    2022 Virtual Winkelman Lecture Part I Linking Lives to Disrupt the Cycle of Social Isolation

    Karen Fredriksen Goldsen, PhD, Professor, University of Washington School of Social Work

    Loneliness is a serious hazard to human health, and often associated with cardiovascular disease, poor mental and physical health, and premature death. Social isolation in the U.S. has reached epidemic proportions, creating a largely invisible public health crisis with few resources. In her presentation, Professor Karen Fredriksen Goldsen will discuss the intensification of social isolation in the context of COVID-19. She will share her landmark research on aging among LGBTQ adults, who have historically experienced significant social restrictions, and discuss how these findings can provide effective interventions for anyone living in isolation.

     
    Keynote Speaker

    Karen Fredriksen Goldsen, PhD, is a professor and director of the Goldsen Institute at the School of Social Work, University of Washington. She is a nationally and internationally recognized scholar addressing issues of health equity, disparities, resilience, longevity, and well-being among resilient yet underserved populations. She is the principal investigator of many landmark studies, including National Health, Aging, and Sexuality/Gender Study (NHAS): Aging with Pride (R01), the first federally funded longitudinal study of LGBTQ midlife and older adults; Innovations in Dementia Empowerment and Action (IIDEA, R01), the first randomly controlled trial (RCT) for LGBTQ+ older adults living with memory loss and their care partners; as well as other funded studies that identify factors accounting for health trajectories and longevity in underserved communities. Based on the findings of this research, she is developing and testing innovative solutions to complex social problems. Dr. Fredriksen Goldsen is author of five books and special issues and more than 100 publications in leading journals. Her research has been cited by top news sources such as the New York Times, Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, CNN, NBC News, Forbes, and more than 50 international news outlets.

    2022 Virtual Winkelman Lecture Part II The Future of LGBTQ+ Caregiving: Visibility and Transformation

    Angela K. Perone, PhD, JD, MSW, MA, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Fellow, National Academy of Medicine, Fellow, U.S. Senate

    The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted and underscored caregiving issues across the globe. Many communities have adapted to new circumstances that require new approaches to caregiving. LGBTQ+ communities are no different. However, with a rich and unique history of caregiving from families of choice, LGBTQ+ communities offer important insights for caregiving for a larger population. To understand these possibilities, this discussion will provide a brief historical overview of LGBTQ+ caregiving, discuss key issues and hot topics, and conclude with a vision for the future.

     
    Keynote Speaker

    Angela (Angie) K. Perone, PhD, JD, MSW, MA is currently a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Fellow through the National Academy of Medicine and currently serving as a staff member in the U.S. Senate.

Perone is a licensed attorney and interdisciplinary scholar. Her research focuses on the intersection of law and social services with a particular focus on healthy and equitable aging, caregiving, and rights construction among health and social service providers.

She subsequently served as the founding Executive Director of SAGE Metro Detroit where she grew its annual budget from under $50,000 to over $750,000 in five years and helped to provide new services for LGBTQ+ older adults in Michigan.

  8. Sexual Grief and The Hero's Journey

    February 18, 2022 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    Pain and memories from sexual grief ambush clients and make them feel as if they have been taken hostage. Every time the surge of emotions arrives on the scene, the hostage feels exposed and hopeless. Sexual grief is often confused with sexual trauma, and though they work in tandem, they are separate. Learn to distinguish between the story of sexual trauma and the effect of grief on those stories. The silences get broken and the hostage gets released.

    The Hero's Journey will be used to show a systematic approach to breaking through the status quo of the dark night of the soul that sexual grief exposes. The self needs a base of empathy, empowerment and a strategy that also includes hostage negotiating techniques to face the non-linear aspect of sexual grief. Everyone has a warning label, the warning label portrays self-protection and what needs to be dealt with while in the depths of the cave.

  9. Undoing Racism Workgroup

    February 24, 2022 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    Undoing Racism Workgroup

    Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at the individual, school, and structural levels.

    This workgroup was established in 2019 after students, staff, and faculty took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism© workshops. Since then, the Undoing Racism workgroup has been working to implement the People’s Institute anti-racist community organizing model – recognizing that community organizing within our school is critical to move toward an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program to bring along all members of the community.

    The Undoing Racism workgroup also emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures that benefit and maintain power for white people. Our work has largely been focused on building collective community – a fundamental step in the People’s Institute organizing model. Our dialogue and strategic planning to advance towards an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program and school community must begin with building relationships and strengthening community bonds to engage in internal and external anti-racism work.

    Meetings are held monthly on the last Thursday of the month from 12-2pm. All members of our school community are invited to attend.

    Upcoming Meetings:

    February 24th, 2022

    March 31st, 2022

    April 28th, 2022

    May 26th, 2022
