The effects of race and racism often go unacknowledged by therapists, and many Black clients leave therapy feeling unaffirmed, invalidated, or worse, subjected to various forms of racism and microaggressions within the therapeutic relationship itself. In this webinar, culturally adapted cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is explored as a means to enhance counseling relationships and aid clinical decision-making with Black clients, as we discuss the psychological impacts of racism within the Black community and describe theoretically-based strategies to broach, conceptualize, and address race and racism in therapy with this population.
During this webinar you will learn how to:
Broach race and racism in therapy with Black clients and build culturally responsive therapeutic relationships
Conceptualize the role of race and racism in mental health challenges experienced by Black clients
Develop theoretically-based, culturally sensitive treatment approaches for Black clients
