Environmental Justice: A Social Work Perspective

ID: 4209WEB

The water crisis in Flint, the Dakota Access pipelines, disastrous hurricanes in the Caribbean islands, and the earthquakes in Mexico when environmental issues impact marginalized populations, social workers are always called to action. Social workers are trained to navigate systems with the goal of improving client outcomes. In this workshop participants will examine the organic relationship between social work and the physical environment; expand their fund of knowledge on eco-sensitive practices; and will learn three theories that are inclusive of the natural environment. The term Person-in-Environment is often used in social work. Ironically, this cornerstone social work concept has, over time, come to refer primarily to the social environment. Participants will walk away with ways in which they can positively impact the earth through more eco-sensitive social work practices.

Refugees and Humanitarian Migrants in New Jersey: Strengths and Challenges

ID: 4231WEB

Since 2001, over 9,000 refugees have been resettled in the state of New Jersey as part of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. They are among the thousands of individuals fleeing persecution in their homelands who come to the United States each year as refugees, asylum seekers, and humanitarian migrants. This webinar will discuss who the refugees are, how they enter the U.S., what assistance is available, and what agencies are providing these services. We will examine the experience and common challenges of resettlement/relocating to a new country, including the impact of persecution and past trauma. We will examine mental health as an often unmet or unnoticed need and how providers working with these individuals can address mental health and other needs. The webinar will also cover the importance of learning about this population now and review key considerations for providers working with refugees, as there is a likelihood that there will be increased numbers of refugees, asylees, and humanitarian migrants that will interface with service providers as a result of policy changes by the Biden Administration.
