 Critical Race Theory:  Studies in Education

This workshop introduces Critical Race Theory (CRT) and explores CRT as an analytical framework that provides race-based epistemological, methodological, and pedagogical approaches to the studies of education.  The key focuses for this workshop are to help students understand CRT as a theoretical framework, examine its strengths and limitations for addressing educational inequalities, and consider its application to students' own research and practice.  We will work to discuss the ideological construction of race and education in the U.S.  As such, we will also work through the oppression in education and boldly confront notions of colorblindness. Throughout this workshop, we will deal with the challenges surrounding the inclusion of multiple voices and perspectives in the complex intersections among race, gender, class, and sexual orientation. 

Students will reflect upon their own personal, political, and professional development and growth and understand how their personal ‘counter-story’ influences their educational paradigm. Required Textbook:  None

Understanding Power and Control in Interpersonal Relationships: A Course for Educators, Counselors and Social Workers

This fully online workshop has been developed for helping professionals to enhance their ability to recognize power inequalities and the effects of coercion and force in the context of a trust-based relationship. Battering relationships, domestic violence, and child abuse are all situations where one person wields power over the other person in order to control and dominate. Recognizing coercive control can be difficult—less than ten percent of domestic violence is reported to the police or to medical personnel. Few individuals self-identify as “battered” for many reasons, including the physiological and psychological effects of trauma. The effects of trauma and dissociated coercion will be explored in this workshop course, as well as models of collaborative and balanced power in interpersonal relationships. Participants will be provided with information designed to enable them to develop individualized screening and assessment plans. Required Textbook:  None
