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.

Social Media: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly from a Social Work Perspective-WEB

ID: 4206WEB

This webinar will examine the impact social media, music, and advertising have on today's society. Overexposure to certain media outlets can influence how people develop their value system and how they make decisions on moral issues and peer relationships. We know this to be particularly true with individuals who have experienced trauma and significant losses. By examining music, videos, and advertisement campaigns, we identify the negative impact of imagery and subliminal messages, and discuss ways to help individuals identify why they make the choices they make online. We will explore how to increase media literacy by educating and empowering individuals to use critical thinking skills and to see the direct and unintended consequences associated with technology. The importance of legislative advocacy will also be discussed.

Strategic Management-WEB

ID: 7151WEB

Nonprofit organizations differ from their for profit counterparts in one key way: dedication to the charitable mission. Strategic management starts with setting the organization's mission, vision, and values, and ends with a strategic agenda: an organic, vital, and living document that proactively guides leaders to a common preferred future. The process works to align governance, management, and staff in a single direction and with common purpose. Metrics ("what gets measured gets done") are discussed that support the accountability of the management to clients and to the governing body, and which keeps the process fresh and self-sustaining. The model is outcome driven, built on business principles, and reflects the belief that: "Nonprofit" is a tax category, not a state of mind. This webinar does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours. [Required for Senior Services Management or Non-Profit & Public Management Certificate Program]

This is a Time of Suffering: Comforting Ourselves through Self-Compassion-WEB

ID: 4183WEB

There is no denying that this time in our history is one of the most stressful in our lifetime. Prolonged exposure to stress is scientifically proven to be detrimental to our physical and emotional health. It is more important now than ever to understand the power of self-acceptance and self-compassion in buffering the stress response and the psychological and physiological impact it has on our health.

These webinars will allow participants to assess their own level of self-compassion. This webinar will discuss the definition and elements of self-compassion, the stages of self-compassion and obstacles to self-compassion. Also, this will is primarily experiential and will introduce participants to a variety of self-compassion exercises that they can easily practice themselves or teach to their clients.

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

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.
