  • Summarize ethical and clinical considerations for addressing racism within clinical practice

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.

What people are saying about this workshop:

  • "Her authenticity and knowledge are commendable. This was the best ethics course I've taken as a professional." - KQ
  • "The workshop was phenomenal. Dr. Telsie is amazing and I would take more of her CEUs. I was thoroughly enthralled throughout the entire presentation." - JMW
  • "I seriously hope this program was SOLD OUT because every singly clinician should experience it. The mindfulness pauses were beautiful and her integration of voices of BIPOC was so profound. Such richness and depth. I'm choked up just writing this evaluation! I so appreciated how beautifully she wove together the theoretical and practical." - SD, LPC
  • "Telsie Davis is incredible! I love her warm and empathic presentation style, addressing what can be a difficult topic in an approachable way. As a white woman, I believe this workshop should be required for all white therapists. No matter how much work we've done, we can always learn more and do better. Particularly if a white therapist works with BIPOC clients, I think it would be tough to practice ethically without reflecting on the information in this workshop." - SS, LPC
  • "Dr. Davis is brilliant in delivering such an amazing subject matter that often times get lost in translation. Dr. Telsie is amazing." - TA, LMFT
  • "The presenter was fantastic, extremely engaging, very knowledgeable and I have no comments for improvement!" - JP, LPC
  • "I appreciated the inclusive approach - other workshops I have attended on antiracism have been blaming, shaming, inflammatory, and polarizing. This approach encouraged me to reflect without defensiveness. I also gained practical advice on specific things to address and add to my practice. I gained practical tips on how to examine my own beliefs and approaches, and how to demonstrate to clients that I am inclusive and working on my biases." - HD, LPC
