COVID, isolation, and technology provided the perfect storm for the dramatic rise in domestic violence, child abuse, hate crimes, and gun violence. Our society is facing the challenges of estrangement, alienation, and division. This training provides a retrospective examination of how our society has been changed by the pandemic and the emergent social justice issues, both in terms of the detrimental impacts on adults and children as well as the silver linings that have been revealed and reflect our growth, resilience, and flexibility in the time of crisis.
