Workshop: Racial Microaggression in Clinical Practice
through Catholic Charities of Oregon

Each one-day workshop will be held from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm at Catholic Charities Clark Family Center. MONDAY'S WORKSHOP IS REPEATED ON TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY.

Racial Microaggressions are defined as “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults toward people of color”. Racial Microaggressions are the result of unconscious or implicit bias that seeps into interactions with marginalized people. These microaggressions have deep and detrimental impacts on the mental and physical health of people of color and they have enormous impact on the way in which people of color interact with mental health treatment and services.

This training will support clinicians in recognizing and stopping implicit bias that affects the way in which they engage in clinical practice with clients of color. It will help clinicians to improve their clinical relationship with clients through the reduction of implicit bias interactions for overall improved interventions and outcomes based in equity and social justice.

Benefits:

  • Enhanced clinical rapport with clients.
  • Long term engagement with clients of color.
  • Overall improvement of services to clients from communities of color.
  • Certificate offered - C.E.U. (Continuing Educational Units) through the National Association of Social Workers.
  • Beneficial for developmental and personal growth goals

Presenters:

Angie Mejia is a doctoral candidate in the department of sociology at Syracuse University. Her current research encompasses immigration, mental health, ethnicity, bio/psychopolitics, and citizenship by looking specifically at U.S. Latinas’ experiences with depression and depression treatment.

Kat Kelley, MSW, is the Director of Programs and Integration with Catholic Charities of Oregon. Her areas of practice and expertise include trauma, mental health, domestic and sexual violence, immigration, race equity and community organizing. Ms. Kelley has almost 20 years of experience in anti-racist social movements and building white ally identities. She is a clinician and macro practice social worker who focuses on anti-oppressive practice and social justice.

Introduction to Restorative Justice in Schools
through Resolutions Northwest

Explore why and how Restorative Justice can be a promising alternative to exclusionary practices.

Monday and Tuesday, July 17th and 18th, from 9:00am – 4:00pm

“It was a great balance of circle, lecture, group work and movement. The topic had me 100% engaged.”

Restorative Justice is a valuable alternative to exclusionary practices. It seeks to restore community and repair harm while holding all involved accountable. Unacceptably high school push-out rates disproportionately affect students of color, students with disabilities and youth who identify as LGBT.

Restorative Justice is not a prescribed program but a philosophy based on community building and repairing harm. We will discuss the components that can make the approach successful such as circles, restorative inquiries and dialogues, community service and mediation. We look at possibilities for implementation that are open to classroom teachers and other school personnel. While doing so we will keep a keen eye on equity issues. The workshop will be a combination of lecture, discussions, videos and hands-on practice activities.

This training focuses on Restorative Justice in schools. We particularly invite and encourage school counselors, behavior specialists, administrators, teachers, security personnel, and those studying to work in schools.

Fight, flee, flop – or flip? Transform conflict through Aikido
Two Rivers Aikikai

Put the experience of mindful conflict resolution into your body!

When conflicts arise – perhaps racism comes up, a co-worker pushes our buttons, or we’re embroiled in family dynamics – most of us have a default setting, and it’s not necessarily the most helpful one. In this workshop, we will explore how to become more mindful in those moments so we can choose a response that is more aligned with our values and the outcomes we want to achieve. We will include physical exercises to help you access a deeper level of learning.

Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art with the ultimate goal of convincing humanity that violence is not an effective means of improving society. While this is not a martial arts class, it is grounded in our belief that the lessons of Aikido can help people develop a centered, balanced and sensitive human spirit.

No martial arts experience is required. We work with participants to adapt each exercise to your own level of mobility and comfort (or you can learn by observing if you prefer).

Obon Dance Workshop
Japanese American Historical Plaza

As part of Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center's new exhibit "American Obon: Dancing in Joy and Remembrance," Oregon Nikkei Endowment and Oregon Buddhist Temple are hosting a public Bon Odori workshop on Saturday, July 29, 6-8pm.

The summer obon festival is an eagerly anticipated event within Nikkei communities throughout North America. People come for the memorial observance, camaraderie, cultural performances, and food, but perhaps the most iconic element of the obon festival occurs when participants gather in a circle for the bon odori (obon dancing).

"American Obon" will trace the development of bon odori in North America. Curated by Dr. Wynn Kiyama (Portland State University and Portland Taiko), this exhibit will be the first of its kind in North America.

Please join us for this obon dance workshop at the Japanese American Historical Plaza, Tom McCall Waterfront Park, Saturday July 29, 6-8pm.

Understanding Trauma and Building Resiliency
through Resolutions Northwest

Register here: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/trauma-resiliency/

Trauma is a biological rather than a pathological response, and the body has an innate capacity to heal and restore itself. This workshop will focus on the impact of trauma and how resiliency can be restored using a skills-based approach. Participants will be introduced to the Community Resiliency Model developed by the Trauma Resource Institute and have an opportunity to practice the skills. Learn to take a resilience-oriented approach to Trauma Informed Care, moving beyond information to neuroscience-based ACTION. Gain practical skills to build greater capacity for self-regulation and self-care.

This training is for anyone interested in learning more about trauma-informed care and how to incorporate skills for well being into their personal and/or professional lives – whether for themselves or for those they support.
