Class 1: 10:00AM - 1:00PM EST
Sexual Violence is often narrowly examined as an issue solely centering gender and violence. For BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) survivors, sexual violence has historically served as a tool to facilitate racism and other forms of oppression. This training will examine the intersection of sexual violence & racism. Participants will be provided with the critical tools for implementing anti-racism sexual violence intervention and prevention services specific to the needs of communities of color.

Class 2: 1:45 PM - 4:45 PM EST
When clients are not interested in working with a mental health professional, it can be hard to create a therapeutic relationship with them. This training is designed to help experienced practitioners build on their current approach to working with clients who are difficult to engage. Attendees will learn new ways of applying supportive techniques to improve outcomes with this population.
During this class, the definition and basic principles of Motivational Interviewing will be reviewed. Strengths Based Theory will be applied to creating a therapeutic alliance with mandated or ambivalent clients. Motivational challenges on the individual and systemic levels will be identified and explored for how they impact treatment. The training will incorporate group practice exercises to allow participants to combine their new knowledge with what they already practice. A segment on coaching supervisees and non-clinical staff will be included.
(Trainer: Lissa Ramsepaul, LICSW, LCSW-C, is a licensed clinical social worker in MD and DC. She currently works as a nonprofit management consultant after years of working in the homeless services and mental health sectors in DC. She has a passion for working with clients that are mandated, ambivalent about services, and report a history of bad experiences with mental health services in the past.)
