Educational Objectives:

In this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Define racism, antiracism, and racial equity
  • 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.

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
  • "This one of the best workshops I ever attended. Her delivery was masterful." - MG, Psychologist
  • "Dr. Davis was incredibly authentic and welcoming, calling me in to exploring racism and antiracist practice. I learned a lot!" - KB, Psychologist
  • "The presenter was very knowledgeable and used various means to maintain the audience's attention. The way the presenter explained the material was easily digestible." - RT, LCSW
  • "What an impactful thought-provoking workshop. Filled with a plethora of takeaways that can be implemented to reduce racial bias with clients." - KL, LMFT
  • "The presenter was excellent - thorough and extremely well prepared. It helped me to see things that I had not seen before and increased my desire to keep looking for more what I cannot see. Well done!" - CBP, LPC
  • "Four therapists took the workshop together. We remarked repeatedly that the presenter was excellent. Her grasp and presentation of the material was one of the best we have seen. (and we have seen a bunch.) Her ability to maintain her energy and enthusiasm over the long day, and demanding topic was admirable. Thanks so much." - KJC, LPC
  • "So wise and humble. Would definitely take another training by Telsie! I feel so much more sharpened by this training as I continue to serve and advocate for minority populations." - AJ, LPC
  • "Presentation was informative, interesting and presented the topics and information in a safe way. I appreciate so much Telsie's willingness to share her own experiences of instances in which, in retrospect, her behavior may be seen as racist or insensitive." - MR, Psychologist
  • "It was a great balance of promoting emotional involvement and presenting facts, research and practical applications!" - JC, LPC
  • "The presenter and the workshop were excellent. I particularly enjoyed the videos. Thank you to Dr. Davis and to the Knowledge Tree for an excellent day of learning." - CC, Psychologist
  • "She was fantastic: articulate, real/human, a great teacher, thorough. Thank you." - APD
  • "Presenter was kind, diplomatic and clear. ...This was excellent." - GK, Psychologist"I had so many take aways: setting the intention to learn so I do not unintentionally do harm (hair care to MENA), solidify that there's no getting around bias and I am here to learn, ethical model for making decisions in clinical work for anti-racism, commitment to work with my nervous system, 3 steps to be with my bias, ways to be anti-racist in my paperwork and website, etc... Real, generous, important, grounded, organized, depth. I'm grateful. Thank you again for your courageous and generous presence and work! I am moved and my commitment to anti-racism and anti-oppression is deepened." - JF
