Believing Black Lives Matter: Integrating Strategy and Spontaneity in Social Movement for Students and Early Career Professionals Webinar (1-20-17)
This webinar kicks off the Spring 2017 Division 17 Diversity and Public Interest Webinar Series. Many thanks to the wonderful and powerful presenters, Dr. Candice Crowell, Dr. Jameca Falconer, and Reuben Faloughi. What does it look like when we believe Black Lives Matter at the systemic, organizational, community, interpersonal, and intrapsychic levels? This webinar will build on the work of Black Lives Matter activism in and outside of counseling and psychology to detail attitudinal and positional strategies that forward social justice. The webinar will also highlight a theory of spontaneity to guide when and how to go “off script” to engage creative methods of social movement. Practice, education/training, research, and leadership implications will be discussed.
Counseling Psychologists for Peace and Action: Putting Social Justice Theory and Research into Practice (2-16-17)
Given the current sociocultural and sociopolitical climate, the call to systematically engage in social justice work is crucial. Despite the continuously growing body of scholarship on social justice-oriented topics and the infusion of social justice theory into therapy and teaching, there remains little discussion on what social justice work looks like and entails, limited practice-based instruction, and political and social activism can even be discouraged within various institutions (e.g., the academy, professional organizations, counseling centers/practices). This webinar aims to facilitate a discussion on how to put social justice theory and research into practice within various stages of professional identity (i.e., student, ECP, and mid-career professional).
