Educational Objectives:

  • Define racism, antiracism, and other antiracist terminology
  • Describe characteristics of an antiracist clinician and practice
  • Identify ethical principles, standards, values, and/or codes relevant to antiracist practice
  • Evaluate extent of own racially equitable action on individual, organizational, and systemic levels
  • Summarize ethical and clinical considerations for addressing racism within clinical practice
  • List three steps to addressing racist comments made by clients in the context of therapy

Workshop Description:

Clinicians are committed to healing the clients in our care and to do so ethically. However, our commitment to healing often falls short of ethical care and has not been enough to eliminate mental health treatment disparities endured by clients who are BIPOC. To truly heal and be ethical, we must be antiracist. Dr. Davis will utilize didactics, self-assessments, clinical vignettes, and experiential exercises to help clinicians construct an antiracist lens to identify and dismantle racist actions by self and systems and create an ethical antiracist practice.

Presented by: Telsie Davis, Ph.D.
