Topic: Navigating Ableism in the Therapy Room: A Discussion for Therapist on How to be Informed Able-bodied Allies
Location: TPI, 2232 Carleton St., Berkeley, CA 94704
Date: Wednesday, Nov 13th 2019, 6:30 to 8:00pm
Facilitator: Audre Mowry, Registered Associate MFT
In this Dialogue on Difference we will be discussing ways that therapists and clinicians of varying abilities can be more informed about and supportive to our clients with disabilities. We will explore ways of creating affirming and welcoming spaces for our clients. There will be a case study presented and invitation to share any cases that participants may bring and may have questions about. We will also have space to discuss the challenges that we may have encountered in our practices already and be curious together how we can become more informed allies.
