Description

What we say and how we say it is tied to what we feel and believe, consciously or unconsciously. Too often, we are ill-equipped to recognize the harm in our words and actions or to effectively take responsibility for it. This lack of awareness leaves others feeling overlooked and disconnected from their work and relationships due to not feeling valued for who they are. Unfortunately, therapy has not always been a place of refuge from these demeaning interactions. Even with the best intentions, therapists can harm the very clients they intend to help. To help therapists increase their awareness, this workshop will focus on microaggressions and the ways in which they occur in treatment with BIPOC and other clients with marginalized identities. Attendees are invited to assess their own understanding of these relational dynamics and shift their behaviors toward a more affirming practice that avoids retraumatizing their clients. Through didactic instruction and small group processing, this workshop seeks to boost the confidence of therapists in co-creating a therapeutic alliance that their clients enthusiastically participate in.
