In this 17 minute video, viewers will observe an APS Professional meeting with their supervisor to discuss a recent interview with their client designed to: 1) support APS Professionals who encounter racist and/or discriminatory remarks during the performance of their duties, 2) provide one example to APS Supervisors on how to foster a supportive work environment that enhances diversity, equity, and inclusion, and 3) encourage APS Professionals to create “an appropriate space” where they can explore and process their own personal reactions to client encounters that present objectionable types of behavior. In the video, the R.A.V.E.N framework is introduced to describe an approach that can be useful when responding to microaggressions that occur in public (physical and online) spaces. Video developed by Adult Protective Services Workforce Innovations (APSWI). The R.A.V.E.N. Approach is adapted from Dr. J. Luke Wood, Vice President of Student Affairs and Campus Diversity and Dr. Frank Harris III, professor of postsecondary education and Co-Director of the Community College Equity Assessment Lab (CCEAL) of San Diego State University.
