Understanding Sexual Harassment: The Not-So Hidden Acts of Privilege and Power
Presented by: Julie Roebuck, LCSW
Location: Live-interactive webinar, East Orange, NJ
Sexual harassment is a prevalent and pervasive social epidemic that has a devastating impact on our community. This course will increase participants’ understanding of the dynamics of sexual harassment, the relationship with privilege and power, and its varied faces while increasing awareness about appropriate responses and interventions. The workshop will use dynamic interactive breakout sessions and audiovisual tools to explore the psychological impact, aftermath, and empowerment strategies for survivors of sexual harassment. Participants will explore appropriate responses for survivors as they disclose or report in the media, within social work classrooms, in private practice settings, in agency settings, and within your communities. Countertransference exercises will be utilized to examine the impact of power and control on clinicians.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe the dynamics of sexual harassment
- List appropriate interventions with sexual harassment
- Explain sexual harassment from a multi-cultural and diverse perspective
- Identify ethical considerations while responding to sexual harassment
Course Level: ☐ Beginner ☒ Intermediate ☐ Advanced
