Event description
This webinar explores how therapists can respond to the challenge of addressing race and racism in therapy with Black clients

About this Event

The effects of race and racism often go unacknowledged by therapists, and many Black clients leave therapy feeling unaffirmed, invalidated, or worse, subjected to various forms of racism and microaggressions within the therapeutic relationship itself. In this webinar, culturally adapted cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is explored as a means to enhance counseling relationships and aid clinical decision-making with Black clients, as Drs. Steele and Newton discuss the psychological impacts of racism within the Black community and describe theoretically-based strategies to broach, conceptualize, and address race and racism in therapy with this population.

During this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Broach race and racism in therapy with Black clients and build culturally responsive therapeutic relationships
  • Conceptualize the role of race and racism in mental health challenges experienced by Black clients
  • Develop theoretically-based, culturally sensitive treatment plans for Black clients
  • Define key terms relevant to the psychology of race and racism
