Let's Look at the R-ace Card: "A Look at the Ethics of Race and Culture in the 21st Century Social Work Practice"
Fri 7:30am–12:00pm | 12/7 | $15 advance pay / $20 at the door | Class #5287 

This course will help us to recognize both the overt and subtle influence of race and culture on the therapeutic relationship as well as to help us explore the degrees of differentiation between the social worker and client. We will also explore challenges and develop potential solutions. (NASW CEU Approved)

Speaker: Judy Bookman, M.A., L.C.S.W.

  • Introduce concepts related to race relations and the impact of race relations upon social work practice
  • Identify race issues for the practitioner
  • Learn how to deal with race issues that may be latent in the practitioner or that may be inhibiting racial neutrality in the social worker’s practice and how to face these issues with caring and competence

If It's Not on Paper; It Never Happened: POA's Healthcare Powers and Guardianships
Monday, February 7 • 7:30–12:00pm • $15 in advance $20 at the Door • Class #5452
As the end of life issues approach, it is common to avoid dealing with problems until they are upon you or your client.
Even if the these issues have been discussed with loved ones, understanding powers of attorney, guardianship,
and other legal documents can be confusing. Honorable Kathy Gomes, Judge of the Probate Court of Shelby
County Tennessee, has over 30 years of practice as both attorney and as a Probate Judge.
She will untangle these thorny issues and answer questions too.
