The ingrained impacts of systemic racism affect every sector and institution of our society, pushing many to the margins by means out of their control.
And our therapeutic spaces are not untouched.
Despite our best intentions, many of us are unwittingly committing microaggressions, damaging rapport, and perpetuating inequalities. Without acknowledging power differentials and uprooting our biases we can fail marginalized clients and unknowingly participate in the oppression.
No matter your racial, ethnic or cultural background, this candid one-day training will equip you to enhance your treatment with minoritized clients and inspire you to begin using your practice as a source of systemic change!
And unlike other trainings that offer overly simplified and formulaic guidance on how to do therapy with “them,” this program will visit the uncomfortable places we need to go to become better clinicians for all of our clients.
Watch Dr. Meag-gan O’Reilly, Stanford Psychologist and CEO & Co-Founder of Inherent Value Psychology Inc., for an eye-opening exploration of how using a framework of equity, inclusion, and liberation can transform you and your clinical care.
PLUS she’ll share the key concepts, mindsets and clinical examples you need to more effectively work with the intersectionality in each client and give you actionable steps you can take to help dismantle oppressive systems and effect change at a societal level.
This is one training you can’t afford to miss.
This online program is worth 6.25 hours CPD.
