Harm Reduction & Social Worker Discretion: Fighting Client Criminalization For Self-Managed Abortion

NASW California

4:30 p.m.

Curious how social workers can respond to attacks on reproductive justice? Start here. Lauren Paulk, J.D. and Tamara Marzouk, LCSW, MPH will explore the concept of self-managed abortion (SMA). The audience will gain an understanding of the role of social workers in relation to SMA, legal issues, and how to help stop the criminalization of our clients for self-managing their own abortion care. The presentation will also address how the social work code of ethics informs our practice when a client chooses to self-manage their abortion. 1 Law & Ethics CEU will be provided. Sign in and sign out/evaluation completion are required. The deadline to register for this event is June 28 at 5PM PT.

Workshop Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will gain information about the prevalence of self-managed abortion (SMA), the reasons that people choose this method, and the safety and efficacy of the practice.
  • Participants will be able to define reproductive justice and understand how it intersects with the theory of harm reduction when applied to the practice of self-managed abortion.
  • Participants will learn about the legal issues involved with SMA and actions that may contribute to a client’s risk of criminalization.
  • Participants will understand how the social work code of ethics can inform their practice when a client is considering or has participated in a self-managed abortion.
