Applied Arts and Social Justice: Empowering Voices, Empowering Choices

SW Logo V2.jpg

Description

This webinar is a recording of Dr. Cohen Konrad’s, Dr. Power’s and Ms. Hall’s live presentation at the Maine Society for Social Work Leadership in Health Care’s Annual Ethics Conference held on October 17, 2014, in Waterville, Maine.  The presentation is titled “Applied Arts and Social Justice: Empowering Voices, Empowering Choices”.   Social justice is a core ethical value of social work embedded in all aspects of practice. This presentation highlights the multi-level use of expressive modalities to promote sensitivity to and knowledge of oppression, stigma, and cultural diversity; to raise awareness of the plight of those silenced by trauma and indignity; and as an empowering method for healing. Educators from the University of New England will speak to how applied arts and social justice is being taught to social work and other health professions students as one of many powerful tools for social change and personaltransformation.
