About the Workshop:

This interactive workshop will provide a framework for social workers to stay resilient, engaged, and responsive, while staying present with the impacts of violence and oppression toward community members/clients who are part of targeted populations. The workshop will provide a trauma sensitive framework for how social workers can take meaningful action individually and as a community toward a more just world and sustainable practice.


The Workshop will be followed by our annual celebration luncheon.
