WEBINAR: Antiracist and Trauma-Informed: Enhancing Social and Emotional Learning to Build Resilience

January 26th, 2024, Noon-1 PM CST

NASWWI Chapter 0 731

Presented by Sara Kotzin, LCSW, DSW

Social workers play a vital role in addressing children’s social and emotional reactions to trauma.
We can facilitate trauma-informed, antiracist interventions in our work with children and with
adults, to ensure we are building safe environments essential for healthy development. This
presentation will illustrate the need for an intersectional approach to social and emotional
teaching that actively addresses racism and trauma. It will introduce elements of The Body’s
Story, a play-based classroom intervention developed by the presenter, that centers somatic
awareness in teachings of emotions and integrates play and storytelling with a goal of enhancing
internal and external resilience.

This course examines how one’s culture impacts decision making in various treatment settings. Providers are constantly faced with ethical choices resulting in ambiguous outcomes and difficult decisions that may be morally confusing. Understanding cultural concepts enables providers to bridge the difference between themselves and diverse populations. Participants will acquire a better understanding of the ethical decision-making process when cross-cultural conflicts occur while addressing implications of unconscious biases.  The workshop will address these issues through a combination of interactive dialogue, focused discussion, and applied-practice exercises.
