Due to unforeseen circumstances, Ms. Garlock will not be available to conduct this workshop at the convention this Friday.  She will record the program at a later time and we will make it available to all convention attendees.

Systems created in Europe and the United States were founded on white supremacy, and continue to function in its perpetuation. How do we unlearn some of these things and untangle ourselves and our profession from these harmful roots? How do we actively practice our work and work to dismantle our practices at the same time? We cannot therapize our way out of colonization and white supremacy. What can we do?

It is hoped that this roundtable will be an opportunity to have this discussion as Social Work and other Behavioral Health professionals; to reflect on what can be done on a macro/community level to address white supremacy and its legacy in the world, and especially in the Nation of Hawai’i.

Learning Objectives:
● To reflect upon and describe two ways in which our individual and collective complicity in systems that uphold white supremacy
● To formulate responses to individual and collective responsibility for dismantling systems that uphold white supremacy
● To generate ideas about ways we can work as individuals and collectively to integrate anti-racist practices into our work
