Elder Justice for All-WEB

ID: 4392WEB

Over 10,000 baby boomers will be turning 65 every day for the next 17 years and 1 in 10 will be a victim of elder abuse thus creating 1,000 victims a day! To address this ethical dilemma and human rights issue, multiple stakeholders gathered to create the Elder Justice Roadmap. As professionals and advocates, it is increasingly important that we familiarize ourselves with this roadmap and assess how we can participate no matter at what level of practice we serve - micro, mezzo or macro. This webinar will help professionals outside of Adult Protective Services envision a roadmap to elder justice through lecture, discussion and group exercises and explore what we can do to meet the goal of elder justice for all. Social work ethics will be compared to the Adult Protective Services' Code of Ethics in demonstrating how the roadmap may be interpreted among professions. *This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics.

How to Deal with Trauma Anniversaries: Shootings, Deaths, Suicides and Pandemics-WEB

ID: 4260WEB

This webinar is designed to deal with the reality that traumatic events do not disappear with the passage of time and the original trauma can be retriggered by anniversaries. We need quality ways in which to deal with trauma anniversaries that recognize their power and do not exacerbate the trauma symptoms evoked. This webinar will provide concrete examples of effective strategies for remembering traumas among individuals, families, communities and organizations. The examples will address the reality that anniversaries affect and must be remembered differently among children and adults, those located near and far during and after the original trauma, and those with other intervening trauma triggering experiences. We will also address differences between first anniversaries and those that occur after the passage of time (five years; ten years). Special attention will be paid to how educational institutions and social service organizations can deal with trauma anniversaries.

Refugees and Humanitarian Migrants in New Jersey: Strengths and Challenges-WEB

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.

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

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.

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. Neuroscientists have proven that critical self-talk is perceived by the brain as a threat to our survival and generates a similar stress response to an external traumatic event. 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.
