We are exposed to the issue of racism through media and daily experience and so are our clients. Many times our clients need a safe space to navigate all of the input they receive and come to terms with how racism and oppression are impacting their lives. Dealing with the topic of racism in an open, factual and compassionate way may alleviate some client anxiety around the topic and help them address these issues in a safe environment. This workshop will explore the role race plays in the therapeutic process when addressing issues of racial trauma and offer the participants techniques to openly discuss race and racial trauma in a therapeutic setting.

4 Domestic Violence CE credits for Psychologists

This workshop includes brief historical, political, and cultural perspectives on domestic violence against women as well as the current state of this issue. Following this overview, we discuss various forms of violence against women that impact their emotional, physical, and psychological well-being. Although the content of this workshop are not exhaustive, the hope is to provide participants with a fundamental knowledge of how domestic violence has manifested throughout society and how to approach survivors using a trauma-informed, intersectional, clinical framework. Finally, vicarious trauma and self-care will be discussed, along with how to promote posttraumatic growth in clients will be discussed.
