  1. Visiting Speaker Nev Jones Discusses Mental Illness, Disability and the Grand Challenges for Social Work: Disability Invisibility as Two Steps Forward or Two Steps Back?

    February 20, 2024 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

    Jones' presentation focuses on the Grand Challenges for Social Work, raising concerns and questions about the de-centering and, where named, positioning of both disability and, more specifically, mental illness / psychiatric disability, across the original Grand Challenges.  Highlighting the ironies of a field that trains more public sector mental health providers than any other and yet largely fails to meaningfully engage with critical disability studies, mad studies and service user/survivor led critiques of the status quo, the speaker will reflect on structural, epistemic and hermeneutic injustices buried in the Grand Challenges.  The talk will conclude with ideas for potentially transformative but ‘non-reformist’ reforms.

BP aims to center community knowledge in the fight against white extremism by challenging ourselves to explore how we have internalized the culture of white extremism so that we can overcome it and instead share love and power in our communities. By spending an interactive and introspective day learning together through breakout sessions on special topics, affinity group meetings to connect individuals with shared identities, and wisdom shared by our guest speakers, we can grow and Build Power together.
