Beyond the Individual: A Community Beset by Racial Trauma

ID: 4218WEB

The COVID-19 pandemic undeniably exposed endemic vulnerabilities within the black community resulting from centuries of systemic oppression. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study is a landmark public health study that expanded our understanding of trauma and its impact, yet still falls short of elucidating the disparate impact of trauma and how it effects entire communities. With racial trauma as a central focus, this workshop will augment your understanding of trauma, beyond the level of the individual, toward an understanding of how it manifests in a community. This webinar will advance a framework for understanding racially influenced community trauma, its drivers, and its consequences. As well as offering treatment considerations for clinical practice.

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.

LGBT Issues and the Law-WEB

ID: 4073WEB

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 webinar 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

Providing Culturally-Responsive and Integrative LGBTQIAP+ Addictions Treatment-WEB

ID: 5033WEB

This is a 2 day webinar. Research supports the fact that LGBTQIAP+ communities experience a high level of stress and leading to a disparity in the level of mental health and addiction issues. These disparities are due to experiencing violence, discrimination, and multiples sites of marginalization. It is imperative for mental health clinicians and addiction professionals to receive training on how to understand and integrate culture into their work and how to actively cultivate an anti-oppressive and affirmative lens when working with members of these communities. Many practitioners report feeling ill-equipped and lacking competence in providing affirmative care to LGBTQIAP+ individuals. This webinar is specifically for clinicians who have had limited experience with the above-named communities. It will prepare the practitioner with recognizing, assessing, and treating individuals who identify as LGBTQIAP+ who are struggling with substance abuse and related problems. Participants will have the opportunity to examine their own socialization around sexuality, and how it has impacted them personally and professionally. Terminology will be reviewed, with special attention paid to culturally-specific risk and etiological factors and evidence-based culturally-responsive and affirmative treatment.

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.
