The Race Against Racism: Strategies to Combat Racism, Address Microaggressions, and Promote Healing in the Therapeutic Setting

As the U.S. population becomes increasingly multicultural and telehealth extends services into remote areas, there is an urgent need for therapists to become adept at the delivery of culturally appropriate care. In this 2-hour course, the presenter offers insight for therapists not only to self-reflect on their own biases but also explores evidence-based strategies to overcome everyday barriers promoted by acts of racial microaggression. This course is included with the Ethical Foundations Webinar Package.
