Therapy with Latinx Young Professionals: Clinical themes, interventions, and consultation through a social justice lens

Event Date:

October 2, 2020

Event Time:

2:00 pm

Navigating systems of oppression when holding marginalized identities has an undeniable impact on people’s overall health and must be acknowledged when supporting these communities.

In this workshop, we will focus on the challenges Latinx young professionals may face on their journey to and during the therapy process. These may include but not limited to accessibility to culturally responsive therapists and internal conflict regarding when is it okay to ask for help.

The workshop will include reviewing possible presenting themes, clinical interventions, and the importance of clinical consultation which will assist in the development and sustaining of a healthy therapeutic relationship and client’s participation in therapy. This workshop will also highlight how systems and identity play a role in the therapeutic process, which will include a conversation on how the therapist’s investment in their own identity work may impact the therapeutic relationship.
