This interactive workshop is centered in group discussion that will include the use of personal stories and experiential activities to help explore and dig deep into the concept of cultural humility. This conversational approach helps to explore the many different perspectives on social work competencies, intersectionality, and cultural sensitivity.
By the end of the training, participants will be able to:
- Unpack the discourse surrounding teen dating relationships, healthy teen sexuality, and the influence of technology and social media as a whole
- Describe the ways in which abusers misuse technology, including spyware, GPS tracking, social media, spoofing, and many online spaces to harass and stalk survivors
- Identify how service providers can support teens in both recognizing red flags and in safety planning strategies while continuing to use technology and social media
- Explore the history of domestic violence and the feminist movement through the lens of intersectionality
- Define domestic violence and identify common dynamics and tactics used by abusive partners to maintain power and control
- Dismantle common myths about domestic violence
- Identify best practices for providing advocacy
- Define trauma and its impact on survivors
