Identity, Privilege, and Oppression in the Therapeutic Relationship

A virtual workshop with 3 cultural humility CEUs.

Friday, May 26, 2023 , 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Workshop Description:

One way to challenge and dismantle systematic oppression is to start with knowing, befriending, and ultimately challenging ourselves.  If we can do this within ourselves, we can begin the harder task of doing this with others, including the people we work with (our clients).  Workshop participants are invited to challenge themselves, think with an open mind, and engage in brave internal and external dialogue.

Participants will:

  • Reflect on their own identity, privilege, and oppression
  • Understand how identifying as a trauma survivor can lead to additional marginalization in society
  • Explore how these dynamics impact what happens in the therapeutic  (or other helper) relationship
  • Discuss how to talk to clients about race and its impacts on the therapeutic relationship through individual reflection and small group discussion
