How to Deal with Trauma Anniversaries: Shootings, Deaths, Suicides, and Pandemics

ID: 4260WEB

This webinar is designed to deal with the reality that traumatic events do not disappear with the passage of time and the original trauma can be retriggered by anniversaries. We need quality ways in which to deal with trauma anniversaries that recognize their power and do not exacerbate the trauma symptoms evoked. This webinar will provide concrete examples of effective strategies for remembering traumas among individuals, families, communities and organizations. The examples will address the reality that anniversaries affect and must be remembered differently among children and adults, those located near and far during and after the original trauma, and those with other intervening trauma triggering experiences. We will also address differences between first anniversaries and those that occur after the passage of time (five years; ten years). Special attention will be paid to how educational institutions and social service organizations can deal with trauma anniversaries.

Reproductive Justice: What Social Workers Need to Know

ID: 4233WEB

As assaults on reproductive health continue across the country, the time is now for social workers to learn about the tenets of Reproductive Justice (RJ). A framework developed by minoritized groups in the 1990s, RJ moves the abortion discourse beyond “choice” and considers the elements that contribute to or hinder true bodily autonomy: the right to have a child, the right to not have a child, and the right raise a child in safe and healthy environments. As RJ especially considers the impact of legislation, policy, and intervention on vulnerable communities, it is especially relevant during today’s socio-political climate. This course will introduce, define, and explore the tenets of RJ and how they directly apply to social work advocacy and practice. Concrete suggestions for advocacy and intervention will also be provided.

Supervision in Uncertain Times: Challenges and Techniques to Help Keep You & Your Staff Safe

ID: 4788WEB

Many professionals assume some risk as a part of the job, but in doing so may overlook steps that can be taken to maintain a safer environment for themselves and their client. As stated in the NASW Guidelines for Social Worker Safety in the Workplace, social workers are working in increasingly "unpredictable and often unsafe" environments. Sometimes apathy or familiarity may impact how aware we are of just how unpredictable our environment can be. During this workshop we will explore questions of ethical obligations for supervisors regarding staff safety, implications of violence in the workplace as well as ideas for helping to keep employees safe. What would you do, what could you do? *This webinar does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics.

Waiting for the Mud to Settle: Mindfulness as a Coping Strategy During Chaotic Times

ID: 1014WEB

During times of uncertainty and chaos, feelings of fear, anxiety, overwhelm and grief are likely to rise to the surface and dominate our awareness. Mindfulness involves focusing awareness and non-judgmental attention to the experience of the present moment. When practicing mindfulness, we do not push our emotions aside, but notice them without judgment, with acceptance and curiosity instead. It has been noted that what we resist persists and this gentle allowing of our experience in the present moment has been scientifically proven to improve physical and emotional health. This webinar will provide participants with a basic foundation of the principles of mindfulness in addition to experiential practice of a variety of mindfulness exercises. Jon Kabbat-Zinn, a pioneer in bringing mindfulness to Western culture stated: “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” At this unprecedented time in our history, mindfulness can be an effective coping strategy for helping professionals, their loved ones and their clients.
