2019  Pre-Conference Learning Seminars:

Legal and ethical  Game Show Training  (3. 0 CE clock hours)

Presented by:  Dr. Clifton Mitchell

SAY GOOD-BYE TO DULL LEGAL AND ETHICAL TRAINING! I AM VERY EXCITED TO INTRODUCE MY LATEST LEGAL AND ETHICAL TRAINING USING A GAME SHOW FORMAT. THIS STYLE OF PRESENTATION GREW OUT OF RECOGNITION THAT MOST MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS DO NOT NEED ANOTHER LECTURE ON TYPICAL LEGAL AND ETHICAL TOPICS. WHAT HAS BEEN NEEDED IS A FUN, STIMULATING WAY TO REVIEW AND LEARN FROM WHAT THEY ALREADY KNOW. PARTICIPANTS ARE BROKEN INTO TEAMS AND EACH TEAM HAS AN ELECTRONIC REMOTE THAT SENDS THE TEAM'S ANSWER TO QUESTIONS TO A COMPUTER THAT KEEPS SCORES. ANSWERS FROM TEAMS ARE SCORED, GRAPHED, POSTED, AND DISCUSSED. SPONSORS CAN PROVIDE PRIZES TO THE WINNING TEAM. IN ONE FORMAT, QUESTIONS ARE PRESENTED ON A JEOPARDY-STYLE SCREEN WHERE CATEGORIES ARE CHOSEN AND QUESTIONS GET HARDER AS POINT VALUES INCREASE. THE FULL-DAY TRAINING INCLUDES A FAMILY FEUD COMPONENT. THIS PRESENTATION CAN ACCOMMODATE ANY SIZE AUDIENCE. FOR LARGE AUDIENCES, A GALLERY IS CREATED IN THE BACK OF THE ROOM AND PLAY ALONG AS DESIRED. THE QUESTIONS POSED HAVE BEEN YEARS IN DEVELOPMENT AND OFTEN FOCUS ON LESSER-KNOWN ASPECTS OF LEGAL AND ETHICAL QUANDARIES.

EVALUATIONS FOR THIS TRAINING HAVE BEEN EXCEPTIONALLY POSITIVE. AUDIENCE MEMBERS HAVE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME DISCUSSING AND WORKING THROUGH PERPLEXING QUESTIONS. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A TRAINING FORMAT THAT STIMULATED SO MUCH DISCUSSION AND WHERE TIME FLEW BY SO FAST. ALL LEGAL AND ETHICAL QUESTIONS ARE DESIGNED FOR ALL MENTAL HEALTH SETTINGS AND GUILDS INCLUDING COUNSELING, SOCIAL WORK, PSYCHOLOGY, MARRIAGE AND FAMILY, PSYCHIATRY, DRUG AND ALCOHOL, CASE MANAGEMENT, ETC. FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELORS A SPECIAL SECTION CAN BE INCLUDED COVERING 42 CFR. THIS PROGRAM IS AVAILABLE IN A 3 OR 6-HOUR FORMAT. FOR LARGE AUDIENCES MORNING AND AFTERNOON SESSIONS COULD BE ADVERTISED AND ATTENDEES COULD CHOOSE THE MOST CONVENIENT SESSION TO ATTEND.    (ETHICS)

ALL OF THIS AND MORE IN THE DAILY LIFE OF A SCHOOL COUNSELOR.  WITH THE EVER-INCREASING STUDENT NEEDS FOR SUPPORT IN SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT, CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND ACADEMICS, IT IS MORE IMPORTANT NOW THAN EVER BEFORE THAT WE ARE USING OUR SCHOOL COUNSELOR SUPERPOWERS TO HELP STUDENTS REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL AND DISCOVER THE WORLD IN WHICH THEY STRIVE TO ACHIEVE.

 THROUGH A DATA-DRIVEN, STUDENT-CENTERED, COMPREHENSIVE COUNSELING PROGRAM WE CAN ENSURE WE ARE MEETING THE NEEDS OF ALL OF OUR STUDENTS ALL OF THE TIME.  THIS INTERACTIVE, HANDS-ON WORKSHOP WILL PROVIDE THE NECESSARY FRAMEWORK TO START DEVELOPING A COUNSELING PROGRAM THAT IS PROACTIVE, INSTEAD OF REACTIVE, AND PROVIDES SUPPORT FOR COUNSELORS TO USE THE TRUE SUPERPOWERS WE EMBODY.  

 OUR STUDENTS AND OUR PROFESSION ARE DEPENDING ON US TO RISE UP AND ANSWER THE CALL TO SUPPORT ALL STUDENTS, SO GRAB YOUR SUPERPOWER EQUIPMENT AND BE READY TO START DEVELOPING A PROGRAM THAT IS BUILT UPON THE PILLARS OF THE ASCA NATIONAL MODEL.
