Title: Outside the Box of Limiting Beliefs: New Tools for Change

Presented by: Tracy Durkin, LCSW

5 DVS Credits: Mental Health

As professionals, we are trained to understand how certain beliefs are at the root of family violence and oppression. We are trained to be aware of intersectionality, of how beliefs and power structures related to age, gender, culture, class, race, and standards for physicality affect every aspect of the cases we work with. We seek, through support and education, to help our clients expand their beliefs to include empowerment and possibilities for themselves and their children. Awareness and understanding of collective belief systems is vital to our work, thus our commitment to ongoing diversity training and education.  This workshop will turn the focus away from the collective and more toward the inner, the private, the belief system of the individual.

Beliefs are powerful energetic structures that organize our thinking and behavior in ways that, for most of us, are not conscious. Beliefs are merely ideas, mental constructs; they are invisible and intangible, yet they exert tremendous control over our personal and interpersonal choices.  Core beliefs are usually fixed within us from a very young age, and they tend to create patterns, causing us to behave similarly from situation to situation, relationship to relationship, job to job, etc. When beliefs are positive, they create patterns that are healthy and life-affirming. When internal beliefs are negative, they create destructive and damaging patterns.

With a light-hearted and compassionate approach, you will learn to identify how false beliefs within a person (about themselves and about the world) are interfering with their life’s potential. By observing patterns in an interested, curious and accepting way, in order identify which beliefs are “driving the bus.”  You will learn a non-judgmental language to describe and interpret what you see.

You will acquire a few fundamental skills that might change the way you define problems and formulate solutions and might give you practical insights to share with your clients.

This is a fun, interactive, fast-moving workshop where you will have “Aha Moments” right away!

You will apply a new understanding to yourself, and by the end of the day, you will feel clear and confident about how to create change for yourself and others!

About the Keynote

Advocacy is more important than ever to build power and protect our communities. It enables us to shape the public debate on important social issues and is one of the most powerful tools we have to create change. As part of the Alliance for Justice Bolder Advocacy team, I provide foundations and nonprofits the confidence, tools, and resources to effectively advocate to advance their missions. During this time of great political change, many nonprofits that have hesitated to step into the advocacy realm now feel compelled to speak out, and those already engaging in advocacy want to learn how they can engage in more sophisticated strategies and campaigns. The time is now for your organization to BE BOLD and to encourage your allies and coalitions to speak up and out on issues that matter to them and to you.

Keely Monroe serves as Counsel for the Bolder Advocacy Initiative at Alliance for Justice. She consults with and trains nonprofit organizations on the rules and strategies for legal and effective advocacy, including lobbying, election-related activity, and ballot measure advocacy. Before joining AFJ, Keely was the Director of Campus & Community Programs at the national office of IfWhenHow: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice in Oakland, CA, where she provided guidance to over one hundred IfWhenHow chapters across the country and supported their advocacy at the state and community level. As a passionate advocate for reproductive rights, health, and justice issues, Keely further serves these movements as a member of the National Board of Directors for Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) and as an advisory board member for Women Engaged. Keely holds a B.A. from Fordham University and graduated from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 2011. She is licensed by the State Bar of California.

Macheis Wind is an award-winning musician, child advocate and author, and the founder and director of Guitar Tree, a non-profit organization. He has spent more than two decades dedicated to bringing the healing power of music to children and adults in venues where trauma and emotional pain are intense and ever present – what he calls the \“hidden worlds\”. Macheis has developed many creative approaches to enhancing healing and empowerment in these volatile and complex settings. Often, he will create songs out of client’s lives and stories that are beautiful, thought provoking and speak to the compassion in all of us.
