Too often, therapists and other helping professionals feel paralyzed by the fear that they don’t know enough about other cultural groups to counsel clients different than themselves. In this online self study course... our six experts set out to mitigate these fears by providing a framework for professionals to better understand the experiences of cultural groups with whom they are not personally or professionally familiar.
Trauma, grief and suicide disproportionately impact communities of colour and difference.
But discrimination and power dynamics have often been overlooked in our professional educations – frequently downplayed, oversimplified, or even fearfully avoided by clinicians.
