Shifting Perspectives: Developing a Culturally Syntonic Approach for Working with Black Clients

There has been considerable attention to the impact of racism, structural oppression, and other abuses suffered by Black people. This webinar seeks to advance this conversation from a problem focused one to a healing focused one. It is not within the scope of this presentation to teach a “treatment” approach. Through the lens of culture, the presenter aims to facilitate a shift from our default outlook, to one that illuminates a culturally syntonic view of the black client. We will build a framework from which racially-informed therapeutic ideas, technique, and strategy can evolve. The presenter will also provide a cursory overview of healing approaches that are often overlooked in mainstream literature.

This webinar does not have any offerings for this semester.
