  1. Basics of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

    October 20, 2023 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

    This workshop will describe basic information about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence-based psychotherapy designed to help people accept their thoughts and feelings, choose valued directions, and take action to build more meaningful lives. We will review the six core processes; identify key ACT techniques and metaphors; and discuss how ACT and CBT are similar and different.

Learn the two predominant models of disability and identify ableism, both on a micro level as well as a macro level of discrimination. Identify ethical considerations surrounding unconscious bias towards disabled individuals and problematic language related to it, as well as other ethical challenges related to less visible disabilities and disclosure. Engages social workers in critical ethical awareness of disability inclusion principles, anti-ableist language, and accessibility in physical spaces as well as in technology.

  3. Community Conversation: Processing the Violence in the Middle East

    October 20, 2023 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

    We invite you to a Community Conversation around Processing the Violence in the Middle East on Friday, October 20, from 1-2 PM ET.

    The violence in the Middle East has left many of us with sorrow, fear, and other profound feelings.  Community Conversations provide a space for our school community to come together to discuss painful and complex topics taking place in our world - and sometimes, to just gather together in grief. In this light, we invite you to a community conversation about the recent attacks and the complicated devastation that continues in the region.

    This is a time for conversation – to share feelings, raise concerns, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear!  If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)

    About the format. With these smaller Community Conversations, our hope is to explore restorative dialogue 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.
