    "Real Talk", a clinical consultation/support group developed with the oversight of the CSCSW's Diversity, Equity and Transformation (DET) Committee, the purpose of which is to provide a space for clinical social workers who identify as being Black, Indigenous, Mixed Race, or Person of Color (BIPOC) to meet on a monthly basis. The focus of this group is to provide an opportunity for networking, building solidarity, exploring intersectionality and decolonizing our practice. The group will be initially co-facilitated by Jaya Roy, M.S., ASW, and Amanda Lee, LCSW; however, once the group has been established, the goal is to transition to a peer-facilitated format.

    This group is FREE for all CSCSW members, donations to CSCSW or the JAF Scholarship Fund are welcome. 

    Please note that this group does NOT provide supervision to its members and no CEU’s are offered.

     ABOUT THE WORKSHOP


    Presenter: Wanda Jewell, MSW, PhD, LCSW

    This presentation will focus on the hallmark of our work with clients, the clinical relationship, and will be especially helpful to students, ASWs, and seasoned professionals who may feel a need for a refresher. 

    Description: The therapeutic relationship is the rapport between the clinician and the client. It’s a collaborative agreement based on trust, respect, and empathy. Rapport building in therapeutic relationships is a necessary set of steps in helping people create insight and lasting change. With the popularity of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other manualized treatment, there seems to be a lack of emphasis on these essential clinical skills. This workshop will cover these basic skills. We will also discuss the four elements that characterize psychodynamic work, for example, working with the client’s defenses. Together, we will cover the essentials of creating rapport and how to weave in cognitive techniques.

    Questions for discussion:

    • Are psychodynamic and CBT techniques compatible?
    • What are ways to promote positive outcomes in clinical work?
    • What is integrity in practice?

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Define clinical social work.
    2. List the essential elements of creating therapeutic rapport.
    3. Refresh understanding of clinical work through a brief review of relational skill.
    4. Identify ways to create a practical mixture of psychodynamic therapy and CBT or other manualized treatments for the benefit of clients.
