Workshop Title: Exploring Cultural Responsiveness at a Time of Social Unrest
Workshop Description: 2020 has been a year of intense racial and social trauma for BIPOC individuals, be they, therapists or clients. This has required us to improve our ability to provide culturally responsive engagement around these issues. This webinar is designed for those seeking a better understanding of cultural responsiveness and its practical implications for engagement when working with racialized and historical trauma. Though this webinar will focus on race, the principles may be applied to other marginalized groups and intersectionalities.
The objective of this webinar is to provide an understanding of a more defined concept or idea of cultural responsiveness. We will explore the differences between cultural responsiveness and the concept of cultural competence, as well as how therapists and supervisors can work towards minimizing harm when working with clients and students of diverse backgrounds and to provide feedback to questions clinicians may have regarding cultural responsiveness.
