About the Event
This workshop is eligible for 6 ethics or cultural hours (yuour choice) of continuing education credit through the NM Counseling and Therapy Practice Board and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Racial trauma and oppression are barriers to BIPOC clients in both accessing and engaging in therapeutic services. As clinicians, we can also be a barrier; a lack of understanding of racial trauma, as well as our own prejudiced behaviors or mindset, can retraumatize clients. Participants will learn about racial trauma, including symptoms BIPOC individuals may experience. We will explore trauma informed principles through a culturally specific lens, the complex racial trauma (CoRT) framework, and ethnocultural transference and countertransference. Through self reflection and group discussion, we will acknowledge and identify ways we can bring anti-racism to our clinical practice.
Topics covered during this workshop include:
-Defining racial trauma and symptoms of racial trauma
-The CORT framework
-4 I’s of Oppression
-Barriers to treatment
-Ethnocultural transference and countertransference
-Trauma Informed principles through an ethical and culturally specific lens
-Personal work of anti-racism
