1.5 CEs in Cross-Cultural Practice | Are You Ready To Become An Anti-Racist Organization?, with Susan Yi-Millette, MSW, & Taylor Hall, Ph.D

Wednesday, November 30 (12:00 - 1:30pm EST) | Online registrations are closing on November 28. Click here to register

Social workers have been complicit in facilitating racial injustice and are integral in both perpetuating and alleviating racial inequities. While this is fact, the Social Work Code of Ethics states that social workers should not practice, condone, facilitate, or collaborate with any form of discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, political belief, religion, or mental or physical disability. It has become clear that White Supremacy Culture and Racial Injustice/Inequities have been occurring in our institutions, as well as within policies, practices, and procedures. This workshop presents a model of developing a Racial Justice Council within an organization to document evidence of racial/ethnic injustices and provide data-driven recommendations for change and racial justice. Registration fees: $15 for members and $35 for non-members.

Despite all of the training for suicide prevention, there is little to no training for dealing with a client's suicide. Research has found that the loss of a client to suicide is the “most profoundly disturbing event of one’s professional career”  (Hendin, et al. 2000). This presentation will fortify clinician's with practical information and preparation for the unfortunate event of a client suicide. Registration fees: $15 for members and $35 for non-members.
