"The Practice of Mattering - A Person Centered Approach": Honoring the Dignity and Worth of the Person in Victim Status

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.

Racial Framing: How Racial Framing is Used Among People of Color

Racial framing can have strong effects on programs, policies, and even evaluations.  Racial framing developed as a justification for the exploitation of minorities and has been a primary causal factor in the persistence of racism. By being aware of its pattern, structure, origins, and how racism framing generates effects, we can significantly reduce its influence, thus enhancing the rigor of our studies by controlling for a potential bias that’s often convert. Stories play a critical role in framing and reframing processes. This course is for everyone seeking to gain an understanding of Racial Frames and its negative effect on us as a whole society.

The Significance of Connections During Challenging Times

This course aims to educate participants on the importance of connections in our relationships, especially since spending the last two years either socially distancing, isolating, and/or in quarantine in our personal and professional lives. COVID-19 has been such a disruptive force in our lives and continues to be a challenge; alongside the deep divide within our nation stemming from civil unrest connected to longstanding entrenched structural discrimination. We will focus on relationship building and maintenance. Participants will discuss the importance of cultivating quality connections, review concepts essential to effectively utilizing relationships, increasing awareness of barriers that may interfere with making quality connections, and identify strategies that will assist social workers in the moment making meaningful connections to others, especially persons in client status.
