Description

Standing Up for Racial Justice--An ACT-Based Approach to Addressing Racial Justice in Your Clinical Practice

November 5th, 2016, 1:30-4:30 PM

This powerful workshop will utilize core concepts of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to assist compassionate, culturally responsive and socially aware therapists to address issues like racism and other social injustice that may be impacting the lives of their clients.

Racism and other social injustices are systemic issues that are detrimental to the mental health of poeple who are oppressed, and also has serious mental health consequences for people who are privileged. It robs us all of our common humanity, and studies show that it contributes to a host of mental health issues.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a powerful technique that can help clients defuse from the grips of their internal issues, act in line with their values, all while creating deeper and more meaningful connections and lives.

Using ACT, this powerful workshop will help clinicians identify their own implicit biases, their beliefs about change in the therpeutic process, and change in the world. Clinicians will learn how to help their clients manage their feelings around social injustice and oppression and to assist them in utilizing their values to create real change in their lives.

This workshop will provide education on current social justice issues, primarily racism, and the current impact on the African American community. It will educate clinicians on multiculturally appropriate and culturally responsive practices in order to support their clients who may be impacted by various types of oppressions.
