Environmental Justice: A Social Work Perspective-WEB

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.
