What Does Economic Security Look Like and How to Get There
May 18, 2022 - 12:00pm to 3:00pm
U.S. Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) will join the University of Michigan’s William Elliott III and Trina Shanks, Michael Sherraden of Washington University, Thomas Shapiro of Brandeis University and other experts for an online discussion on the combination of income- and asset-based policies that can broaden economic security equitably.
In the first of two sessions, speakers will detail the theory and evidence for integrating policies to provide children and families with enough to survive today and something to live for. In the second session, speakers will address how income- and asset-based policies can be integrated to broaden economic security.
The goal of the webinar is to identify ways to generate policies that help more families achieve economic security. With this objective in mind, discussants will discuss why both income and asset approaches are needed for families to truly be able to achieve economic security and how these approaches can be combined.

The Christian Religion and Sex: The Deconstruction of Shame
May 20, 2022 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm
In our world, there are an increasing number of people currently being very vocal about the trauma they have experienced from the Christian faith in relation to their sexuality. Many are now seeking sex therapy and sexual healing because of those traumas. In this course, we will look at a brief history of the Christian Church and the effects its messaging has had on people’s sexual lives. We will examine the overall messages we have received around sex from the institution of church in the Christian faith and how those messages have lived in our bodies. We will then learn ways to deconstruct those messages in order to help those who suffer from religious harm, and practice some healing exercises to use with clients who come from religious backgrounds. These exercises can be adapted to be used with those from a range of faith backgrounds.
Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
