CEU Opportunities in May and June
Is your Social Worker or LPC license coming up for renewal?
Would you like to take an engaging & interactive workshop?
Do you wish you could take CEU courses relevant to your work?
I am offering two separate CEU opportunities in the upcoming weeks. Both workshops will take place at the Travis County TDFPS office at 14000 Summit in North Austin.
~ May 27 @ 6 – 9 PM ~
“Beyond a Safety Assessment: Clinical Issues in Kinship Care” was designed for professionals making placement decisions or recommendations for children in foster care. Specifically, this course will be extremely helpful to individuals who complete kinship placement home assessments, as well as CPS workers & supervisors, or CASA volunteers. We will talk about what kinship care looks like in Texas in 2010- and how it is changing. We will talk about some of the unique issues and challenges associated with being a kinship caregiver- because I believe it’s important to know who your client is. And we will talk about some of the important issues that are important to assess when considering a kinship caregiver- as well as how to identify any risks and then control for those risks (when possible).
~June 8 @ 6 – 9 PM~
“The Impact of Adoption” is an introductory look at how adoption impacts children and families throughout their lives. This workshop is appropriate for any mental health or social services professional interested in gaining some basic information about how adoption may be impacting your client. This course is also relevant for individuals who complete adoption home studies or make placement decisions, as you will be able to immediately apply what you learn in this workshop with your clients who are interested in becoming adoptive parents. This workshop may challenge your beliefs about birthfamilies and will encourage you to consider the benefits and risks associated with open adoptions. We will also look at what the spectrum of “openness” can mean, particularly with regard to parents who have involuntarily lost their parental rights.
