"Resistance is in our DNA” Addressing Anti-Black Racism in
Social Work Practice
Presenters Jana Vinsky MSW, RSW of Liberation Practice International
(LPI) Inc., and Dr. Akua Benjamin will share their decades of
experience working with anti-Black racism, to help you integrate
anti-Black racism theory and approaches in your practice and organization.
Description & Learning Goals:
With the recent global attention on anti-Black racism, many of us
social workers have been questioning if we have done enough to address
anti-Black racism in our practice, as well as in the world at large.
This workshop will begin to explore such questions, as we examine what
anti-Black racism is and how to address it in our everyday social work
practice. We will also learn how critical reflective practice can help
us operationalize anti-Black racism theory into our everyday social
work practice, at all levels, and in all roles. The workshop will be
reflective and interactive.
This training has been designed for social workers who work in
community-based settings supporting mental health for adults, youth,
and/or older adults.
