  4. 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.

  5. 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). ...

  7. Fines and Fees: Punishing the Poor & Increasing Disparity

    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; MSW Student and Co-founder of Michigan Liberation, Nicholas Buckingham; and Dr. Meghan O’ Neil, Research Scholar at the Population Studies Center, Institute for Social Research.

  8. Trauma or ADHD? Trauma-Informed Tools for Working with ADHD

    October 21, 2022 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

    ADHD is the most studied diagnosis of children and adults. This course will discuss the latest research findings, provide greater understanding of the effects ADHD has on the brain and how these effects are very similar to those left on the brain by traumatic experiences. We will discuss the spectrum of trauma, and how even small sometimes unnoticed brain injuries can cause symptoms comparable to those recognized as common ADHD symptoms. We will draw a clear connection between the spectrum of trauma and ADHD. We will also look at demographics of who is diagnosed with ADHD...

  9. Suicide Risk Assessment and Safety Planning

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

    Suicide is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States and worldwide. 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.

  10. The Role of Civil Disobedience in Collective Action

    November 10, 2022 - 7:00am to 8:30am

    After the murder of George Floyd, Colin Kapearnick famously took a knee at an NFL football game, receiving unjustified backlash. It wasn’t until giant corporations, like Nike, voiced their support of Colin - and the #BlackLivesMatter movement in general - that others also came to his defense. But civil disobedience in the name of social justice isn’t new, and it isn’t new from professional athletes. The Black Power gestures at the 1968 Olympics killed careers, and helped galvanize a civil rights movement. In the digital age, gestures, small catchphrases, hashtags, and stories of 140 characters can kill careers, change policies, and save lives. Join us to discuss the role of social media and civil disobedience in political and social movements. Special guests TBA.
