Utilizing an Anti-racist Lens as Psychotherapists (2-Part Workshop)

Event Date:

March 5, 2022

Event Time:

10:00 am

Participants can expect to engage in an interactive training focused on assessing for racial trauma, understanding our role as clinicians in conceptualizing the emotional and physical impact of racism as well as acquiring the skill set to recognize, address, and support client’s experience of micro-aggressions. 

Part 1 addresses the impact of white supremacy culture on psychology, the effects of whiteness within the wellness space on black communities, and the ways in which racism impacts Black people physiologically and physically. The training is interactive and asks participants to actively engage in conversations around white supremacy and its impact on us as individuals.

Part 2 explores the meaning of diversity, equity, and inclusion within mental health spaces. This training addresses intersectional invisibility and provides participants with skills for allyship within the therapeutic relationship. Participants will be challenged to address implicit biases and practice skills through case conceptualizations.

You may register for one or both parts of the workshop.
