Expressive Arts

Description:

In expressive arts therapy, you will learn multiple senses to explore your inner and outer world through the experience and creation of different art forms. Trainer will guide you through the process. Since the therapeutic work is based on the creative process, not on the final result, it is not necessary to have a background or training in the arts to benefit from expressive arts therapy.

CANS

Description

The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) is a multi-purpose tool developed for children’s services to support decision making, including level of care and service planning, to facilitate quality improvement initiatives, and to allow for the monitoring of outcomes of services.

The CANS was developed from a communication perspective so as to facilitate the linkage between the assessment process and the design of individualized service plans including the application of evidence-based practices. The CANS is easy to learn and is well liked by parents, providers and other partners in the services system because it is easy to understand and does not necessarily require scoring in order to be meaningful to an individual child and family.

Scott Turner Schofield: Transgender 101

DESCRIPTION:

Scott Turner Schofield is an acclaimed diversity educator on transgender issues. He is also the first openly transgender actor to play a major role on daytime television (The Bold and the Beautiful). He is a man who was a woman, a lesbian turned (mostly) straight guy who most people think is a gay man. He takes your labels and shreds them with a wink and a smile.

With extraordinary skill and compassion, in his workshops and presentations Schofield meets every individual exactly where they are on their knowledge of gender, biological sex, and sexuality, and facilitates their own expansion on these topics. He co-creates the conversation with each audience group, blending his expertise as a Trans advocate with the pace of the conversation taking place in the room.

Schofield's brilliance lies in his ability to talk about intersectionality - the way that the topics of biological sex, gender, and sexuality are influenced by factors like race, socioeconomic status, geographical location, disability, etc. As every person experiences gender in their own way, he strives to offer a framework for looking at these topics - not a one-size-fits-all “answer” to a “problem.”

And all along the participants lead the way, always leaving enlightened in their individual ways.

His style is light and entertaining, blending in moments of storytelling and allowing personal questions in order to engage his audience’s emotional intelligence, to seal the “hearts and minds” aspect of advocacy that is so important.

In addition to his lectures and workshops, Schofield is also an award-winning writer and performer. He has toured internationally with his original solo performances "Debutante Balls" and "Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps". He has been honored with many distinctions and awards, among them a "Fruitie" audience choice award for Best Off-Broadway Performance, and a Princess Grace Foundation Acting Fellowship.

His book, Two Truths and a Lie, was a finalist in two categories for the Lambda Literary Award, and made the American Library Association Rainbow List. D

Anthony Ocampo: The Latinos of Asia, How Filipino Americans Break the Rules of Race

DESCRIPTION

 

Anthony Ocampo PhD is a scholar and writer who focuses on issues of immigration, race and ethnicity, and gender and sexuality. He is the author of The Latinos of Asia: How Filipino Americans Break the Rules of Race, recently featured on NPR Morning Edition. His book examines the racial lives of Filipino Americans, who trace their roots to a society in Asia, but also share many cultural characteristics with Latinos. The Latinos of Asia raises the puzzle: Are Filipinos in the United States “becoming” Asian American or Latino? Ocampo draws on the voices of Filipino Americans to demonstrate how demographic shifts in the U.S. are changing the way immigrants and children understand race. His book also provides a foreshadowing of what race relations in America will look like as our society moves further away from the black-white racial paradigm.

Currently, Dr. Ocampo is working on his second book, To Be Brown and Gay in L.A., which chronicles the way gay men of color from immigrant families negotiate race, gender, and sexuality within their families, neighborhoods, schools, and mainstream LGBT spaces. This book builds on his scholarly research on ethnic and sexual minorities, which has been published in some of the leading journals in the field, such as Ethnic and Racial Studies; Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies; Race, Ethnicity, and Education; Latino Studies; and Journal of Asian American Studies.

Dr. Ocampo has also co-edited two major collections in race and ethnic studies: Contemporary Asian America: A Multidisciplinary Reader and Asian American Society: An Encyclopedia. Beyond his scholarly writings, he has also been featured as a commentator for local and national news outlets, including CNN, 60 Minutes, and The San Francisco Chronicle. Dr. Ocampo also has a regular segment “All Things Fil-Am with Dr. O” on Kababayan Today, a daily talk show for and about Filipino Americans.

Dr. Ocampo is a Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Public Policy at UC Riverside and Assistant Professor of Sociology at Cal Poly Pomona. He has served as a dedicated mentor to first-generation students of color through the Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program, and his former advisees have earned admission to prestigious graduate programs at Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, and the University of California. At Cal Poly Pomona, he has been a recipient of the Provost Teacher-Scholar Award and an Outstanding Teaching Award.

A native Los Angeleno, Dr. Ocampo is a graduate of Stanford University (BA ’03, MA ’04) and the University of California, Los Angeles (MA ’06, PhD ’11).

Stacey Patton: The Parent to Prison Pipeline

DESCRIPTION

Research shows that black parents are more than twice as likely as white and Latino parents to use corporal punishment on a regular basis, and they are far less likely to never spank their children. But while hitting children is prevalent in black communities, contrary to popular belief, it is not an intrinsic cultural tradition to which members of the child welfare professionals should capitulate for the sake of demonstrating cultural competency. Black parents have legitimate fears about the safety of their children, and an overwhelming majority believe physical discipline is necessary to keep black children out of the streets, out of prison, or out of cops’ line of vision. Black parents who hit their children not only risk catching the attention of child protective services which are over-concentrated in communities of color, but also having their children placed in foster care, which is a pipeline to the juvenile justice system and other types of traps that disproportionately impact black youth. This workshop is designed to educate professionals, parents, clergy, law enforcement officials and advocates about the rise of mass incarceration and its impact on communities of color and their parenting practices. The audience will explore strategies that parents can protect, care for, and love black children in ways that don’t help facilitate the flow of our young people through racist systems, but supports healthy development and success later in life.

Dr. Stacey Patton is an adoptee, child abuse survivor and former foster youth turned award-winning journalist, author, child advocate and an assistant professor of multimedia journalism at Morgan State University. She is the author of the acclaimed and best-selling book, Spare The Kids: Why Whooping Children Won't Save Black America.

She is also the author of That Mean Old Yesterday - A Memoir and the forthcoming book, Strung Up: The Lynching of Black Children and Teenagers in America, 1880-1968.

Patton's writings on race, politics, pop culture, diversity in media and higher education, and child welfare issues have appeared in the New York Times, Baltimore Sun, Washington Post, Chronicle of Higher Education, Al Jazeera, BBC News, DAME Magazine and TheRoot.com. She has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, CBS, Al Jazeera, The Tavis Smiley Show, Here and Now, and Democracy Now.

She has received reporting awards from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, Scripps Howard Foundation, New York Women in Communications, National (and New York) Association of Black Journalists, The Education Writer's Association, and she is the 2015 recipient of the Vernon Jarrett Medal for Excellence in reporting on American race relations.

Dr. Patton has also received an award from the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children for using journalism to bring awareness to child welfare issues during the Adrian Peterson and "Baltimore Mom" controversies.

In addition to her journalistic work, Dr. Patton is also the creator of Spare the Kids, an online portal designed to encourage parents and caretakers to use alternatives to hitting children. She travels the country delivering keynotes and professional trainings at universities, child welfare and juvenile justice organizations and agenicies.

Being a single caregiver can be challenging. Most single caregivers are faced with managing a busy schedule including job related responsibilities, household duties and raising children, all on their own. The reality is that raising children on your own can be stressful, demanding and hectic. Not properly managing stress can cause caregivers to become less effective in their role of raising children and in life. Not properly managing stress can also impact caregivers’ health and their children’s developing brains. In this workshop caregivers will explore strategies to effectively manage stress, the importance of self-care and its effect on their children.

Learning Objectives:

As an author, Dr. Maté has written several bestselling books including the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction; When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress; and Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder, and co-authored Hold on to Your Kids. His works have been published internationally in twenty languages.

Dr. Maté is the co-founder of Compassion for Addiction, a non-profit that focusses on addiction. He is also an advisor of Drugs over Dinner.

Dr. Maté has received the Hubert Evans Prize for Literary Non-Fiction; an Honorary Degree (Law) from the University of Northern British Columbia; an Outstanding Alumnus Award from Simon Fraser University; and the 2012 Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award from Mothers Against Teen Violence.

Trauma Informed Interventions

DESCRIPTION

Working with system involved youth usually means working with people who experienced developmental trauma early in life. Besides the obvious trust issues that can be seen on the surface, developmental trauma affects brain development in essential ways. Having a general understanding of this physiological differences has a potential to improve treatment outcomes. One way the treatment outcomes can be improved through this knowledge is expanding our toolbox and tailoring interventions based on the needs of the population served. In this training, after gaining a basic understanding of effects of early trauma on brain development and its ongoing effects on functioning, participants will learn new intervention ideas to expand their toolboxes. In addition to didactic training and handouts, participants will be engaging in experiential activities to increase understanding and confidence.

  2. To identify what kind of tailoring in interventions needed for the population served
