3 CEUs/CPH units

Many of us were raised to avoid conversations that focus on our differences. And we can be uncomfortable with conflict that may arise when we or others are held accountable for the harm we may have caused. As a result, we have developed limited communication skills across our many differences, especially differences in identity (race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, and more), experience, and thought. This lack of skill has contributed to a deterioration in our basic civility and engagement across our differences.

This workshop will explore the societal need for us to become more effective in our communication. We will also build skills to hold ourselves and others accountable for our actions. Dialogue is intended to lead to healing, and there is no healing without accountability.

This workshop meets the Missouri & Illinois social work licensure requirement for 3 hours of continuing education in diversity/cultural competency/humility.
