Workshop for the Helping Professionals Will Focus on Technology and Social Media

The final Friday Lunch & Learn workshop for behavioral health care providers for the 2011/2012 year will focus on the effective use of technology, especially social media, when working with clients. Marygrove College professor Dr. Fayetta Martin will lead participants through an examination of this this cutting edge issue facing anyone who works in the helping professions. The workshop, Technology, Social Media and Social Work will be held Friday, May 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the Marygrove campus.

Should we accept friend requests from clients on Facebook? Should I have a web-page? How do we keep our session notes secure? Social workers and other behavioral health care workers face these questions and more every day. In fact, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) has had to issue a revision to their ethical guidelines regarding technology recently. Are you being left behind? Technology is moving forward; this workshop will help you use it more effectively.

This workshop will be held in the e-classroom in the Library at Marygrove College, costs just $69 ($20 for Marygrove faculty, staff, and students), and like all of our workshops, is eligible for Michigan Social Work Continuing Education Collaborative (MSWCEC) and Michigan Board of Addiction Professionals (MCBAP) continuing education hours (5). Lunch and parking are included.
