Individuals who have been previously incarcerated deserve opportunity, yet they face considerable barriers when attempting to access employment, housing, and social acceptance to care for themselves and their families. Social workers are positioned to help people navigate the reentry process and life beyond. As such, the Elk Place Health Spot at Tulane University School of Social Work has coordinated a panel discussion on reentry to engage social workers in this area so that they can better support their clients, organizations, and policy change. Community members can attend the panel to learn more about the reentry experience and process, including the challenges and barriers faced by individuals who are formerly incarcerated, resources available, mental health, and opportunities for systemic and structural change to better support them and their families. This free, in-person event will take place on Thursday, March 23 from 12 to 2 pm at the School of Social Work building in downtown New Orleans. The event is open to the public, and registration via this form is requested: https://forms.office.com/r/2Fa5VHFz1t.
An application has been made to offer continuing education credit for social workers.
