TWU Hosts Social Work Workshop

4/2/04


DENTON – Social workers can earn continuing education credits by participating in the Sexual Orientation: Ethical Responsibilities for Social Workers workshop. Edward Lane, Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW), will be the featured speaker May 7 at Texas Woman’s University.

Lane is self-employed as a consultant specializing in diversity issues — primarily gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and HIV/AIDS issues — within the workplace. He also works as a medical social worker with two home health agencies that cover 10 rural central Texas counties. He will help workshop participants gain a better understanding of stereotyping, homophobia and the differences between biological sex, gender identity, gender roles and sexual orientation, among other issues.

The National Association of Social Workers/Texas has approved the workshop for three continuing education units in ethics and the Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners for social work.

Registration before April 23 is $45; late registration is $55. Registration for TWU students is $10. For more information or to register, contact the TWU Office of Lifelong Learning at (800) 250-7808, (940) 898-3408 or visit www.twu.edu/lifelong.

Lane earned his bachelor of science degree in psychology from Southwestern Texas State University and his master of social work degree from the University of Houston. He has been employed in the social services field since 1985.
