Program description: Since racism and cultural bias affect all of us, individual practitioners must constantly re-evaluate their own attitudes, biases and personal experiences with people of different races and ethnic groups, gender, social class, religious and spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, age, and mental and physical ability. Dr. Bailey’s presentation will explore the role that cultural humility, intersectionality, and minority stress theory can have on the therapeutic relationship. He will also discuss utilizing a social justice framework in the therapeutic relationship and will examine the how mental health professionals can play an important part in promoting equity, equality and fairness in their practice; as well as the role that they must play in addressing racism, and other forms of oppression in the clinical environment.
*Between the World and Us is borrowed from the title of Ta-Nehisi Coates award winning book – Between the World and Me.
