“Resistance is in our DNA”
Addressing Anti-Black Racism in Social Work Practice
Presenters:Jana Vinsky MSW, RSW of Liberation Practice International (LPI) Inc., and Dr. Akua Benjamin will share their decades of experience working with anti-Black racism, to help you integrate anti-Black racism theory and approaches in your practice and organization.
Description & Learning Goals:With the recent global attention on anti-Black racism, many of us social workers have been questioning if we have done enough to address anti-Black racism in our practice, as well as in the world at large. This workshop will begin to explore such questions, as we examine what anti-Black racism is and how to address it in our everyday social work practice. We will also learn how critical reflective practice can help us operationalize anti-Black racism theory into our everyday social work practice, at all levels, and in all roles. The workshop will be reflective and interactive.
Audience:This training has been designed for social workers who work in community-based settings supporting mental health for adults, youth, and/or older adults.
