Differences and Diversity in the Experience, Effects and Treatment of Trauma

New Jersey is the fifth most culturally diverse state in our nation. Traumatic stress reactions are greatly influenced by an individual's culture, ethnicity and spirituality. In addition, pre-existing and comorbid conditions such as mental illness and substance abuse will effect outcomes. In this workshop we will examine how cultural issues influence the experience, effects and treatment of trauma and discuss culturally specific needs and interventions for trauma survivors. The needs of some special populations will be explored as well.

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

ID: 4206

This workshop will examine the impact social media, music, and advertising have on todays 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.
