Class I – 10:00am – 1:00pm

The Penn State Factor: The Ethical Imperative of Mandated Reporting and the Devastating Effect of Cover-Up (3 Category I Ethics CEUs)

Few things are as heartbreaking and upsetting as learning of an occurrence of child abuse. It is even more disconcerting to learn of systematic abuse and the efforts by institutions to cover them up. It is often said that “the cover up is worse than the crime”. Yet time and again institutions and professionals choose to turn a blind eye to abuse or sweep concerns under the rug. This class will take a look at the recently uncovered abuse allegations and cover-up at Penn State University. Participants will look at reporting patterns and gain an understanding of what prevents people from reporting, and learn how to create an environment that encourages abuse reporting. Participants will learn the laws related to child abuse reporting and what constitutes child abuse in the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia. They will gain a deeper understanding of the reasons that people and institutions do not report events and an understanding of that impact on the institutions and children. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)

Class 2- 1:45pm-4:45pm

 Cultural Competence in a Multi-Generational Workplace (3 Category I CEUs)

Cultural Competence refers to the ability to work with people of cultures different than our own. But what if people sharing the same basic culture, are decades apart? The ever increasing pace of technology and the economic realities of delayed retirement has increased the age diversity and generational disconnect in the workplace. Additionally, changes in schooling and parenting styles over the last 30 years means that young people entering the workforce bring very different skills, expectations, and culture to the workplace. This interactive training will look at generational differences and will explore the benefits of a generationally diverse, or Multi-Gen workplace.  (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)
