Training Description: This series of 3 trainings provides the foundational knowledge, tools, and practices for culturally responsive counseling. These workshops build personal cultural awareness for participants, a crucial first step in working effectively with socially and culturally diverse clients. Participants explore their cultural identities, biases, and experiences as racialized beings. They also learn more about the process of racialization and how racial structures impact groups and individuals. Considering the anxiety that issues of race arouse, these workshops also incorporate mindfulness practices and tools for managing intense emotions and challenging discussions.

Workshop #1: Culturally Responsive Self-Awareness: Mapping Cultural and Social Identities (8/26/22; 11am-1pm PT)

  • This introductory-level workshop builds cultural awareness, one of the core competencies of culturally responsive counseling. It explains the concept of intersectionality and its applicability as a framework for engaging an individual’s diverse social and cultural identities. This interactive workshop invites participants to explore their intersecting identities and map their shifting locations as part of marginalized and privileged communities. Participants are encouraged to apply their reflections to their clinical practice by considering how their lived identities impact their clinical decisions and clients. Finally, participants are supported in identifying tangible ways to establish and maintain professional practices that build their cultural awareness.

Workshop #2: Culturally Responsive Counseling: Addressing Cultural Biases that Influence Clinical Practice (9/30/22; 11am-1pm PT)

  • This introductory-level workshop begins with an informative overview of key concepts in antiracist clinical practice, including definitions of race, prejudice, discrimination, racism, and antiracism. It also explores the similarities and differences between the following concepts: (1) Cultural Competence, (2) Cultural Humility, and (3) Cultural Responsiveness. This workshop assists clinicians in identifying vocabulary for their approach to working with socially and culturally diverse clients. In addition, participants consider the ethical responsibilities of therapists concerning race, racism, and social justice. Clinicians engage in critical self-exploration, in which they explore their own biases as therapists. Finally, participants identify the racial issues they are most comfortable addressing as therapists and the topics about which they remain silent.

Workshop #3: Race Talk- Strategies for Effective Discussions around Race and Racism (10/28/22; 11am-1pm PT)

  • Talking about race, racism and other issues related to cultural identities often causes people to feel anxious. This intermediate-level workshop identifies how “race talk” can be triggering and helps participants consider their capacities for these conversations. Participants explore their own race stories and how it feels to communicate these narratives. This workshop teaches participants how to better “read race” during any interpersonal interaction, address racial issues at the moment, and manage intense emotional feelings that arise during these moments. Participants learn mindful strategies for decreasing strong personal reactions, including empathy, self-compassion, mindful listening, and mindful meditative exercises. Importantly, this workshop also provides tools for keeping racial discussions safe, with gracious strategies for engaging racially offensive comments.
