Civic Engagement as a Social Work Intervention: Where Macro Meets Micro
This Community Conversation is being presented free for social workers, their clients, and the general public. It is not CEU eligible.
Did you know research shows civic engagement to be a social determinant of health?
Moreover, social workers are urged by the NASW’s Code of Ethics to engage in social and political action to ensure better social conditions that provide equity and justice to the people served. A simple way to do this is to register people to vote. We've partnered with Vot-ER to help prepare social work clinicians to incorporate voter registration efforts in their work with clients. This webinar will explore the evidence supporting civic engagement as a social determinant of health; prepare social workers for the critical role they play in improving the health outcomes of patients and clients through civic engagement; and provide tools that can be easily integrated into all practice settings to empower your clients to vote. Vot-ER (http://vot-er.org/) integrates voter registration into the healthcare delivery system and was founded on a core belief that empowered voices and full participation in the democratic process lead to positive health outcomes.
