“Did you really just say that?” When racist comments are spoken in a psychotherapy session it can throw us off guard, leave us unsure of what to say, and potentially compromise the therapeutic alliance. There is a critical choice to be made in how we respond – one few of us ever learned in grad school. View this session to discover how to handle this often-avoided discussion with specific strategies for responding to clients who make racist statements in therapy. Plus you’ll learn how therapists can repair the therapeutic relationship if they’ve inadvertently committed a microaggression.
