Belton, Texas – Thursday, April 19, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Social Work Program will be hosting its spring ethics workshop in the Lord Conference Center of the Parker Academic Center on the UMHB campus. The workshop features a presentation by Dr. Patricia Gleason-Wynn entitled “Ethical Considerations and Social Work Practice with Family Caregivers of Older Adults.”

The presentation covers the ethics, values, and skills social workers need to support the caregivers of older adults. Gleason-Wynn will explore professional and personal implications in practice. The National Association of Social Workers’ (NASW) Standards of Social Work Practice with Family Caregivers of Older Adults will be introduced and used as a framework for social work practice.

She has worked with older adults in various settings for the past thirty years.
