About the Event:

Today's political climate does not make it easy for folks, particularly marginalized communities. As Licensed Clinicians, we have the ability to provide a service while supporting social justice, but first we must start with ourselves. Through this workshop, participants will leave with a greater understanding and ease around the following objectives:

1. Connecting current news to trauma and race
2. Understanding culturally relevant terms
3. Start examining personal biases in a safe way
4. Understanding how biases can translate into the therapy room
5. Being a change agent
6. Accessing Resources for continued learning

Earn 1.5 Contact Hours for attending this event.
