From the Pen of NASW-Nevada Board President;

Rebecca Rogers, Ph.D., LMSW, M.Ed.

 

Hello NASW-NV members,

 

It is my honor and pleasure to serve as your next board president, and I welcome the opportunity to lead our organization into the future. As an active, engaged member since 2003, I’ve leaned into the wealth of professional resources, leadership opportunities, advocacy work, learning, and relationship building that NASW provides. I’ve served on various committees and been a board member in several roles since 2004 as well, including most recently that of Board Secretary (2019-2021).

 

I have worked as a licensed social worker in Nevada since 2001, with experience across all age groups and disciplines. I’ve been inspired by this work since my first encounter with a caring social worker who was a fierce advocate for my own family when we needed one. To this day, advocacy factors as a central component of my professional and personal life. Every day, I advocate for the needs of students who struggle to find their own pathways and access the right resources. Through my work at the Center for Academic Enrichment and Outreach (The Center) as director of UNLV GEAR UP, I provide leadership, guidance, and resources on post-secondary options to underrepresented youth in Clark County.

 

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from Southern Illinois University. I’m also a two-time alumnus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, earning a Master’s in Social Work in 2005 and my Ph. D in Workforce Development and Organizational Leadership in 2018. In 2018, I was also appointed to the Nevada State Rehabilitation Council by the governor to serve as a Disability Advocate. I was reappointed in December 2022, and still serve in this role. The combination of my education, professional experience, and personal commitment will allow me to bring a unique perspective to this position to move our chapter forward.

 

During my term as board president, I promise you three things: honesty, integrity, and transparency. My focus will be to increase our strategic partnerships, leverage our relationships with our universities, and work to increase our membership. We have work to do to attract and sustain engagement within our membership. Once we have ALL hands on deck, we will be unstoppable!

 

I am passionate about supporting our community and doing what I can to advocate for those in need, both here in Nevada and beyond. Thank you for trusting me, I don't take this lightly! We are a team; let's continue the work that needs to be done!!  

 

Rebecca S. Rogers, Ph.D

Board President

NASW-Nevada Hosted Education:

'Free Chol Soo Lee' Film Screening and Discussion

 

Date: Tuesday, August 15th, at 6pm PT

 

Venue: The Beverly,

 

Sponsored by: Nevada Coalition Against the Death Penalty (NASW-NV is a member of the NCADP) 

 

Description: The documentary follows Chol Soo Lee, who was wrongfully convicted of one murder, and then sentenced to death for a self-defense killing while he was in prison. The documentary follows the investigation, conviction, and then release of Chol Soo Lee, and how the Asian American community was galvanized into organizing around the case. This is an important story about our legal system, re-entry into the community after release from prison, and is an example of Asian American political activism.

 

Presenters: Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with Senator Rochelle Nguyen; David Kakishiba, one of the activists involved in the case; and Professor Stewart Chang, moderated by NVCADP's very own, Randy Fiedler.

 

Cost: 2 CEUs - $12.00 per ticket. NASW-NV is not charging for the CEU certificate for this event.

 

SPECIAL NOTE: To acquire CEUs for this event you must sign in at the event AND complete a survey provided by email from the NASW-NV Chapter

 

Step 1: Purchase your 12.00 film ticket: https://www.thebeverlytheater.com/shows-details?id=318913

Step 2: Email the NASW-NV Chapter that you have purchased a ticket and will be attending. Email us at admin.naswnv@socialworkers.org

Beyond Self-Care: Tending to the Wounded Healer

 

Date: Friday, September 15th, at 10 am PT

 

Venue: Zoom

 

Description: In this field, we are encouraged to practice self-care, but not often encouraged to take a deeper look at what comprises “wellness” and what gets in the way. Professionals are expected to know the latest evidenced-based tools to support clients, but are we practicing what we preach? This is not a fluffy self-care seminar, but rather a call to action designed to challenge participants to step into their own healing with courage. This seminar will invite participants to reflect on their own self-care, their relationship to the larger socio-political landscape, and how each of these areas impacts client outcomes.

 

Presenter: Sarah Buino is a speaker, teacher, therapist, and the founder of the group therapy practice Head/Heart Therapy and consulting organization Head/Heart Business Therapy. She is a member of the adjunct faculty at Loyola University Chicago.

 

Sarah hosts the podcast Conversations With a Wounded Healer which examines the role of one’s own healing while being a care-giving professional.

NASW Observes Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Month

Denise Johnson, LCSW-C, Senior Practice Associate, Clinical Social Work

The month of June is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month, and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) acknowledges the important role social workers play in treating individuals and families impacted by PTSD.

 

According to recent statistics from the National Center for PTSD, approximately 5% of adults in the United States experience PTSD in any given year. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) acknowledges the important role social workers play in treating individuals and families impacted by PTSD.

Nev. bills address medical aid in dying, trans care

Nevada's Senate has approved a measure that would establish criteria, including a terminal illness and fewer than six months to live, to determine who would be eligible for medication to help end their lives. Separate bills in the state would bolster care for transgender people, requiring insurers to pay for treatment related to gender dysphoria and mandating that the Department of Corrections create regulations on the security, supervision, and care of incarcerated people who are trans or gender non-conforming. Full Story: KUNR-FM (Reno, Nev.) (4/21) 

 

HHS steps up efforts to protect patients' privacy

The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a regulation to prohibit states' actions "to investigate, sue, or prosecute an individual, a health care provider, or a loved one because that person sought, obtained, provided, or facilitated legal reproductive health care, including abortion." The move is among several designed to enshrine privacy rights in laws such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Full Story: The Hill (4/12) 

 

Federal data show an increase in the US suicide rate

National Center for Health Statistics data indicates that the US suicide rate rose in 2021 after declining over the previous two years, and death by suicide among men increased across most age groups, with more in 2021 than in the previous two decades. The rate for men was 22.8 deaths per 100,000 people -- about four times higher than the rate for women -- but women were more likely to report suicidal thoughts and make nonfatal suicide attempts. Full Story: The Wall Street Journal (4/11),  WFXT-TV (Dedham, Mass.)

 

Governments face challenges in push to hire social workers

State and local governments are ramping up efforts to hire social workers who can address the mental health and social justice issues affecting communities, but it will likely remain a challenge to fill roles quickly. "There's definitely a demand for social workers, but salary structures are still not great. There's not enough policy-level funding to fit the need," says Nancy Smyth of the University at Buffalo's School of Social Work. Full Story: Fortune (tiered subscription model) (4/11)

LGBTQ+ Equity, Diversity, Inclusion: “Somewhere” Over the Rainbow"

The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people.

The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people who do not “fit” within the traditional heteronormative binaries as health disparate populations. SGM experience significantly higher rates of mood, anxiety, and behavioral/substance use disorders, suicidality among other mental health issues. Emerging evidence indicates that SGM also have significantly higher rates of some chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes. In this presentation, Dr. Hoy-Ellis will share how past and ongoing marginalization, exclusion, and discrimination are the ‘causes of these health conditions through the framework of the Health Equity Promotion Model. He will also offer key strategies for providing culturally sensitive, effective services for SGM, from adolescence through older adulthood.

Cultural Diversity, Cultural Competence, and Ethical Social Work Practice

The United States of the 21st century is a patchwork land of many cultures: racial, ethnic, religious, geographic, gender, age, and even physical status. Each culture has its own worldview, relationship guidelines, family structure, spiritual mindsets, and values. In their work, social workers inevitably encounter persons from cultures different from their own, and these differences can be challenging obstacles to effective, ethical practice.

The values of the profession, as articulated in the NASW Code of Ethics, ask us to honor the dignity and worth of our clients, to respect their autonomy, and to practice competently. The ethical mandate of competence includes what has been called “Cultural Competence”.

We will address the idea that some situations may make ethical competence impractical or impossible, and approaches to these situations. We will also address the benefit, when working cross-culturally, of maintaining an attitude of humility and interest in other cultures.

Civic Engagement as a Social Work Intervention: Where Macro Meets Micro

Did you know research has confirmed civic engagement to be a social determinant of health? Moreover, social workers are urged by the NASW’s Code of Ethics to engage in social and political action to ensure better social conditions that provide equity and justice. A simple way to do this is to utilize civic engagement and voter registration as an intervention and prevention tool. This presentation will explore the evidence supporting civic engagement as a social determinant of health; prepare social workers for the critical role they play in improving the outcomes of clients through civic engagement; and provide tools that can be easily integrated into all practice settings.

 

Date: July 26, 2023, 12:00 PM Pacific Time

 

Venue: Zoom 

 

Presenter: Chelsea White-Hoglen is a social worker with more than a decade of passionate leadership in community organizing. Chelsea describes her work as collective healing, leveraging evidence-based healing practices to facilitate transformative relationships and deep democracy. She currently works with Vot-ER, where she supports health professionals across the nation to amplify the voices of their underserved and underrepresented community members and to incorporate civic engagement into their practice.

Separate bills in the state would bolster care for transgender people, requiring insurers to pay for treatment related to gender dysphoria and mandating that the Department of Corrections create regulations on the security, supervision, and care of incarcerated people who are trans or gender non-conforming. Full Story: KUNR-FM (Reno, Nev.) (4/21) 

 

HHS steps up efforts to protect patients' privacy

The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a regulation to prohibit states' actions "to investigate, sue, or prosecute an individual, a health care provider, or a loved one because that person sought, obtained, provided, or facilitated legal reproductive health care, including abortion." The move is among several designed to enshrine privacy rights in laws such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Full Story: The Hill (4/12) 

 

Federal data show an increase in the US suicide rate

National Center for Health Statistics data indicates that the US suicide rate rose in 2021 after declining over the previous two years, and death by suicide among men increased across most age groups, with more in 2021 than in the previous two decades. The rate for men was 22.8 deaths per 100,000 people -- about four times higher than the rate for women -- but women were more likely to report suicidal thoughts and make nonfatal suicide attempts. Full Story: The Wall Street Journal (4/11),  WFXT-TV (Dedham, Mass.)

 

Governments face challenges in push to hire social workers

State and local governments are ramping up efforts to hire social workers who can address the mental health and social justice issues affecting communities, but it will likely remain a challenge to fill roles quickly. "There's definitely a demand for social workers, but salary structures are still not great. There's not enough policy-level funding to fit the need," says Nancy Smyth of the University at Buffalo's School of Social Work. Full Story: Fortune (tiered subscription model) (4/11)

LGBTQ+ Equity, Diversity, Inclusion: “Somewhere” Over the Rainbow"

The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people.

The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people who do not “fit” within the traditional heteronormative binaries as health disparate populations. SGM experience significantly higher rates of mood, anxiety, and behavioral/substance use disorders, suicidality among other mental health issues. Emerging evidence indicates that SGM also have significantly higher rates of some chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes. In this presentation, Dr. Hoy-Ellis will share how past and ongoing marginalization, exclusion, and discrimination are the ‘causes of these health conditions through the framework of the Health Equity Promotion Model. He will also offer key strategies for providing culturally sensitive, effective services for SGM, from adolescence through older adulthood.

Cultural Diversity, Cultural Competence, and Ethical Social Work Practice

The United States of the 21st century is a patchwork land of many cultures: racial, ethnic, religious, geographic, gender, age, and even physical status. Each culture has its own worldview, relationship guidelines, family structure, spiritual mindsets, and values. In their work, social workers inevitably encounter persons from cultures different from their own, and these differences can be challenging obstacles to effective, ethical practice.

The values of the profession, as articulated in the NASW Code of Ethics, ask us to honor the dignity and worth of our clients, to respect their autonomy, and to practice competently. The ethical mandate of competence includes what has been called “Cultural Competence”.

We will address the idea that some situations may make ethical competence impractical or impossible, and approaches to these situations. We will also address the benefit, when working cross-culturally, of maintaining an attitude of humility and interest in other cultures.

Civic Engagement as a Social Work Intervention: Where Macro Meets Micro

Did you know research has confirmed civic engagement to be a social determinant of health? Moreover, social workers are urged by the NASW’s Code of Ethics to engage in social and political action to ensure better social conditions that provide equity and justice. A simple way to do this is to utilize civic engagement and voter registration as an intervention and prevention tool. This presentation will explore the evidence supporting civic engagement as a social determinant of health; prepare social workers for the critical role they play in improving the outcomes of clients through civic engagement; and provide tools that can be easily integrated into all practice settings.

 

Date: July 26, 2023, 12:00 PM Pacific Time

 

Venue: Zoom 

 

Presenter: Chelsea White-Hoglen is a social worker with more than a decade of passionate leadership in community organizing.

NASW Observes Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Month

Denise Johnson, LCSW-C, Senior Practice Associate, Clinical Social Work

The month of June is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month, and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) acknowledges the important role social workers play in treating individuals and families impacted by PTSD.

 

According to recent statistics from the National Center for PTSD, approximately 5% of adults in the United States experience PTSD in any given year. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) acknowledges the important role social workers play in treating individuals and families impacted by PTSD.

Legislative calendar: 120 Day Calendar 2023 Legislative Session

 

Bills that passed out of the first committee:

 

creates a maximum fair price for 10 specific pharmaceutical drugs. This follows in accordance with the Inflation Reduction Act and efforts to establish maximum fair prices for Medicare recipients. AB250 will make these maximum prices apply to all Nevadans, rather than just those 65 and older. The ten drugs will be established this coming fall and maximum fair prices will be determined and go into effect in 2026. Nevada will follow the same timeline.  

would amend the Nevada constitution to ensure every individual in Nevada has a fundamental right to reproductive freedom. This includes protections to access abortion, contraception, and procedures such as vasectomies and tubal ligations. 

would protect Nevada doctors who provide abortions and reproductive care to out-of-state women from potential criminal proceedings initiated by other states in which abortion care is illegal. This would also give protection to patients traveling from out of state who seek abortion care in Nevada. 

provides tax abatements, similar to those given for large businesses, to providers of mental and behavioral health for children. This is an experimental measure to incentivize facilities and providers to move to Nevada, despite low reimbursement rates. 

would establish the Behavioral Health Workforce Development Center of Nevada at higher education institutions and allow the Board of Regents to accept, receive, invest, and disperse any funds received for purposes related to the center. 

would require the tribal liaison to maintain communication related to missing or murdered indigenous persons between the Department and certain entities. This bill would also require law enforcement to accept reports of missing persons from an Indian reservation or Indian colony. This bill was heard on March 6th and had a lot of support testimony. 

This bill makes several changes to how landlords are able to charge fees to prospective tenants. Requiring rental agreements to include a grace period for the late payment of rent; requiring a tenant to be served with advance notice of increases in certain fees, fines, and costs.

Existing law requires that tenants contesting a summary conviction must file an affidavit in court regarding an action for summary eviction before a landlord has to make any filing regarding the matter. If an affidavit is filed, then there is a hearing. Otherwise the courts, without holding a hearing, will order the removal of the tenant. AB 340 would create a new procedure for the summary eviction of certain tenants who have defaulted on their rent. The new procedures are mainly focused on the change in a written notice.

addresses Dillon’s Rule in Nevada and clarifies that the board of county commissioners or a governing body of an incorporated city has the ability to bring forward ordinances and measures that relate to affordable housing, including rent control.

 

 

  • To provide testimony on the phone, folks should call (888) 475-4499 any time after the Chair announces the period of support testimony. When prompted, provide

News to highlight!

Nev. bills address medical aid in dying, trans care

Nevada's Senate has approved a measure that would establish criteria, including a terminal illness and fewer than six months to live, to determine who would be eligible for medication to help end their lives. Separate bills in the state would bolster care for transgender people, requiring insurers to pay for treatment related to gender dysphoria and mandating that the Department of Corrections create regulations on the security, supervision, and care of incarcerated people who are trans or gender non-conforming. Full Story: KUNR-FM (Reno, Nev.) (4/21) 

 

HHS steps up efforts to protect patients' privacy

The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a regulation to prohibit states' actions "to investigate, sue, or prosecute an individual, a health care provider, or a loved one because that person sought, obtained, provided, or facilitated legal reproductive health care, including abortion." The move is among several designed to enshrine privacy rights in laws such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Full Story: The Hill (4/12) 

 

Federal data show an increase in the US suicide rate

National Center for Health Statistics data indicates that the US suicide rate rose in 2021 after declining over the previous two years, and death by suicide among men increased across most age groups, with more in 2021 than in the previous two decades. The rate for men was 22.8 deaths per 100,000 people -- about four times higher than the rate for women -- but women were more likely to report suicidal thoughts and make nonfatal suicide attempts. Full Story: The Wall Street Journal (4/11),  WFXT-TV (Dedham, Mass.)

 

Governments face challenges in push to hire social workers

State and local governments are ramping up efforts to hire social workers who can address the mental health and social justice issues affecting communities, but it will likely remain a challenge to fill roles quickly. "There's definitely a demand for social workers, but salary structures are still not great. There's not enough policy-level funding to fit the need," says Nancy Smyth of the University at Buffalo's School of Social Work. Full Story: Fortune (tiered subscription model) (4/11) 

Licensing changes coming in 2023:

Suicide Prevention: Black Youth Lives Matter Too!

LGBTQ+ Equity, Diversity, Inclusion: “Somewhere” Over the Rainbow"

The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people.

The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people who do not “fit” within the traditional heteronormative binaries as health disparate populations. SGM experience significantly higher rates of mood, anxiety, and behavioral/substance use disorders, suicidality among other mental health issues. Emerging evidence indicates that SGM also have significantly higher rates of some chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes. In this presentation, Dr. Hoy-Ellis will share how past and ongoing marginalization, exclusion, and discrimination are the ‘causes of these health conditions through the framework of the Health Equity Promotion Model. He will also offer key strategies for providing culturally sensitive, effective services for SGM, from adolescence through older adulthood.

Cultural Diversity, Cultural Competence, and Ethical Social Work Practice

The United States of the 21st century is a patchwork land of many cultures: racial, ethnic, religious, geographic, gender, age, and even physical status. Each culture has its own worldview, relationship guidelines, family structure, spiritual mindsets, and values. In their work, social workers inevitably encounter persons from cultures different from their own, and these differences can be challenging obstacles to effective, ethical practice.

The values of the profession, as articulated in the NASW Code of Ethics, ask us to honor the dignity and worth of our clients, to respect their autonomy, and to practice competently. The ethical mandate of competence includes what has been called “Cultural Competence”.

We will address the idea that some situations may make ethical competence impractical or impossible, and approaches to these situations. We will also address the benefit, when working cross-culturally, of maintaining an attitude of humility and interest in other cultures.

Often described as something “normal” and an experience that “many go through” imposter syndrome impacts women, women of color, and LGBTQ2IA individuals at disproportionate rates. In this workshop, we will do just that! Let’s stand in solidarity and discuss the impacts of racism, sexism, and colonialism on our feelings of inadequacy and belonging.

LGBTQ+ Equity, Diversity, Inclusion: “Somewhere” Over the Rainbow"

The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people.

The National Institutes of Health have designated sexual and gender minorities (SGM), also known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex, and other people who do not “fit” within the traditional heteronormative binaries as health disparate populations. SGM experience significantly higher rates of mood, anxiety, and behavioral/substance use disorders, suicidality among other mental health issues. Emerging evidence indicates that SGM also have significantly higher rates of some chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes. In this presentation, Dr. Hoy-Ellis will share how past and ongoing marginalization, exclusion, and discrimination are the ‘causes of these health conditions through the framework of the Health Equity Promotion Model. He will also offer key strategies for providing culturally sensitive, effective services for SGM, from adolescence through older adulthood.

Cultural Diversity, Cultural Competence, and Ethical Social Work Practice

The United States of the 21st century is a patchwork land of many cultures: racial, ethnic, religious, geographic, gender, age, and even physical status. Each culture has its own worldview, relationship guidelines, family structure, spiritual mindsets, and values. In their work, social workers inevitably encounter persons from cultures different from their own, and these differences can be challenging obstacles to effective, ethical practice.

The values of the profession, as articulated in the NASW Code of Ethics, ask us to honor the dignity and worth of our clients, to respect their autonomy, and to practice competently. The ethical mandate of competence includes what has been called “Cultural Competence”.

We will address the idea that some situations may make ethical competence impractical or impossible, and approaches to these situations. We will also address the benefit, when working cross-culturally, of maintaining an attitude of humility and interest in other cultures.

News to highlight!

Bill could boost affordable housing in Nev.

More affordable housing units could be built for Nevada residents with mental health conditions or disabilities, or who have lower incomes, under a bill that would raise the real property transfer tax by 20 cents for every $500 of value for building such housing. Because the legislation includes a tax increase, support from two-thirds of each of the state House and Senate would be required.Full Story: Nevada Current (Carson City) (1/19)

From the Pen of the Chapter Board President:

Greetings Nevada Social Workers,

 

 As we are quickly approaching seasonal change, we’re also looking at a post-covid world full of unique challenges and opportunities. The only certainty is uncertainty. As vital servants to society, social workers have the unique skill-sets to help others navigate changing environments.  Social work, as a strengths-based profession, puts the abilities of the individual and their inner-power to overcome above all else. That perspective combined with social worker education, experience, and training amply prepare us to help others in a volatile environment. 

 

My focus, during the second quarter of this year, will be to promote professional self-care. Working with our local board of directors, I hope to create opportunities to fellowship in-person and virtually, to exchange ideas for worker relaxation and decompression, and to increase our footprint and visibility as a go-to organization for Nevada Social Workers.

 

Please join me as we move from a generation of covid sufferers, to survivors, to champions.

 

Together we are invincible,

 

Victor

From the Pen of the Chapter Board President:

Greetings Nevada Social Workers,

 

 As we are quickly approaching seasonal change, we’re also looking at a post-covid world full of unique challenges and opportunities. The only certainty is uncertainty. As vital servants to society, social workers have the unique skill-sets to help others navigate changing environments.  Social work, as a strengths-based profession, puts the abilities of the individual and their inner-power to overcome above all else. That perspective combined with social worker education, experience, and training amply prepare us to help others in a volatile environment. 

 

My focus, during the second quarter of this year, will be to promote professional self-care. Working with our local board of directors, I hope to create opportunities to fellowship in-person and virtually, to exchange ideas for worker relaxation and decompression, and to increase our footprint and visibility as a go-to organization for Nevada Social Workers.

 

Please join me as we move from a generation of covid sufferers, to survivors, to champions.

 

Together we are invincible,

 

Victor
