Black Boys and Men: Changing the Narrative (1.5 clinical hrs)

Samuel R. Aymer, PhD

Dr. Aymer’s keynote focuses on the lived experiences of Black men and boys who must navigate the challenges of living in a hostile environment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain why it is important for practitioners to have a critical awareness of the dynamics and nuances of racist and unfair treatment in the United States
  • Explain how race-related trauma and stress can impact the lived experiences of Black males and boys in the United States

Therapeutic Considerations when Treating Men (1.5 clinical hrs)

Steve Olivas, PhD, HSP

Engaging with and treating men in therapy can be a difficult process, even under ideal circumstances. It is particularly challenging when they are externally motivated (“_____ told me I had to come see you”) or somewhat resistant (“It’s weird because I’ve never done this before…”). This seminar will break down the internal thought processes of many men and discuss the rational vs. emotional continuum. Finally, a special focus will be placed on engagement, analysis, and effective communication & treatment strategies.

Learning Objectives:
  • The participant will learn at least three concrete strategies for building therapeutic rapport with men in therapy.
  • The participant will learn at least three interventions to assist men struggling in romantic relationships.
  • The participant will learn basic coping strategies used by distressed men, and learn techniques to help them overcome and engage.

Mandatory Reporting of Child and Elder Abuse and Neglect (1 hr mandatory reporting)

Joseph T. Monahan, MSW, ACSW, JD

As social workers, we bear the responsibility of being mandated reporters, but are we always able to clearly identify which situations indicate the need for reporting and clearly explain “how to report”? This program addresses the processes and responsibilities associated with mandatory reporting.

Learning Objectives:
  • Have a clear definition of mandated reporting
  • Identify the indicators of abuse: physical, psychological, and financial, and how these affect children and the elderly population differently.
  • Identify barriers to mandated reporting and distinguish potential solutions to said barriers
  • Identify who REALLY has the responsibility for “mandated reporting” and how to “report”.
