You don't need to enrol in a certificate course to take advantage of the engaging professional development opportunities available through the Faculty of Social Work. We offer a wide range of workshops to suit a variety of fields and interests.
Interested in a topic not covered by one of our workshops? Customized training is also available.
This workshop provides a venue for you to further extend your therapeutic skills for single session therapeutic contexts. We begin with exploration of our practice ethics and ways to navigate the tensions and pulls in working in such time constraint – when must we 'lean in,' how do we resist colonizing practices? Working with segments of transcript, scenario discussions and video review we will explore options for proceeding amidst various levels of complexity. Specifically, participants will have the time to practice conversation options amidst trauma conversations and through a re-conceptualization of 'crisis.' The practice of counter-storying will be introduced as a means to address the effects of negative identity conclusions that keep people mired in their distress. We will also explore a quality assurance/outcome measure that holds us accountable to our practice intentions and further informs our own professional growth.
You can take any of the courses associated with our certificates without working towards the full program. Learn more about the certificates we offer.
We also provide customized training solutions delivered right to you, saving your organization time and money. We will work with your agency, organization or association to provide your staff or members with a professional development program that meets your unique needs.
