What is the therapist’s personal and professional responsibility in recognizing and dissolving racism? What inner work is required to know, own, and confront personal bias? We don’t know what we don’t know. How does your “not knowing” get in your way when working with clients different from you? In this didactic and experiential workshop we will examine the mechanism that maintains racism in the U.S. by reviewing our racialized history, exploring personal and structural privilege and bias, and locating where we each are in identity development using racial identity models. 

Through this exploration, therapists can increase awareness of unconscious bias that contributes to systemic racial dominance and oppression. 

Clinicians both new graduated and seasoned can benefit from this workshop.
