Do you feel paralyzed when it comes to counselling clients from other ethnicities or backgrounds for fear you’ll say the wrong thing?

If so, it’s understandable. The subjects of race, sexual orientation, religion, and social justice are fraught with anxiety, tension, and silence.

But glossing over these differences or pretending they don’t play a role in clients’ lives does a lot more harm than good.

When you ignore crucial aspects of a client’s life, you’re not seeing them in their full humanity.

And when clients don’t feel seen or heard, they either search out a therapist who does see and hear them... Or they get discouraged and leave therapy altogether.

This is tough stuff, looking inward to discover unconscious biases and doing the work of transforming them. That’s why diversity-in-therapy expert Lambers Fisher, MS, LMFT, MDIV, created this engaging multicultural awareness training.

Register today and take the first step toward multicultural awareness and competency so you can build rapport with clients from different backgrounds and help them make meaningful change in their lives.
