Beyond the Individual: A Community Beset by Racial Trauma-WEB

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.

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 webinar does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours in ethics. [This courses fulfills an elective for one of the following certificate programs: Gerontology, Senior Housing Issues or Senior Services Management]

Girls of Color: Trauma and Punitive Response-WEB

ID: 4281WEB

The needs of girls of color are often overlooked, neglected or criminalized, particularly African American/black girls, leading to overrepresentation in school disciplinary actions, the pipeline to prison phenomenon, and commercial sex trafficking. This interactive workshop will examine the historical and cultural perspectives of girls of color in this country, the impact of gender on the experience of trauma and punitive responses to trauma-related behaviors. The intersection of race, class, and socioeconomic status also will also be explored, with strategies for intervention as additional areas of focus.

Refugee Wellbeing and Mental Health Interventions: Evidence-based alternative interventions for Refugees

ID: 4263WEB

Refugees experience significant trauma, including violence in pre- flight, during migration, and post flight stages, all of which have an adverse impact on resettlement outcomes and contribute significantly to poorer mental health. The long-term impact of adverse mental health outcomes on forcibly displaced refugee populations is a dominant problem in the United States. This workshop aims to discuss the challenges that refugees endure including specific barriers to accessing mental health services and ways to address their wellbeing within the resettlement structure in the U.S. Achievement of wellbeing is argued as an integrative approach utilizing a multidisciplinary approach recognizing the varied experiences, trauma history, ethnic and religious beliefs, and their identities both as individuals and as belonging to the community. Mental health services based on a Western biomedical language and practice are not aligned with the needs of refugees and lead to non or underutilization of services. The lack of available culturally and linguistic appropriate services and limited health insurance further exacerbate this problem. The focus of this presentation will be on the much-needed attention to the development of specialized services for the refugee community in New Jersey. This three hour workshop highlights alternative interventions that focus more on overall wellbeing for refugees including yoga, meditative art therapy, drumming, and forest bathing that have been found to be effective in addressing the trauma and establish a sense of enhanced wellbeing, while being sustainable and financially feasible. Modalities vary in practice but can be modified based on living environment and Covid-19 restrictions.
