LGBT Issues and the Law

ID: 4073

Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered often requires clients to view who they are and what their rights are as defined by law. A general understanding of what the law says is required in many situations, such as: legalizing a relationship, ending a relationship, housing, protecting civil rights in employment, and asserting one?s rights when it comes to discrimination and hate crime victimization. This workshop will address what the helping professional needs to know when it comes to the New Jersey civil union and domestic partnership statutes, adoption law, the Law Against Discrimination and Hate Crimes Act, as well as the impact of Federal laws such as The Civil Rights Act, the Defense of Marriage Act, and the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, among other things. The participant will also learn who they can refer their client to and what kind of assistance is available to them, as well what changes are currently pending to make New Jersey safer and more equal for LGBT clients. Knowledge of the law is not necessary as the presenter is committed to making law understandable for social workers and other helping professionals. *This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics

Looking Through the Invisible Borders: A Cross Cultural Response to Trauma Survivors

ID: 1328

This workshop's scope utilizes a cross cultural perspective in examining, exploring and identifying appropriate clinical strategies in trauma response. Sexual violence is endemic amongst all races, cultures and ethnicities nationally and internationally. Culture, context and identity are inherently woven within a trauma survivors experience as it is within a professional responding to the trauma survivor. Through this workshop we will attempt to understand the trauma experience cross culturally and the use of the professional's sense of self and identity in strategizing appropriate response. This workshop is offered in collaboration with NJ CASA. 5 NJ DVS credits: Intervention Skills
