Katie VonDeLinde, MSW, LCSW

Adjunct Faculty, Brown School

Emily McGinnis, MSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker

The challenges of poverty and limited resources can thwart even the most seasoned helpers. Economic instability leads to increased stress, lowered well-being, housing crises, and can cause chaos in our client’s lives.

Despite high levels of financial need in client populations, helpers rarely receive training to respond effectively to client’s monetary needs. This workshop will explore how the NASW code of ethics guide our ethical responsibility of attending to client’s financial needs with client centered, non-directive strategies that value client’s diverse experiences and identities. Attendees will gain skills and practice hands-on strategies in economic assessment, creating effective budgets, and credit advocacy.

Class size is limited to 30.

This class meets the licensure requirement for 3 hours of continuing education in ethics.
