EDITOR’S EYE

Dear Social Work Colleagues,

Welcome to Issue #93 of the Social Work E-News. This e-mail newsletter is brought to you by the publisher of THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER magazine, SocialWorker.com, SocialWorkJobBank.com, and other social work publications.

 

As I write this, I am thinking of Brenda Lee Yeager, a West Virginia social worker who was killed July 30 in the line of duty.  This is another sobering reminder of the seriousness of issues that social workers face on a daily basis, and the risks that social workers face, especially in protective services.  I am saddened by this most recent occurrence of violence against a social worker simply for doing her job.  See http://www.naswwv.org/ for the WV Chapter NASW statement on this tragedy.

Social work recently made its way into the top 25 most sought job candidates, according to JobFox.com, ranking 7th  “Throughout the United States, mental health organizations are reporting increased usage of services provided by social workers and counselors. Financial pressures are a major contributor, leading to higher levels of anxiety and emotional problems. According to the American Psychiatric Association, nearly 60 percent of people name money and work as their top sources of stress,” the report stated.  It continued, “In addition to helping individuals and families cope with growing financial pressures, social workers and counselors are being called on to handle many ongoing issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other mental diseases associated with today’s war veterans, children’s disorders, drug abuse, domestic violence and elderly behavioral problems associated with disease.” THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER has a Web site just for social work job seekers and social work employers to find each other.  It’s called SocialWorkJobBank!  You can post your confidential resume, search for jobs, get e-mail alerts, and more at http://www.socialworkjobbank.com.  I have included more information on SocialWorkJobBank in the “News and Resources” section of this e-news. along with counseling.

ARTICLE EXCERPT

 

Sweet Prisoners of the Positive Transference: Meditations on Peer Supervision

By Simon Y. Feuerman, PsyD, LCSW

 

(Editor’s Note: This article is excerpted from the Summer 2008 issue of THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER.  See our Web site to read the full article.)

Sallie, a 47-year-old-therapist, has been meeting with her peer supervision group once a month for years. They have been there for her in good times and bad. She has grown to love them and value their input in clinical discussions and to a certain extent in her life. They helped her when her mother was dying of cancer two years ago and have helped her slowly build her practice and increase her clinical skills. For her, they have been invaluable as a support and help.

Lately, Sallie had been giving thought to joining a supervision group with a leader, in addition to her peer support group, and she consulted with me.

I was curious as to what led her to this line of thinking. “I feel somehow that I need more than I’m getting...I am restless. I am almost 50. I do not feel like a kid anymore, but I want more than to just hang around and deal with managed care companies. I want to start my own group, and I would like to raise my fees.”

“Tell me about your peer supervision group. What are the people like?” I asked.

“I really love them. I grew to love them. Nothing is ever easy, but I took instantly to Carol, a young very attractive therapist in my office suite, and I really liked Desiree, an MFT from down the street who is really, really funny. They were just fun to be with and it was easy to get along. Then there was Bob,” Sallie said, her voice trailing off. Sallie had trouble with Bob, a psychologist from across town. She found him irritating. He had the manner of a gruff high school principal from the Bronx, which was off-putting. He willfully avoided any discussion of nuance and always tried to simplify the discussions. What was worse, he insisted on eating during the sessions. “This is my lunch hour,” he said simply, refusing to budge.

Sallie sighed. “I can’t leave these people, but I really do want to get things going in my life.”

 New report details innovative ways to help teens struggling with drugs, alcohol, and crime

 In June, a national group of project directors called on communities across the nation to better help teens beat drugs, alcohol, and crime using a groundbreaking approach tested at 10 pilot sites. They have issued a national report which shares a six-step model to bring about change, reveals a road map for communities to plan for innovation, and offers step-by-step instructions and examples on how to implement this new way of helping teens in trouble.

 The project directors oversee Reclaiming Futures initiatives funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Together, they have authored the report, How to Implement a Model to Get Youth off Drugs and Out of Crime, based on six years of creating and testing new ways to help teens that enter the juvenile justice system and previously received little or no care for their drug or alcohol problems. The report describes how judges, probation officers, treatment specialists, families and community members can take steps to improve the future of these youth.

 “When communities recognize this dire need and begin to work together to save these young people, real change can occur,” said Laura Nissen, Ph.D., Reclaiming Futures national program director. “The authors of this report are the feet on the ground pioneering new approaches to help teens in trouble. It is our hope that the lessons they’ve learned will assist and motivate others to address this pressing need.”

 The Reclaiming Futures model recommends screening each teen for drug and alcohol problems; assessing the severity of his/her drug and alcohol use; providing prompt access to a treatment plan coordinated by a service team; and connecting the teen with employers, mentors, and volunteer service projects. 

 A recent independent evaluation by the Urban Institute and the University of Chicago's Chapin Hall Center for Children shows this model is working. The evaluation found that communities that piloted the Reclaiming Futures model reported significant improvements in juvenile justice and drug and alcohol treatment. It also indicated change in the way juvenile justice and substance abuse agencies communicate and cooperate to serve youth and families.

  More recommendations from the project directors can be read at http://www.reclaimingfutures.org, where the report is posted in its entirety.

 Medicare Bill Gives Victory to Social Workers

 Washington—In a milestone victory, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) commended the U.S. Senate and House for overriding President Bush’s veto of the Medicare legislation, H.R. 6331, restoring funding for clinical social work payments cut in 2007 and greatly improving coverage of outpatient psychotherapy services. The final House vote on the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 was 383 to 41 and 70 to 26 in the Senate. Numerous Republicans joined united Democrats in overriding the veto.

 “NASW is thrilled that mental [health] services are finally receiving full recognition by this Congress,” noted Dr. Elizabeth Clark, executive director of NASW.  “We thank the thousands of NASW advocates who contacted their Senators and Representatives to support passage of the bill.”

 The new law contains a rate increase for psychotherapy services cut in 2007.  The Medicare package was designed primarily to halt a scheduled 10.6% cut in all Part B provider payment rates, but the new law also contains little noticed mental health coverage improvements. Among these are a rate increase for clinical social workers billing Part B and a critical Medicare co-insurance parity provision that reduces beneficiary cost-sharing by 5% per year from 50% currently down to 20% in 2014 - reaching full parity with other Medicare outpatient benefits. This is a crucial legislative goal long sought by NASW and other mental health groups.

“Given strong pressure from the White House to narrow the bill, this is a huge victory for clinical social workers and psychologists who worked hard to restore psychotherapy rates in Medicare,” says Jim Finley, NASW lobbyist.  “The sentiment of mental health advocates on final passage was exuberant, as this is a major victory on Medicare’s outpatient mental health benefit.”

Clinical social worker and psychology rates will increase for psychotherapy and related services by 5% (adding $45 million in new spending) for 18 months from July 1, 2008 through December 31, 2009. This psychotherapy rate increase is above the rate given to other medical services under Part B, which all clinicians, including social workers, will receive.

The law also provides for Medicare co-insurance parity on mental health services, reducing beneficiaries' co-payments by 5% per year, reducing the rate from 50% to 45% in 2009 and finally reaching 20% in 2014 – achieving full parity with Medicare outpatient benefits. This legislative goal has been supported by NASW and other mental health advocates since Medicare was enacted in 1965. In addition, the law postpones a rate cut for 18 months beginning July 1, 2008 and increases payments for all providers by 1.1% for 2009, including clinical social workers participating in Part B.

CSWE Gero-Ed Center Awards Almost $150,000 to 20 Social Work Programs in BSW Experiential Learning Program Grants

The CSWE Gero-Ed Center will administer nearly $150,000 in BSW Experiential Learning (BEL) Program funding to social work programs nationwide. Made possible by the John A. Hartford Foundation, the 20 selected CSWE-accredited BSW programs will receive $7,400–$7,500 each over 2 years to implement hands-on opportunities with older adults for students likely to enter direct practice.

Research has indicated that only 5% of those BSW students polled in the United States express interest in working with older adults. This number is very small, compared to the 60,000–70,000 direct practitioners needed by 2020 to meet the needs of older people and their families.

 “Reaching social work students early in their education about the rewards of working with older adults is key,” said Nancy Hooyman, co-principal investigator of the CSWE Gero-Ed Center and Hooyman Gerontology Professor at the University of Washington, Seattle. “If more have positive experiences with elders and become interested in pursuing gerontological social work, we can efficiently increase the number of practitioners prepared to meet their needs.”

Ending on June 30, 2010, this 2-year grant cycle allows each grantee to design its own learning opportunities for its BSW students. BEL programs will vary based on the school’s unique student population, but aim to dispel any existing misconceptions or fears about working in the field of aging.

The CSWE Gero-Ed Center’s 20 BEL Program awardees represent a diverse population of social work programs throughout the country—in cities and towns, small colleges and large universities, and from coast to coast. These universities are Ball State University in Muncie, IN; East Central University in Ada, OK; Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI; Fordham University in New York, NY; Loyola University of Chicago; Luther College in Decorah, IA; Michigan State University in East Lansing; Miles College in Birmingham, AL; Saint Louis University in St. Louis, MO; Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV; Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY; State University of New York at Fredonia; University of Arkansas at Little Rock; University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg; University of Maine in Bangor; University of North Carolina at Greensboro; University of North Texas in Denton, University of Portland in Oregon; Wayne State University in Detroit, MI; and West Virginia University in Morgantown.
