Anti-Oppressive Practice is Violence Prevention Work

ID: 1310WEB

Former title: Incorporating Anti-Racism Practice into Violence Prevention Work. This webinar explores the ways that racism and oppression have shaped anti-violence movements and how we can dismantle these in our own work with clients, within our organizations and in our communities. Participants will discuss how systemic racism, intergenerational racial trauma and more shape survivor experiences and the ways in which the white mainstream violence against women movement have perpetuated these harms. Facilitators will guide participants through a self-assessment of individual and organizational practices and provide action steps to incorporating actively anti-racist, anti-oppressive principles into their everyday work as a form of primary violence prevention. This webinar was developed using an intersectional lens and seeks to amplify and prioritize voices of BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and other marginalized participants.

Gender Diversity Level I: An Introduction

ID: 5371WEB

How can I keep track of the many types of gender identity terms and experiences out there? What are the best ways to talk to clients about gender identity? How do I know what I don't know about gender diversity? This webinar is intended to give an in-depth overview of the basics of gender diversity for clinicians. It covers the many different aspects that make up a person's experience of gender, including identity, gender expression/presentation, gender role, and biological sex, and provides a model that can be utilized with clients to explore their own identities. The webinar covers a variety of gender identities and the best language to use when talking about them, as well as explaining the differences between gender identity and sexual orientation. We will discuss what we do and don't know about how transgender identities occur as a basis for a gender-affirming model of care. A model that understands the experience of gender as internal and separate from one's biology. Finally, we will discuss important considerations for culturally affirming care of transgender and other gender diverse clients and how clinicians can prepare for this work and consider both the challenges and rewards of working with the transgender population.

This webinar is the first of a 3-part series presented by Stephanie Sasso, PyD.

Gender Diversity Level II: Overview of a Model for Assessment and Treatment

ID: 5372WEB

This program is the second in a series, and is recommended (but not required) after taking the Introduction to Gender Diversity webinar (#5371WEB) for those who do not have a strong basis or prior in-depth understanding of gender identity.

It will bring participants beyond considerations of gender identity to begin developing a deep sense of gender dysphoria; the primary distress impacting the mental health and wellbeing of those who choose to undergo social and/or medical gender transition, and the primary reason gender diverse individuals seek gender-related mental healthcare. It will explore the experience of dysphoria in depth, as well as the opposing experience of gender euphoria. It will then cover how these concepts can be explored with clients to not only assess dysphoria clinically, but develop a targeted treatment plan based on different types of dysphoric experiences. It highlights a number of areas in which the treatment of gender dysphoria differs from traditional psychotherapy practice, requiring systemic interventions on a number of levels, and coordination of care between a variety of providers. This program is perfect for those who want to take their work with gender diverse individuals to the next level, becoming a nuanced, skilled evaluator, prepared to develop individualized treatment plans for these individuals, and for those who want to develop strong assessment skills before embarking on working with this population.

Gender Diversity Level III - Treatment of Gender Dysphoria

ID: 5356WEB

It is highly recommended to take this training only after taking Gender Diversity Level II - Overview of a Model for Assessment and Treatment.

This training utilizes specific learning about sub-types of gender dysphoria and other relevant experiences common to transgender clients presented in the Level II webinar to inform Dr. Sasso's treatment model. The model is based on Dr. Sasso's work with the transgender population across the lifespan, using an in-depth assessment of gender dysphoria, expanded developmental history, and assessment of internal gender distress as well as environmental stressors to inform treatment decisions. This webinar provides in-depth case examples of clients of varying ages with diverse gender-related treatment needs. It covers differential diagnosis between primary mental health conditions, impacts of minority stress, and gender dysphoria and discusses the need and process for frequent re-assessment. It provides examples of working with clients with more than one source of minority stress (intersectional identities), working with a medical care team, as well as with families of transgender youth and young adults.

This webinar is the final of a 3-part series.

Learners are recommended to take Level I and Level II or has a strong subject knowledge in this area, before attending Level III.

LGBT Issues and the Law

ID: 4073WEB

Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered often requires clients to view who they are and what their rights are as defined by law. A general understanding of what the law says is required in many situations, such as: legalizing a relationship, ending a relationship, housing, protecting civil rights in employment, and asserting one's rights when it comes to discrimination and hate crime victimization. This webinar will address what the helping professional needs to know when it comes to the New Jersey civil union and domestic partnership statutes, adoption law, the Law Against Discrimination and Hate Crimes Act, as well as the impact of Federal laws such as The Civil Rights Act, the Defense of Marriage Act, and the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, among other things. The participant will also learn who they can refer their client to and what kind of assistance is available to them, as well what changes are currently pending to make New Jersey safer and more equal for LGBT clients. Knowledge of the law is not necessary as the presenter is committed to making law understandable for social workers and other helping professionals.

ID: 1328WEB

This webinar's scope utilizes a cross cultural perspective in examining, exploring and identifying appropriate clinical strategies in trauma response.

Social Media: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly from a Social Work Perspective

ID: 4206WEB

This webinar will examine the impact social media, music, and advertising have on today's society. Overexposure to certain media outlets can influence how people develop their value system and how they make decisions on moral issues and peer relationships. We know this to be particularly true with individuals who have experienced trauma and significant losses. By examining music, videos, and advertisement campaigns, we identify the negative impact of imagery and subliminal messages, and discuss ways to help individuals identify why they make the choices they make online. We will explore how to increase media literacy by educating and empowering individuals to use critical thinking skills and to see the direct and unintended consequences associated with technology. The importance of legislative advocacy will also be discussed.

Understanding and Addressing Racial Trauma
