    The Children’s Issues Committee’s goal is to identify the broader causes of social problems within the local and state community, and to actively work toward the elimination of these causes of dysfunction through advocating change of the social service system itself. Furthermore, we work collaboratively with other child advocacy groups to address issues, as well as work with the SLAC committee to improve social institutions, systems, legislation, and practice that impose hardship on children and families. New members are always welcome!

    The Committee on Aging is engaged in linking social workers that are interested in issues pertinent to our aging population. The committee meets on a monthly basis to address the improvement of social work practice with this population, as well as to advocate for pertinent legislation, and to promote aging issues, programs, and technologies. In our efforts we coordinate with existing coalitions on aging and local groups of like interest.

    DESCRIPTION

    The Diversity Awareness Committee is pleased to offer a three part seminar series on issues facing the transgender community.

    Seminar III

    Growing Up Transgender

    Coming out and transitioning are long, multi-dimensional processes that can have great impact on long term outcomes for people who are transgender. Sharing personal narratives is a tool for education and personal reflection. Discussion will center around personal narratives related to: coming out, barriers to care, support systems, and general transition related topics.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Identify potential risk and protective factors that impact the lives of people who are transgender at various stages of transition.
    2. Recognize the role social workers could play in connecting people who are transgender to appropriate, culturally sensitive resources.
    3. Identify barriers to people who are transgender accessing services offered by social workers and others in various settings (mental and physical healthcare, education, social services, et cetera).
    4. Discuss the potential challenges for the families of the individual transitioning.

    Presenter

    Shaun Connors, BSW, is a queer transguy who has a soft spot for space, is fueled by black coffee, and seeks to make the world a better place by using social work practices and principles to educate in various settings. His experiences as an educator include teaching safer sex to LGBTQ+ folks, teenagers, and college students, educating about LGBTQ+ issues and allyship, and facilitating LGBTQ+ and transgender-specific panels in various settings.

    This program has been approved for one (1) Category I Continuing Education hours for licensure. NASW NH Authorization #3349.

    Over 2 million Americans have served in the last 15 years of the Global War on Terrorism.  Many are returning home and looking for the anonymity of community mental health centers and private practices for mental health care.  They live and work among us and their children attend our public schools.  Many will not identify themselves as returning veterans (or loved ones of returning veterans) unless asked directly.

     

    This workshop will prepare the non-military helping professional for culturally-informed relationships with this unique population.  The focus will be on the values, beliefs and attitudes towards seeking help as well as the unique language used in different military branches.  Returning veterans often complain about having to spend their first session explaining military culture to civilian professionals.  Clinical implications of working with a military member will be explored through case vignettes.   Cultural sensitivity will inform the practice approaches of workshop participants.
