything from schizophrenia to post traumatic stress disorder. CIT programs are police-based jail diversion programs to prevent the arrest and incarceration of persons with mental illness, intellectual and developmental disabilities and/or substance use problems for minor crimes. Instead, the idea is to divert them to treatment when this can be done at little risk to public safety. Citizens/mental health professionals who call police to respond to someone who's in crisis can specifically ask for a CIT-trained police officer. Workshop#17 Key Developments in Health Care in Oklahoma Presenter: Carly Putnam Policy analyst, Oklahoma Policy Institute The session will allow attendees to gain a better understanding of changes within the health care system in Oklahoma in recent years. Some of the greatest changes have involved low-income Oklahomans. By discussing the topic from patient, provider, and structural perspectives, this presentation will allow attendees to gain a better understanding of the ways in which Oklahomans interact with health care systems and how health care systems interact with them. Workshop#18 The Arts and Artists of Homelessness: Fostering Creativity through Arts- Informed Social Work Practice Presenter: Kathryn A. Rawdon Knee Scholar; MSW Graduate Student, Knee Center for Strong Families, Anne & Henry Zarrow School of Social Work; Homeless Alliance fresh start Studio This session will examine positive effects of arts engagement for adults experiencing homelessness, and how an art studio embedded in a human service organization can foster protective factors including increased self-esteem and selfworth, release of anger and frustration, and bonding with a community of artists from similar circumstances. 14

15 Workshop#19 An Overview of Oklahoma City VA Medical Center Social Work Presence and Services Erin Koos, MSW, LCSW, LADC SAC-OTP Social Worker, OKC VA Medical Center Amber Ward, MSW, LCSW, MPA Veterans Justice Outreach Specialist Michele Diesselhorst-Reese, MSW, LCSW, CCM OEF OIF OND Program Manager Juanita Celie, MSW, LCSW Suicide Prevention Coordinator Angela Dickson, MSW, LCSW Medical Social Worker Social workers from the OKC VAMC will discuss the significant social work presence at the VA, social work roles and services, VA resources, and application/ eligibility for veterans for VA services.

Workshop#20 Bringing Local Food to Low-Income Tables in Oklahoma Dr. Karen A. Gray, PhD Associate Professor, University of Oklahoma-Tulsa Marianna S.

We will also discuss current efforts to take the double food stamps program statewide to eight other farmers markets. And we will explain CSFM s newest programs: a food hub and incubator kitchen. Workshop#21 The Brain Quadrant: Interaction Between Drugs and Mental Illness Presenter: S. Ivan Lopes, LPC, LDAC The Brain Quadrant efficiently demonstrates how drug abuse/addiction can mimic psychiatric symptoms- mental illness. The presence of chemical substance in the brain caused by self-medication, illicit drug use, are usually the cause of psychiatric symptoms surfacing. The presence of chemical substance abuse negatively affecting brain function is known as co-occurring disorder. The co-occurring population is the most common in all levels of care and to understand such a condition is imperative for all those working in the helping profession nowadays. 15
