Dr. Rachel Guimond, LSW, DSW, from Olivet Nazerene University will be returning in May. She'll be discussing Deathics, which will count towards required ethics credit. More details about the date, time and location to come. 
Seminar Description: Death challenges every social worker to examine their own values within the context of the NASW’s Code of Ethics, and causes professionals to make difficult decisions. This seminar is designed to tackle issues like: managing personal anxiety about death, expressing cultural competence when making end-of-life choices, carrying out advanced directives, and handling requests for assistance with suicide. Through the use of case examples, exercises, and group discussions, social workers with any level of experience will feel more comfortable facing the challenges of working with a dying client. There will be a special focus on managing professional grief.
