Anti-Racism Therapy: Moving Beyond Cultural Competence

Friday July 24,  12:00 PM – 1:30 PM

ONLINE WORKSHOP – Login info provided at registration

PRESENTER: Thema Bryant-Davis, PhD

This training reviews the constructs of cultural competence and cultural humility and extends to an understanding of anti-racism, decolonization, and liberation psychology. With attention to intersectionality, attendees discover ways that an anti-racist lens shapes assessment, intervention, and the personal, professional, and public lives of mental health professionals.

This 90-minute training is for beginner and advanced clinicians, as most training programs have not offered training in anti-racism therapeutic practice. The training will encompass both theory and practical application of anti-racism therapy.

The training also touches on sustainability, self-care, and community-care as the work of anti-racism is a lifelong commitment.
