```The equation does not appear to have a solution except as a limit (from
below) but then the solution is either -1 or 1.

eqn = Arg[-(I/((1 + I w)^2 w))] == -Pi;

eqn // Simplify

False

eqn /. {{w -> -1}, {w -> 1}}

{False, False}

Limit[Arg[-(I/((1 + I w)^2 w))],
w -> -1, Direction -> 1] == -Pi

True

Limit[Arg[-(I/((1 + I w)^2 w))],
w -> 1, Direction -> 1] == -Pi

True
