Biracial and Beyond: Deepening the Exploration of Self with Multi-Ethnic Clients
Expanding a clinician’s awareness of the complexity of racial identity for clients that identify as multi-ethnic or multi-racial, allows clinicians and their supervisors to increase their capacity to join with others, both clinically and personally. In this course, through lecture and discussion, participants will deepen their capacity to be fully present in a therapeutic relationship with multi-ethnic clients, and others, including clients that others may identify as ethnically ambiguous. Participants will gain and deepen their skills to mindfully and intentionally navigate these conversations in a manner that nurtures connection and supports making others’ experiences more visible in the room.
