The Ethics of Authentic Connections and Healing Boundaries Laura Hinds, MSW, LCSW February 21, 2024, 1:00pm-3:00pm EST COURSE DESCRIPTION For many of us, Ethics and Boundaries have been taught, or interpreted, as walls of disconnection between providers and those they serve.

This conversation supports us in clarifying the definitions and applications of ethics and boundaries that can protect AND promote the health and well-being of those we serve. LEARNING OBJECTIVES List the examples of how ethics inform appropriate and strong boundaries in our work relationships with clients who experience Substance Use Disorder. Identify how the historic instruction on ethics and boundaries and how that teaching threatens clinical engagement and client outcomes. Name 5 ways a provider can hold appropriate and ethical boundaries. PRESENTERS Laura Hinds, MSW, LCSW, is a clinical social worker with experience in medical, behavioral and mental health settings.  Laura has had the pleasure of working with high acuity special needs populations and their providers for over 22 years.  An alumna and instructor at Penn’s School of Social Policy and Practice for 13 years, and Bryn Mawr’s School of Social Work and Social Research’s for the past 4 years, Laura has supported the learning and education of new social workers, veterans in the field, and their interdisciplinary partners.  With a focus on trauma, human and gender development, racial equity, and crisis intervention Laura supports special needs populations and those who serve them.

Project planning is a multi-faceted and dynamic step in the prevention implementation process, one that can set the stage for continued success and sustainability. Without a robust and agile plan, implementation and sustainability can be negatively impacted, potentially putting a project at risk. This important step goes beyond using the data gathered from community, and ethical analysis of that data. From including a diverse set of voices and experiences, to balancing funder expectations and community defined outcomes, project planning requires a critical lens to ensure ethical practices and equity are embedded throughout. In this session of the series, we will explore various examples of practical planning processes and practices which can have tremendous positive implications for the communities we serve. Webinar Objectives After attending, each participant will be able to: Understand the value of purposefully seeking and leveraging a diverse set of experiences, types of expertise and community defined outcomes in the planning process. Explore examples of successful projects using an equity lens. Learn the difference between representation and inclusion in ethical and equitable planning.
