About This NYSED Social Work Board Approved Webinar (4-CEUs)

This lunchtime webinar series offers 4 continuing education contact hours and is held over 2-sessions: Wednesday, April 19th and Wednesday, April 26th of 2017 (11:30 AM – 1:45 PM, on both days). NYSED Social Work Board Approved Certificate will be awarded upon completing both sessions.

Oppression Theories: One Cannot Resolve What Is Not Acknowledged provide a framework for understanding power and privilege and the intersectionality of class, race, gender, self and group identity within the context of social work practice. Reflective exercise will be offered such that participants can begin to explore personal biases and stereotypes that can affect the understanding of human behavior and dynamics in the practitioner-client relationship. Research from Paulo Freire’s (Pedagogy of the Oppressed), Molefi Asante’s (Afrocentric Idea), and Michelle Alexander’s (The New Jim Crow) will be introduced as a framework for understanding oppression on a systemic level (macro) and in the context on the practitioner-client relationship (micro).
