This Zoom salon will discuss the article ‘Vernacular ethics and clinical activism in Palestine: Lessons for social work in the U.S.’ It will ask what clinical social workers in the US can learn from Palestinian social workers about providing care for people who are stigmatized by mainstream culture. It will consider how we might advance our understanding and support for Palestinian social workers whose ethics of care responds, by necessity, to their politicized experience.
