Human service professionals frequently work with patients and clients from under-represented minority groups or marginalized populations where concerns about justice, inclusion, and equity are common. This workshop will explore a Biblical definition and perspective on social justice and its application to current culture and practice. James Long holds a Doctorate in Theology as well as a Masters in Social Work and is a Board Certified Professional Counselor and Certified school social worker in New Jersey. He will share his perspectives as a Christian, a clinician, a Black American, and a theologian who holds to Biblical inerrancy and the Biblical worldview.
The goal of this presentation is to continue the dialogue with theologically conservative Christians and those who feel called to pursue social justice causes in the health and human service professions. The tension between Scripture and worldly narratives and ideologies will be explored to help attendees arrive at an understanding that honors both the Christian’s religious viewpoints and ethical professional practice.
