“Yoga-Informed Social Work” is gaining the interest of social workers around country. As an emerging field of study and practice, Yoga-Informed Social Work needs to be examined for ethical considerations and issues. This presentation will use the NASW Code of Ethics as a benchmark for analysis. Such concerns as “competency/scope of practice, informed consent, physical boundaries and touch, and dual relationships” will be explored. Full audience participation is encouraged in this learning process. This presentation is on the Mind-Body neuroscience, its affect upon emotions as well as aspects of pain symptomology. The physical changes that come from regular Yoga practice can heal the mind as well as the body. Short breath and physical standing/sitting practices will be taught with the option to participate or not. The last hour will be devoted to a self-care Yoga Practice, on the floor, led by the presenter. Participants will have the option to participate or not, or to modify to a chair practice.
