Social Work

Microaggressions occur more often than we would like to acknowledge.  When a person experiences microaggressions in the context of a collaborative and supportive relationship the impact can be devastating. The result can turn people away from one another and create a climate of hostile and social exclusion. In this 3-hour workshop, participants will look closely at implicit bias and microaggressions. Participants will engage in a community conversation on stereotypes, microaggressions and implicit bias. Discuss where they feel challenged and ways to minimize occurrences of implicit bias and different ways to respond when you are the recipient or offender of microaggressions.

Victimization can leave a person feeling lost and disconnected from who they are, struggling with mattering and feeling a sense of dignity and worth. According to interpersonal personhood, one’s personhood is constructed and maintained in a social environment, rooted in relationships with others.  A caring relationship and support social workers provide can help a person in victim status have a transformative experience that can help them reconceptualize who they are and reconnect to a sense of mattering, dignity and worth.  In this 3-hour course participants will learn about personhood and the person-centered approach; identifying strategies they can utilize to create experiences of valuing and mattering for persons victimized.

M. Thomas Pablo

Thomas is a passionate and energetic teacher who really enjoys being with his students.  Here is what you can expect from him in the classroom: 

A first-hand knowledge that this is the quickest and best path to becoming a CFP® practitioner.  Thomas is a Fast Track Graduate from 2006.   

Understanding the material can be enjoyable when you learn it, instead of just memorizing it. He helps you understand the material by taking complex ideas and breaking them down to simple concepts using everyday examples. You will improve your practice immediately through applying CFP® concepts that have been learned over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. The secret to a good all-day classroom experience is being charismatic and entertaining all while staying on point.  Thomas is invested in the success of his students to pass the CFP® and become lifelong practitioners.  

“Living through 2008 made me realize the importance of independence and a focus on planning and not just investments. Money has a purpose – educating a child, protecting a lifestyle, or providing stability during uncertain times. Very rarely is it to simply make more money. I became a Certified Financial Planner to gain a deeper understanding of the components of a client’s life that go well beyond investments and often have a greater impact on achieving one’s goals.”

Thomas has a strong tech background and started in the financial services industry in 1993 and worked for Merrill Lynch starting in 2004.  In 2011, Thomas fused his tech background, his MBA, and his CFP® credential to help build a financial planning-based RIA.  Thomas has been working closely with people to help them reach their most cherished goals ever since.   

Thomas has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia and received his MBA from Georgetown University with the highest honors (Beta Gamma Sigma).  A lifelong Washingtonian, he now lives in Bethesda, MD with his wife, three boys and an incredible black lab.
