Beyond Textbooks: A Therapist’s Training on Cultural Humility in the Present Day
by Larry D. Lariosa, LMFT
Educational Goals: This workshop will focus on developing a therapist’s capacity for cultural humility. It will help participants look at their diverse social identities and develop a capacity to assess them. The workshop will help participants increase awareness of how power, privilege and bias impacts their own clinical work.

Additionally, attendees will look at how historical cultural oppression is a form of trauma and will review and understand best practices for cultivating an environment that promotes cultural humility.
