Privilege: The challenge for White Social Workers and Counselors
Being able to talk about the challenging topics of discrimination, privilege and racism have always been a part of the work of the clinician’s skillset, but in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, there is an increased urgency and necessity to be equipped with tools to be able to discuss these often-divisive topics.
It is part of the role of all mental health professionals to become aware of the impact of privilege and its interconnection with systems of racial oppression in order to have essential conversations with coworkers and clients. This webinar will provide a culturally relevant understanding of the language, awareness and skills needed to have these interactions.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Define and gain a deep understanding of privilege, unconscious bias, microaggressions, racism, privilege, equity, color blindness, anti-racism and intersectionality.
- Identify ways that privilege impacts professional relationships and
- Provide mental health professionals with a culturally relevant toolbox of skills to work to address the impact of privilege on micro and macro levels of practice.
