Important CEU Information (Updated 10/13/20)

Live-Webinars: Defined as “synchronous” events on specific days where you may interact with the presenter in real time.

The Georgia Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers and Marriage & Family Therapists:

The Georgia Composite Board has approved all Live Webinars to be counted the same as Live (including Ethics!!!) from here forward. Therefore, masters level licensed therapists will not have to attend a live workshop ever again.

The Georgia Board of Psychologists:

Has approved Live Webinars and On-Demand Webinars to be counted the same as live workshops for the remainder of this renewal period (including Ethics!!!). We are still awaiting The Board’s decision regarding the next renewal cycle.

Educational Objectives:

  • Describe characteristics of an anti-racist therapist and therapy practice
  • Evaluate the extent of own racially equitable action on individual, organizational, and systemic levels
  • Identify two validated assessment measures of race-based trauma
  • Describe peer-reviewed models and strategies to treat race-based stress and trauma and foster resilience
  • Explain ethical and clinical considerations for addressing racist and prejudiced comments made by clients in therapy
  • List three steps to addressing client racism in therapy

Workshop Description:

In the anti-racist therapy room, the clinician actively promotes racial equity in all endeavors. Actions include examination and transformation of self and systems, assessment and treatment of race-based stress and trauma, and attending to racist comments by clients. Dr. Davis will utilize didactics, case examples, and experiential exercises to achieve these aims. This workshop will focus on anti-racist intervention specific to anti-Blackness relevant to many African American clients. Though content may be generalizable to anti-racist intervention for any marginalized racial group, Dr. Davis recommends a specific focus and will highlight relevant resources for other Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
