PDS2122: Racial Awareness in the Therapy Room
March 12, 2020, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$90
Race is an important identity for many individuals, particularly people of color, though it is often not discussed explicitly in the therapy room. Those individuals who identify as white may not prioritize race as one of their identities or have a comfort level discussing how their race may impact the therapeutic relationship. A client’s perception of the clinician’s racial awareness can impact engagement in treatment. The seminar will explore cultural competence, cultural humility, microaggressions and implicit bias and its relevance in practicing ethically. Strategies for conceptualizing and discussing race and the intersectionality of identities will be explored.
