Adult Protective Services Workforce Innovations (APSWI) is excited to announce that the eLearnings for two National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA) Core Modules are available to support APS professionals as they navigate challenging situations.
Module 2: Ethics, Values, and Cultural Responsiveness in APS eLearning was recently revised and now comes with a Transfer of Learning Packet. This training is also available as an Instructor-Led training. In this module, learners review APS ethical principles and the dilemmas that can arise when two or more of these principles come into conflict. Learners will be introduced to the concepts of implicit bias, intersectionality, and cultural humility, and their impact on ethical decision-making. The ToL Packet can be used by trainers, supervisors, peers or individuals to continue discussion and self-reflection on these topics.
Thank you to our SMEs, Amanda Lee and Sara Kimber, for revising the curriculum and to NAPSA Education Committee and CA’s Curriculum Advisory Committee for their work on these projects; and to Kat Preston-Wager for coordinating these projects.
Module 17: Screening for Decision-Making Ability when Working with APS Clients eLearning was also recently revised. Assessing and determining whether clients have the ability to make informed decisions about their situations is one of the greatest challenges faced by APS professionals. This course focuses on tailoring interview questions to identify factors that affect decision-making ability. It also provides an understanding of the uses and limitations of the tools available for screening decision-making ability.
Thank you to our SME, Richard Albrecht, for revising the curriculum and to NAPSA Education Committee and CA’s Curriculum Advisory Committee for their work on these projects; and to Kat Preston-Wager for coordinating these projects.
