    3 Cultural Competence CEUs

    The word “cancer” invokes many reactions, biases, and behaviors which may complicate a student's return to school. With the proper awareness of the unique challenges these students face social workers can ease the transition back to school and help to create a supportive environment of growth. This workshop will focus on medical issues, school accommodations, and school reentry program ideas that address school personnel and classmate adjustment concerns while opening communication about cancer. Demonstration resources will cover elementary grades through high school.

    5 Clinical CEUs

    The most common reason veterans enter treatment is related to their discomfort with their anger. It is a problematical behavior that the veteran has little insight into. PTSD anger interferes with every area of the veteran’s functioning, from occupational problems and interactions in the community, to family life and parenting. Traditional anger management programs do not usually assist the veteran with understanding the link between trauma, the combat experience and anger. This workshop will explore this link and explain how understanding it is critical to managing anger and improving functioning.
