Social Work Podcast: Parents of Lesbians and Gays

Cynthia Conley, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor in the Department of Social Work at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Her research focuses on parental concerns about having gay and lesbian children. Currently, Professor Conley is investigating the types of clinical interventions used with heterosexual parents of gay and lesbian children to develop a best practice model to improve family cohesion during the coming out crisis. Professor Conley has worked with LGBT adolescents and their parents since the late 1990s, focusing on heterosexual parent's acceptance of their LGBT children. She provides consultation to organizations, educational institutions, and service providers on working with families of LGBT children.

Social Work Podcast: The Serenity Prayer

Social Work PodcastA new (as of mid-September) Social Work Podcast Is up:   The Wisdom To Know the Difference: Interview with Eileen Flanagan

Most episodes of the Social Work Podcast take huge topics - like stigma, suicide, and cognitive-behavior therapy, and try to distill them into 30-minute overviews. Today's podcast flips that on its head. Today we're spending over thirty minutes to unpack 25 words. My hope is that listeners learn something about the Serenity prayer - something that they can incorporate into their social work education or practice.

A new-ish Social Work Podcast:  Social Skills Training with Children and Adolescents.  Among the topics covered:

  • Could you give some examples of what it is and how it's done?
  • Are the skills that you work on specific to a given diagnosis, or is it not diagnosis specific?

As ever, may help for the test, may not...but good to be saturated in social work as you prep. Alert: Audio starts playing automatically.
