Beyond the Individual: A Community Beset by Racial Trauma

ID: 5840WEB

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. *This webinar does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics.

Microaggressions: Impact and Interventions

ID: 1332WEB

What are microaggressions and how do they impact our work with survivors of intimate partner violence? How do they come up in interactions with professional colleagues and in our day to day lives? This webinar explores how these daily verbal, behavioral or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, perpetuate negative stereotypes and cause harm. Participants will gain skills to identify and interrupt various forms of microaggressions in their interactions with clients, in the workplace, and within their larger communities. This webinar was developed using an intersectional lens and seeks to amplify and prioritize voices of BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and other marginalized participants, who are disproportionately impacted by implicit bias and microaggressions.

Shifting Perspectives: Developing a Culturally Syntonic Approach for Working with Black Clients

ID: 4272WEB

There has been considerable attention to the impact of racism, structural oppression, and other abuses suffered by Black people. This presentation seeks to advance this conversation from a problem focused one to a healing focused one. It is not within the scope of this presentation to teach a “treatment” approach. Through the lens of culture, the presenter aims to facilitate a shift from our default outlook, to one that illuminates a culturally syntonic view of the black client. We will build a framework from which racially-informed therapeutic ideas, technique, and strategy can evolve. The presenter will also provide a cursory overview of healing approaches that are often overlooked in mainstream literature.

Trauma Informed Care for Immigrant Victims of Domestic Violence

ID: 4221WEB

Using the basic understanding of the first workshop, we will explore the dynamics of domestic violence through specific examples of abusive tactics that are used to control immigrants. This interactive workshop will address the clinical implications that violence has in the immigrant community. In this second part, utilizing the Core Principles of Trauma-Informed Care, we will illustrate how to provide appropriate clinical treatment to immigrant clients through real-life case examples. Focusing particularly on the first core principle, “Understanding Trauma and its Impact,” we will highlight the relationship between trauma and the effect on the brain and body in immigrant survivors of domestic violence. As a result, service providers will gain clinical skills through a trauma-informed lens to provide culturally competent clinical services.
