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]

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.
