Reproductive Justice: What Social Workers Need to Know

ID: 4233WEB

As assaults on reproductive health continue across the country, the time is now for social workers to learn about the tenets of Reproductive Justice (RJ). A framework developed by minoritized groups in the 1990s, RJ moves the abortion discourse beyond “choice” and considers the elements that contribute to or hinder true bodily autonomy: the right to have a child, the right to not have a child, and the right raise a child in safe and healthy environments. As RJ especially considers the impact of legislation, policy, and intervention on vulnerable communities, it is especially relevant during today’s socio-political climate. This course will introduce, define, and explore the tenets of RJ and how they directly apply to social work advocacy and practice. Concrete suggestions for advocacy and intervention will also be provided. [Elective for Adoption Certificate Program]

Strategic Management

ID: 7151WEB

Nonprofit organizations differ from their for profit counterparts in one key way: dedication to the charitable mission. Strategic management starts with setting the organization's mission, vision, and values, and ends with a strategic agenda: an organic, vital, and living document that proactively guides leaders to a common preferred future. The process works to align governance, management, and staff in a single direction and with common purpose. Metrics ("what gets measured gets done") are discussed that support the accountability of the management to clients and to the governing body, and which keeps the process fresh and self-sustaining. The model is outcome driven, built on business principles, and reflects the belief that: "Nonprofit" is a tax category, not a state of mind. This webinar does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours. [Required for Senior Services Management or Non-Profit & Public Management Certificate Program]

This is a Time of Suffering: Comforting Ourselves through Self-Compassion

ID: 4183WEB

There is no denying that this time in our history is one of the most stressful in our lifetime. Prolonged exposure to stress is scientifically proven to be detrimental to our physical and emotional health. It is more important now than ever to understand the power of self-acceptance and self-compassion in buffering the stress response and the psychological and physiological impact it has on our health. Neuroscientists have proven that critical self-talk is perceived by the brain as a threat to our survival and generates a similar stress response to an external traumatic event. These webinars will allow participants to assess their own level of self-compassion. This webinar will discuss the definition and elements of self-compassion, the stages of self-compassion and obstacles to self-compassion. Also, this will is primarily experiential and will introduce participants to a variety of self-compassion exercises that they can easily practice themselves or teach to their clients.

Waiting for the Mud to Settle: Mindfulness as a Coping Strategy During Chaotic Times

ID: 1014WEB

During times of uncertainty and chaos, feelings of fear, anxiety, overwhelm and grief are likely to rise to the surface and dominate our awareness. Mindfulness involves focusing awareness and non-judgmental attention to the experience of the present moment. When practicing mindfulness, we do not push our emotions aside, but notice them without judgment, with acceptance and curiosity instead. It has been noted that what we resist persists and this gentle allowing of our experience in the present moment has been scientifically proven to improve physical and emotional health. This webinar will provide participants with a basic foundation of the principles of mindfulness in addition to experiential practice of a variety of mindfulness exercises. Jon Kabbat-Zinn, a pioneer in bringing mindfulness to Western culture stated: “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” At this unprecedented time in our history, mindfulness can be an effective coping strategy for helping professionals, their loved ones and their clients.
