The grief journey of our clients is impacted by race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, age, economics, inequalities and power differentials.
But without understanding the dynamics of our clients experiences we can find ourselves unprepared to work with diverse clients and fail to offer support that is ethical, relevant, and culturally sensitive to their needs.
This thought provoking and honest presentation will offer a new lens through which to view your grief work with diverse and underserved populations and give you a socially just framework you can use to reach across divides and make healing connections with clients of all backgrounds!
This online program is worth 1 hours CPD.
