Welcome! I'm glad you'e here.
There seems to be an unwritten rule that every social justice activist’s website must contain quotes from a few key people. For those of you playing Social Justice Bingo along at home, that quote above is from the great Nelson Mandela. And I cannot agree with him more.
Greeetings, social change makers. My name is Mary-Margaret, and seek&summon is my training and consulting practice. It is built on my core belief that humans are here to learn. I think two of the truest sayings are that "you don't know what you don't know" and "when you know better, you do better." As a social worker, I believe wholeheartedly in people's capacity for positive change and growth, and my practice as a social worker has been to walk alongside people in that growth via education and training.
I am most frequently engaged to consult and train on trauma-informed care, self-care for service providers, sexual health education, workplace morale and team building, and the development of organizational training teams and initiatives. My original curricula Sex Education for Social Service Providers and Trauma-Informed Radical Self-Care for Service Providers are my most requested trainings. You can click through to read all about them.
I partner with organizations and the individuals who make them up to ensure our field receives the best education possible, resulting in best practices with our clients and communities. Whether you work with me as a consultant to develop a deeper understanding of your team and your hurdles, or as a facilitator of training to learn more about work with your clients, I meet you as partner in lifelong learning, a fellow traveler on the never-ending journey of continuing education. Pack your bags, friend. We've got work to do.
