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

ID: 4272WEB

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.
