“Resistance is in our DNA”
Addressing Anti-Black Racism in Social Work Practice
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.
This training has been designed for social workers who work in community-based settings supporting mental health for adults, youth, and/or older adults.
