Carly Goldberg MSW, LCSW to present:
Rethinking the Therapeutic Milieu: Feminist Theory and Its Implications for Social Work Practice

When: June 5, 2010
Time: 10:00am-12:00pm
Location: TBD (Center City Philadelphia)
CEU's Available

Program Description

Both the first and second wave feminist movements had an impact on the history and development of social work practice. Today, however, there is little writing and opportunity for discussion about the impact of contemporary feminist theory on 21st century social work practice and scholarship. This program is designed to offer social workers an opportunity to gain an awareness and understanding of feminist theory in the context of social work practice. In doing so, this program will utilize the model of a developing non-profit organization and center for women, the Women’s Collaborative Circle, to discuss how gender-conscious services and programming can support not only the holistic needs of women today but support social workers’ professional growth and the impact of their work with clients. This interactive workshop encourages participants to bring case examples to be discussed that would benefit from exploration from a gender-conscious perspective. Handouts and educational materials will be provided.

Clinical Objectives

1. Gain basic awareness and understanding of feminist theory in the context of social work practice using the WCC as a model.

2. Discuss how gender-conscious services and programming can support social workers’ professional growth and work with clients.

3. Evaluate your current professional needs for expanding the work with your clients from a gender-conscious perspective.
