Beyond the Individual: A Community Beset by Racial Trauma-WEB

ID: 4218WEB

The COVID-19 pandemic undeniably exposed endemic vulnerabilities within the black community resulting from centuries of systemic oppression. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study is a landmark public health study that expanded our understanding of trauma and its impact, yet still falls short of elucidating the disparate impact of trauma and how it effects entire communities. With racial trauma as a central focus, this workshop will augment your understanding of trauma, beyond the level of the individual, toward an understanding of how it manifests in a community. This webinar will advance a framework for understanding racially influenced community trauma, its drivers, and its consequences. As well as offering treatment considerations for clinical practice.

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

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.
