E&B WEBINAR: Ethics, Boundaries, and Technology in a Post-Covid World

Presented by Debra Minsky-Kelly, MSW, LCSW
Debra Minsky Kelly

Workshop summary: The effects of technology on social work practice since the onset of the pandemic have been enormous. Out of necessity, many providers rushed to adopt technology-assisted practices in an effort to continue to provide care to those in need. What have we learned from these practice changes? Are the 2018 changes to the Social Work Code of Ethics adequate to address modern practice challenges? This workshop will explore these critical questions and will also examine some of the specific boundary-related issues that arise in technology-assisted practice. In addition, as the evidence mounts regarding the harmful effects of technology on mental health, relationships, and community wellbeing, we will ask critical questions regarding the role of our profession in addressing these concerns.

WEBINAR: Advancing Active Social Justice Allyship in Social Work Through Social Empathy and Political Engagement

February 7th, 2024, Noon - 1 PM CST

NASWWI Chapter 0 922

Presented by Elizabeth Kiehne, PhD, MSW + Quinn Hafen, MSW
Elizabeth Kiehne Quinn Hafen
The preamble to the NASW Code of Ethics states, “Social workers are sensitive to cultural and ethnic diversity and strive to end discrimination, oppression, poverty, and other forms of social injustice” (NASW, 2021, para. 2). In order to meet these ideals, social workers must have not only interpersonal empathy but social empathy. This webinar will unpack what social empathy is, why social empathy is critical in social work, and how we can build our own social empathy. Particular attention in this webinar will be given to how social workers with socially advantaged identities, and especially white-identifying social workers, can cultivate social empathy to promote a practice of allyship that is authentic, critically self-reflective, and action-rooted. Participants will leave with concrete examples of what social empathy in action looks like; how to engage in accountable and mindful allyship behaviors; and strategies social workers can use to align our actions with our intentions. Continued learning resources will be provided to support social workers on their life-long journeys toward greater anti-oppressiveness. The webinar draws on findings from a recent study published in Social Work Research entitled, “Advancing Active Allyship for Social Justice: Cross-Group Friendships, Social Empathy, and Political Engagement” (Kiehne & Hafen, 2022).
