The Fierce Urgency of Now - Deepening Our Commitment to Social Justice Practice

ID: 4240

This workshop will highlight the powerful, pivotal, and prophetic role all social workers can and must play at this critical moment in history. We will briefly discuss social work’s commitment to social justice as a core value and central ethical principle and then introduce the Circle of Insight, a practical tool that social workers can use to deepen their commitment to social justice practice. Anthony Nicotera created this tool over his 20 years as a social work advocate, clinician, activist, and educator. The presentation will incorporate lessons from his social justice, spirituality, and multi-faith leadership courses as well as experiences and insights from his domestic and international community-based work. It will be a multimedia, interactive presentation utilizing interviews, music, blogs and videos, as well as clips from his award-winning film, The 5 Powers, made in collaboration with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He will share with participants tools and resources social workers can use in their daily practice to help then move toward deeper, more transformative and liberating social justice social work practice.
