Clinical Responsibility in Racial Equity and Cultural Inclusivity : An Immersive Learning Experience

The Clinical Responsibility in Racial Equity and Cultural Inclusivity series addresses the challenges in cross-race and same-race clinical practice in the age of antiracism. Cultural humility, anti-oppressive practice, and social justice are values central to the profession of social work. In order to enhance human well-being, we must first understand and dismantle personal biases (unconscious and conscious) and systemic injustices within our practice. A focus will be to illustrate the connections between healing racial trauma and somatic awareness work in an effort to demonstrate how embodiment practice and presence supports clinical healing around racialized trauma.

Alison Gerig, LCSW and Laura Hinds, MSW, LCSW of Hindsight Consulting

Hosted virtually by The Center for Professional Development at Bryn Mawr College.

From Pathology to Celebration: Social Work’s Connection to Gender Liberation

Keynote Presentation by Alison Gerig, LCSW

Hosted by the Pennsylvania Society of Clinical Social Workers

Alison and Laura embodied and transmitted an integrity of feeling, vision, and action to which I aspire. The workshop challenged me in ways that were clear, grounded, and connected enough that I could hear what was being said, and it has motivated me to keep applying that insight right at the edge of where I’m most uncomfortable and scared.
