This ethics and boundaries training has been tailored to examine the ethical dilemmas that arise for employees in correctional settings. Recognizing that there are unique challenges across different correctional settings, this training uses a framework of group planning and process in the discussion of ethical issues.  Participants will apply the NASW Code of Ethics, ACA Code of Ethics, MPSW 20, and an ethical-decision making model to current ethical issues in practice.
Learning Objectives:
Participants will understand the requirements of ethical behavior according to Wisconsin law.
Participants will apply boundaries and ethics to correctional settings.
Participants will actively address ethical areas relevant to their practice.
Participants will interact and network with other workers in discussion of concerns.

“Implicit Bias"
1:00pm – 3:00pm
In this course, students discuss what makes bias a difficult subject to talk about, and learn the basic definitions of implicit bias and cognitive association. Instructors create a safe learning environment for all, and students are encouraged to share their unique opinions and experiences.  In conclusion, instructors will teach and illustrate several strategies to reduce the harmful impact of implicit bias.
