Ask the Expert Session:Post-Traumatic Masculinity: Toxic Virility and Courageous Vulnerability

This Ask the Expert Session is presented by Bill Burmester. This conversation addresses the gendered experience of male survivors of trauma by drawing upon clinical experience with male survivors of sexual abuse. We will consider them not only as victims but as boys and men whose trauma primes them to reconnect with their own, typically-abandoned vulnerability and therefore with their inherent capacity for empathy. Embracing vulnerability, not as weakness but as an act of emotional courage, increases men’s chances for success and fulfillment in important relationships and improves their overall health and well-being.

Traumatic Grief and At-Risk Youth

When the sudden and traumatic death of a significant caregiver or close family member occurs, the youth is often left without the support and tools that they need to help them start their mourning process. Children and youth who have experienced the death of a caregiver or close family member often need to acknowledge and begin to understand all the feelings associated with the death particularly if the death is stigmatized or a crime was involved. In this workshop you will examine the multiple factors that impact a youth’s grief and how their community of caregivers (foster parents, social worker/therapist, teachers and relatives) can assist in the grieving process through the Four Tasks of Mourning as described by JW Worden, PhD.

Salinas, CA
Culturally Inclusive Service Delivery for Victims of Color

Presented by Taquelia Washington, LCSW

In striving to provide culturally inclusive services, it is crucial that helping professionals be willing to examine the cultural lenses through which they view the world. While this is important no matter the race/ethnicity of the person being served, it is particularly important when working with people of color due to the nuances of cultural trauma that this population experiences on a daily basis. Utilizing a transformational learning lens, the goal of this workshop is to provide participants with an experiential and safe environment in which to develop the foundation needed to provide culturally inclusive services. This will be done through introducing participants to a model designed to visually expand the way that one views themselves, others, and the systems in which they work. Multiple modalities will be used to teach this workshop including lecture, experiential exercises, and small group work.
