A Look at Media, Misogyny, and the "Consumption" of Women

ID: 4201

This workshop invites participants to take an in-depth look at how we as a culture have become comfortable with the institutional consumption of women. The purpose of the workshop is to help prepare workers in the field to understand the insidious and often unconscious reality of the consumption of women from a biopsychosocial perspective. We will begin by exploring the deeply rooted patriarchy that ceaselessly promotes and is comfortable with the objectification and resultant consumption of women. We will examine this phenomena with a spotlight on mass media including print, entertainment, technology and social media. Next we will discuss the consequences of this patriarchal paradigm including gender-based economic injustice, the over-sexualization and objectification of women and children; labor and sex trafficking and the parallel issue of sex-worker's rights. Participants will have the opportunity to explore how they can inform positive change within their communities as individual clinicians and advocates, as well as through the tools of leadership and organization-building within the movement of violence against women and children.

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.

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.

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.
