Your Nevada Chapter presents:


Student-Initiated Confrontation in Social Work Education: The Effective Management of Confrontational Behaviors Initiated by Students

Date: Monday, June 10 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm CST (12 pm - 2:00 pm PST)

Speaker: Thalia S. Anderen, PhD, MSW, LCSW, RCSW

Description: Over the past three decades, there is mounting evidence to suggest that post-secondary educators, including social work educators, are experiencing increasingly concerning behaviors initiated by students both inside and outside the classroom environment. These behaviors can range from incidental rude and disruptive behaviors to more intentional ongoing aggressive and threatening behaviors. This interactive workshop is designed for social work educators or those interested in teaching in the future and will provide an overview of the prevalence of student-initiated confrontational behaviors initiated towards social work educators, SIC's personal and professional impacts, the types of situations educators may encounter, and prevention and mitigation strategies to help educators feel more prepared, validated, and empowered. This workshop also offers a valuable contribution to a broader conversation about the need to develop a pedagogy of teaching about teaching at the post-secondary social work level.

CEUs: 2.0 CEUs / $30 Nonmember / $10 NASW Member

Virtual Platform: Zoom

Reflections on Mandated Reporting

Date: Thursday, June 27 from 11:00am to 12:30pm CST (9am - 10:30am PST)

Speaker: Kimberly A. Mann, PhD, LCSW (she/her)

Description: This 90-minute course is designed for mandated reporters as defined by the Illinois Abused and Neglect Child Reporting Act (ANCRA) and fulfills current IDFPR requirements for a mandated reporter training with implicit bias section. Determinations to make a report to the Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline are complex and challenging for the professionals obligated to promote the safety of children. Unfortunately, our professional decision-making can be compromised by attitudes and beliefs that influence our perception of information that we learn within our professional capacity. Racial bias contributes to the persistent problem of racial disproportionality in the child welfare system. As we build our reflective capacity, our awareness of bias strengthens and can be used to enhance professional decision-making.

CEUs: 1.5 CEUs (Fulfills Illinois requirement for Mandated Reporter with Section on Implicit Bias CEU) / $23 Nonmember/ $10 NASW Member

Virtual Platform: Zoom
