Refugee Well-being and Mental Health Interventions: Evidence-based Alternative Interventions for Refugees

ID: 4263WEB

Refugees experience significant trauma, including violence in pre-flight, during migration, and post flight stages, all of which have an adverse impact on resettlement outcomes and contribute significantly to poorer mental health. The long-term impact of adverse mental health outcomes on forcibly displaced refugee populations is a dominant problem in the United States. This webinar aims to discuss the challenges that refugees endure including specific barriers to accessing mental health services and ways to address their well-being within the resettlement structure in the U.S. Achievement of well-being is argued as an integrative approach utilizing a multidisciplinary approach recognizing the varied experiences, trauma history, ethnic and religious beliefs, and their identities both as individuals and as belonging to the community. Mental health services based on a Western biomedical language and practice are not aligned with the needs of refugees and lead to non or underutilization of services. The lack of available culturally and linguistic appropriate services and limited health insurance further exacerbate this problem. The focus of this webinar will be on the much-needed attention to the development of specialized services for the refugee community in New Jersey. This webinar highlights alternative interventions that focus more on overall well-being for refugees including yoga, meditative art therapy, drumming, and forest bathing that have been found to be effective in addressing the trauma and establish a sense of enhanced well-being, while being sustainable and financially feasible. Modalities vary in practice but can be modified based on living environment and Covid-19 restrictions.

Supporting Adults, Teens, and Children Coping with Loss-WEB

ID: 5294WEB

Adults, teens and children experience many different types of loss: death, divorce, abandonment, foster care, illness, incarceration and deportation leaving them at higher risk for mental and physical illness, substance abuse and aggressive behavior. Learning how to support people after a loss enables them to live emotionally healthy, meaningful and productive lives. This workshop provides an understanding of the impact of loss on children and youth and adults. Attendees will learn the definitions and interrelatedness of loss, grief, mourning and resilience. The dominant culture encourages winning and success, but doesn’t focus on learning how to lose. This essential life skill can be learned as social workers and other professionals provide support to those who are grieving. This webinar will explore the connection between grief and shame as well as differing cultural "grief beliefs" after a loss. While this webinar will focus primarily on how to help people cope with a loss due to death, these concepts are transferable to all types of loss.

The Neurobiology of Trauma/PTSD-WEB

ID: 5235WEB

The overall goal of this webinar is for practitioners to understand that the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is not merely a psychosocial phenomenon and to be better able to provide treatment interventions based on changes in the nervous system. PTSD has been found to be prevalent, but it is important to study PTSD to understand why some individuals develop the disorder and others, also exposed to specific traumatic events, do not. Studying the symptomology of PTSD, as it relates to possible neural mechanisms, may provide some insight toward answering these questions. By the end of this webinar, you will be able to: list the three general categories of symptoms exhibited by individuals with PTSD; describe the role of the limbic system in the production of memory dysfunction in traumatized individuals; understand how the hypothalamus and pituitary gland are involved in the fight or flight response; and the benefits and side-effects of the most common pharmacological agents used to treat PTSD/Trauma.

Understand the Trans/Nonbinary Experience & Providing Affirming Care

ID: 5365WEB

Many transgender and non-binary people struggle to find therapists that are affirming of their identities, and even clinicians that are well meaning often have to be educated by their clients when it comes to their gender identities. This course is designed to facilitate consciousness-raising and depth of self-awareness of how gender socialization impacts and informs the therapeutic lens and therapeutic relationship. Participants will have opportunities for small group discussions and self-reflective activities to facilitate a depth of personal and professional understanding of how themes of gender inform clinical conceptualizations. Participants will also gain a foundational understanding of the lived experience of transgender and non-binary individuals, as well as core current affirmative language and terminology to use with gender-expansive individuals and groups.

Unwanted Consensual Sex: Treating the Silent Sexual Trauma-WEB

ID: 5363WEB

Sexual consent has gotten renewed attention since the “me too” movement gave women permission to openly discuss the sexual abuse they were suffering in silence. What the consent conversation does not address is the very common experience many women have of consenting to have sex they do not want. Unwanted consent, or sex without desire, is the cause of many emotional and physical symptoms that are often blamed on something else. This webinar will define unwanted consent, explore the reasons it happens, and provide participants with a plan to help our clients identify and process the negative impact of agreeing to have unwanted sex.
