Webinar - Count on Me
Our society has always been a complex melting pot of individuals. Throughout the years, people have spoken out against all types of injustice. However, many of these individuals come from groups that are disenfranchised due to prejudice and biases in society, both in the macro and micro sense. As therapists, it is our responsibility to use our privilege and power to embolden our clients both in our sessions and in the world.
To complete this task, we must first look within ourselves and confront our own biases. Then, we must actively support our clients to speak up on their own behalf and then fight against prejudices in the outside world.
This webinar will give one inside look regarding the multifaceted experience of oppressed individuals and provide tools to best support them.
• To gain understanding of allyship and its importance to clients
• To learn and confront personal privilege and biases
• To learn how to support clients both inside our sessions and outside in our environment.
