We’ll also take a deep dive into how to build your resilience on an individual, interpersonal, organizational, community, and societal front. You’ll leave with new tools on how to respond to harassment, whether your response is in the moment while that harassment is happening or long-term.

Suicide: Effective Crisis Response And Treatments (Day 1)

Hosted By: IVAT

Date: 11/4/2021
 
Time: 2:00 AM
 
Description: Suicide is the most common psychological emergency that therapists will encounter, and it is on the rise. For mental health professionals with an active clinical practice, suicide is an occupational hazard that can be both emotionally and practically devastating. Recent research has identified suicide-specific therapies that are effective in treating both suicidal ideation and behavior. Most therapists are not aware of them nor have they been trained in them, so most suicidal clients do not receive these potentially lifesaving treatments. This online course with suicidologist Dr. Lisa Firestone will provide an invaluable opportunity for therapists to become familiar with these empirically validated, evidence-based treatments for suicide that are fast becoming the standard of care.

Hosted By: iHollaback

Date: 11/6/2021
 
Time: 4:00 AM
 
Description: If you’ve already taken our Bystander Intervention training and you’re looking to go deeper into how to directly intervene and de-escalate conflict: this training is for you. Conflict de-escalation requires patience, a willingness to listen, and an ability to see the humanity in everyone, even those we don’t agree with or who seek to hurt us. Using Hollaback!’s Observe-Breathe-Connect methodology, we’ll learn how to identify potential conflict before it escalates using our “pyramid of escalation” and how to assess whether intervening is the right action for you. We’ll talk about specific biases that are increasing conflict, harassment, and violence during COVID19 — and the role of implicit and explicit bias in conflict. We’ll also learn how to connect with others by validating and de-escalating their feelings — even if we don’t understand them or agree with them.  We’ll have time at the end to practice using real-life scenarios.

Description: Domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, teen dating and sex trafficking are not traditional issues or values, but we will face them with indigenous solutions. Growing up in boarding schools changed the natural flow of parenting and the bond between mother and child forever. What it means to be an indigenous mother when you haven’t had one due to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, sex trafficking or other major crimes and the correlation to boarding school and the past. Our traditional parenting styles have been damaged by society and the social norms of the past. In this webinar we will discuss the importance of returning to the basics for all mothers, grandmothers, aunties, foster moms and teen moms and precautions for our future mothers. How did are ancestors tracked their moon cycles, how these traditional methods can be utilized to help our advocates better serve survivors and victims.

Hosted By: iHollaback

Time: 11:00 AM
 
Description: This session offers translations and simultaneous interpretation in Thai!  The one-hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that Asian and Asian American folks are facing right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool we call the “spectrum of disrespect.” You’ll learn what to look for and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities. We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see Anti-Asian/American harassment online or in person.

BYSTANDER INTERVENTION 2.0: CONFLICT DE-ESCALATION TRAINING WORKSHOP

Topic: BYSTANDER INTERVENTION 2.0: CONFLICT DE-ESCALATION TRAINING WORKSHOP

Hosted By: iHollaback

Date: 11/30/2021
 
Time: 7:00 AM
 
Description: If you’ve already taken our Bystander Intervention training and you’re looking to go deeper into how to directly intervene and de-escalate conflict: this training is for you. Conflict de-escalation requires patience, a willingness to listen, and an ability to see the humanity in everyone, even those we don’t agree with or who seek to hurt us. Using Hollaback!’s Observe-Breathe-Connect methodology, we’ll learn how to identify potential conflict before it escalates using our “pyramid of escalation” and how to assess whether intervening is the right action for you. We’ll talk about specific biases that are increasing conflict, harassment, and violence during COVID19 — and the role of implicit and explicit bias in conflict. We’ll also learn how to connect with others by validating and de-escalating their feelings — even if we don’t understand them or agree with them.  We’ll have time at the end to practice using real-life scenarios.
