Anti-Racism to Liberation Psychology: A Deeper Exploration

Sunday, April 11,  1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

PRESENTER: Thema Bryant-Davis, PhD

This course is a follow up to our most popular workshop with Dr. Thema Bryant-Davis, “Anti-Racism Therapy: Moving Beyond Cultural Competence”.

This workshop will explore the key principles of cultural humility, anti-racism, and social justice oriented psychotherapy. Attendees will receive insights into the key principles of liberation psychology, decolonizing psychology, and multicultural feminist therapy, with special attention given to intersectionality and anti-Black racism. This presentation will provide significant considerations for case conceptualization and intervention strategies. Therapists will finally learn how to recognize and address racial battle fatigue within themselves and their clients.

This 90-minute training is for beginner and advanced clinicians, as most training programs have not offered training in anti-racism therapeutic practice.

1.5 CE Credits will be available for PURCHASE at checkout.
