I need a minute: A Time for Collective Mourning monthly series
Presented by Dr. Ebony White and Dr. Shon Smith - Second Friday's at 1PM EST
Next Event: Friday, October 23, 2020 at 1PM EST
Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd… Unfortunately, these are the most recent African American victims that have lost their lives by the hands of law enforcement or vigilantes for being Black in America. The global observation of this loss of life from a historical, racial, oppressive, policing system has and continues to have a significant impact on the mental health and physical health of all Americans witnessing these actions and responses. We invite all members of the counseling community to join us as we understand the need and purpose of a space for community and collective mourning as we continue the work of pursuing social justice.

Presented by: Dr. Judy Daniels & Dr. Rebecca Toporek
Thursday, November 5, 2020 at 7pm EST
By popular demand: this webinar is the first of two to discuss practical elements of what advocacy looks like in the counseling profession. This webinar will highlight the Advocacy Competencies, including a discussion of how the competencies came to be. Then, presenters will explore the application of the Competencies in each of our individual stories, addressing advocacy at a micro-level. This webinar will address struggles to enact the Advocacy Competencies, as reflected in participants' experiences, and propose insights on how the Competencies shift given our current climate. Special attention to addressing the Competencies in context of the Presidential Election will be provided.
