We are very pleased to offer our first Anti-Discrimination Response Training (ART) event in honor of Human Rights Month. ART uses a witness-centered approach to prejudice reduction and anti-discrimination education and an experiential learning format in a group context. ART developed by Dr. Ishu Ishiyama of the University of British Columbia is based on Dr. Ishiyama’s active witnessing model. It incorporates social learning theory, social skills training, socio-cultural competency expansion models, group-based experiential learning models, and moral development theory.
This initial training will be provided free of charge for all attendees. The subsequent certification course will be provided and attendees will be able to become certified ART trainers. This event is free and open to all prevention and advocacy staff but a strict cap of 30 attendees is enforced to ensure quality and management of the training.
Irene Ota, University of Utah College of Social Work instructor and diversity coordinator, has offered to lead a group through this outstanding training.
