About the Event
The Texas Society for Clinical Social Work presents
A Live, Interactive Webinar: To Be or Not To Be: LCSWs Returning to Office Psychotherapy
Target Audience: clinical social workers, mental health professionals
Content level: intermediate
This 3 ethics credit course was developed for clinical social work professionals. The course will help LCSWs determine when and how to safely return to our office practices, as we bounce back and forth between ‘opening up’ to in-person contacts and working through videoconferencing. This webinar will help participants make this complicated decision in these perilous times. Here is your chance to ask all the questions you have about making this challenging choice. There will be case discussions illustrating the way that videoconferencing has affected our patients and ourselves, the benefits and the risks.
About the instructor
Laura Groshong, LICSW, has been in clinical practice for the past 43 years. She was also a Registered Lobbyist in Washington for five mental health organizations for 25 years. She has been the Director of Policy and Practice for the Clinical Social Work Association nationally since 2006 and, through the Mental Health Liaison Group, worked on passage of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equality Act of 2008, the Affordable Care Act, and many other pieces of legislation that support and benefit LCSWs. Laura, a dynamic and engaging speaker, has written and lectured extensively on clinical and legislative issues around the country.
After participating in this Live, Interactive Webinar, participants will be able to:
• Understand the meaning for LCSWs and our patients of moving to videoconferencing
• Identify the issues that need to be considered to create a safe environment
• Determine whether moving back to an in-person practice is emotionally preferable to videoconferencing
• Understand the ethical issues that should be considered in returning to the office
