Workshop Description:

In the antiracist 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 antiracist intervention specific to anti-Blackness relevant to many African American clients. Though content may be generalizable to antiracist 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.
