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.

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

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.

Girls of Color: Trauma and Punitive Response

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.

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.

School to Prison Pipeline: Understanding the Relationship Between School Discipline, Dropout, and Incarceration-WEB

ID: 4278WEB

The school-to-prison pipeline is an epidemic that is plaguing schools across the nation. Far too often, students are suspended, expelled or even arrested for minor offenses that leave visits to the principal’s office a thing of the past. Statistics reflect that these policies disproportionately target students of color and those with a history of abuse, neglect, poverty or learning disabilities. The purpose of this webinar is to begin to examine the root causes and repercussions of the school-to-prison pipeline on today’s youth, understand the impact race, gender, and poverty have on this epidemic, and empower participants to make changes in their schools and communities.

Understanding the Impact of Trauma and Community Violence-WEB

ID: 5880WEB

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 workshop provides an overview of trauma and community violence, and explores the impact the two phenomena have on clients. The webinar 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.

Working with Immigrant and Undocumented Clients: A Deeper Understanding of the Core Principles of Trauma Informed Care and the Impact 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.
