This Web Conference will introduce attendees to a model of culturally competent practice focusing on the self of the therapist. Avoiding guilt and shame, being able to make effective, empowering heart-to-heart connections with clients, and increasing awareness of one's own non-conscious biases will be the focus of this presentation.
This Web Conference is intermediate instructional level and designed to help clinicians:
1) Discuss the ADDRESSING model and other intersectionality models of identity;
2) Explain the concept of aversive bias as it applies to their practice;
3) Analyze how privilege and disadvantage affect well-being and psychological distress;
4) Apply strategies for integrating diversity into diagnostic formulation and treatment planning.
