  1. Community Conversation on U.S. Supreme Court Decision Overturning Roe v. Wade

    June 29, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    We invite you to join a community conversation about the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, eliminating the constitutional right to an abortion in the U.S. 

    As social workers, we know that individual actions can make a difference. We encourage conversations that bridge this deep and divisive gap in policy on reproductive health. By raising our voices to increase awareness and reaching out to provide support, we can create a better society for all.

    With these smaller community conversations, our hope is to utilize restorative dialogue practices and build community, creating a space where we are all teachers and learners. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.

  39. Alternatives to Policing: Unarmed Crisis Response and the Role of Social Workers

    September 22, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    Police violence against Black bodies rightfully has forced society to look more closely at our policing and public safety practices. The #BlackLivesMatter movement has highlighted the racist origins of policing in this country, and how excessive use of force often targets Black people with deadly results. Disproportionately, police are forced to respond to social, economic, mental/physical health emergencies. Today, community leaders and elected officials are working together to “reimagine our public safety,” by creating, for example, “unarmed crisis response teams” who work alongside police departments. What is the role of social workers in this “reimagined” public safety system? Does our involvement violate any of the professional standards in our NASW Code of Ethics? Join us to hear from an array of panelists working on this issue in communities, including Assistant Professor at UM Social Work, Daicia Price; Chair of the Ann Arbor Independent Community Police Oversight Commission (ICPOC), Dr. Lisa Jackson, Senior Pastor of Vineyard Church Ann Arbor, and member of the Coalition for Re-envisioning our Safety (CORS), Donnell Wyche.

  40. Caregiver Kinks: Everything You Need to Know About Imaginative Power Exchange

    September 23, 2022 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

    BDSM and kink have gone mainstream in a big way. Thanks to the popularity of several books and movies, it seems like almost everyone is familiar with Dominant/submissive relationships now! And while there are many people living out their Red Room of Pain fantasies these days, that's far from the only form of consensual power exchange that D/s can take. In this workshop, we'll explore the lesser known, and lesser understood, power exchange dynamic known as Caregiver Kink. This imaginative form of Dominance and submission weaves role play into the BDSM relationship- primarily by assuming personas that are either much younger than the individuals biological age (Little play) or by role playing as a non-human persona entirely (pet play). ...

  41. Social Work and the Global Refugee Crisis

    September 30, 2022 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

    The scale of the global refugee crisis is staggering. More than 82 million people worldwide have been displaced from their homes. With the increase in refugees from war-torn countries like Ukraine, Afghanistan, and Syria resettling into the United States, Canada, Australia, and European countries, social workers must be equipped to address the unique challenges facing refugees in practice and policy contexts.

    This interactive webinar, informative in nature, will inform participants on the scope of the global refugee crisis, exploring the current policies and laws that directly impact refugees from war-torn countries. Moreover, this workshop will also explore the role of social workers to address the specific needs of refugees, drawing on current research to support refugee children, youth, and their families in the U.S. and abroad.

    October 20, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    This discussion is co-sponsored by the University of Michigan Ford School of Public Policy's Poverty Solutions.

    From the cash bail system, to fines and fees while incarcerated, to the cost of reentering society, our society functions on a punitive system of fines and fees that often catapults those already experiencing hardship into a spiraling cycle of debt and repayments - never fully able to catch up. Join us as we explore the inequity surrounding fines and fees in our criminal justice system and its role in increasing race-based disparities. Featured panelists include Washtenaw County Prosecutors Eli Savit and Victoria Burton-Harris; and Dr. Meghan O’ Neil, Research Scholar at the Population Studies Center, Institute for Social Research. This panel will be facilitated by MSW Student and Co-founder of Michigan Liberation, Nicholas Buckingham.

  46. Evidence-based Parenting Interventions to Help Parents Reduce the Use of Physical Punishment

    October 21, 2022 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

    This course focuses on an issue that many social workers confront in their practice with children and families - the use of discipline and physical punishment in childrearing. This course examines research on the effectiveness of a wide range of parental disciplinary approaches.

Content of this course is based on the book published by the instructor titled "Ending the physical punishment of children: A guide for clinicians and practitioners."

  47. Suicide Risk Assessment and Safety Planning

    November 4, 2022 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Nearly 50% of individuals who end life by suicide see a primary care provider within a month of death, yet suicide risk assessment and treatment is consistently difficult in practice. With the majority of mental health services in the US being delivered by social workers, it is imperative that risk assessment and safety planning knowledge and skills are in place for our work with clients with the ultimate goal being to prevent premature suicidal death.

    This webinar will discuss and present on suicide as public health issue in the US, risk and protective factors, warning signs, barriers to help-seeking, risk assessment process and risk formulation, safety planning, and cultural humility in risk assessment with use of a clinical case. This workshop is also focused on the adult population.

  67. Death by a Thousand Paper Cuts: Understanding & Engaging Microaggressions

    December 31, 2024 (all day)

    "But you speak so well for a _____!" Everyone of us has experienced something said to us, or an interaction focused on us and at least one of our identities, that has made us pause and say "ouch!" internally. These small, often unintentional interactions are a form of discrimination called microaggressions, and research has shown that these small injustices can add up, and result in poorer mental health, lower self-esteem, and overall negative outcomes. That said, because of their implicit nature, we ALL are capable of microaggressing others at some point, whether we realize it or not. Participants in this workshop will identify what microaggressions are, how they are connected to unconscious bias, what to do when we mess up and perpetuate a microaggression, and how to better engage microaggressions in the workplace, the classroom, and the world at large.
