This course will provide relevant information for mental health professionals who are interested in expanding their awareness of what social justice and advocacy looks like. Frameworks of advocacy within intrapersonal, interpersonal, and systemic/institutional settings will be explored. Attendees will review pertinent ethical codes and mandates and discuss current ethical imperatives for increased knowledge and understanding in relation to social justice, advocacy, and working as accomplices when combating inequities that marginalized communities face.
Local Idaho community organizers Tai Simpson and Nisha Newton will join for the later half of the training, bringing firsthand lived experience and immense knowledge into the training so that attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to work in solidarity with marginalized communities as well as what they can do currently to support local Idaho movements.
A portion of the proceeds from this training will be donated directly to Idaho marginalized community members, local community organizers and local Idaho movements, like the Idaho COVID Mutual Aid Fund (www.addthewords.org/idaho-covid-mutual-aid-fund).
