This 90 min webinar will discuss how to navigate unconscious racism and create a safe environment where clients of color can be seen fully, as they are, without pretense.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Unconscious or unspoken racism compromises clinical discussions and outcomes. Learning to listen for the clues and skillfully bring up race as opportunities to connect meaningfully with your clients of color and provide them with the high quality of care they deserve. Create a safe environment where clients can be seen fully, as they are, without pretense. People of color, traditionally, don't feel welcomed and tend to avoid mainstream clinical resources and consequently are unable to access much needed sometimes critical resources. As a non-topic in therapy, it inhibits and deters authentic communication and inhibits therapeutic connections.
- How unconscious or unspoken racism compromises clinical discussions and outcomes
