Cultural competency skills are essential components of successful interventions with individuals, families and communities across the life course. Furthermore, a key component of palliative and hospice care is the effectiveness and compassionate ways in which social workers are able to incorporate cultural preferences and concordance practices. This webinar provides participants knowledge and understanding of the revised NASW Standards and Indicators for Cultural Competence in Social Work Practice. This session will examine the challenges and complexities of culturally competent practice and identify opportunities for improving care until the end of life.
This course will assist participants in understanding variations in non-monogamous and polyamorous relationship structures, in order to enhance their therapeutic skills when working with individuals and relationships that are not traditionally monogamous. Participants will be guided to deconstruct their existing views on non-monogamy before learning about the various options for non-monogamous and polyamorous relationship structures. The differences between ethical non-monogamy and non-ethical cheating/infidelity will be discussed and understood within the context of working with individuals navigating relationships. Participants will learn about common challenges of non-monogamy and polyamory, and will enhance the therapeutic skills necessary to work effectively with non-monogamous and poly individuals/relationships.
