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.

Elder Justice for All

ID: 4392

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 workshop 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 workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics.

Understanding the Impact of Trauma and Community Violence

ID: 5880

Trauma has sometimes been defined in reference to circumstances that are outside the realm of normal human experience. Unfortunately, this definition does not always hold true for the clients with whom we work. For some, trauma can occur frequently and become part of the common human experience, especially community violence. The results of trauma and community violence can influence and compound our clients difficulties. This training provides an overview of trauma and community violence, and explores the impact the two phenomena have on clients. The training is also designed to give professionals tools to address the residual effects of trauma and community violence with their clients. Additionally, professionals will examine ways they can be exposed to trauma vicariously and therefore will understand the importance of self-care to combat burnout.
