    Workshop: Racial Microaggression in Clinical Practice
    through
    Catholic Charities of Oregon

    Each one-day workshop will be held from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm at Catholic Charities Clark Family Center. MONDAY'S WORKSHOP IS REPEATED ON TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY.

    Racial Microaggressions are defined as “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults toward people of color”. Racial Microaggressions are the result of unconscious or implicit bias that seeps into interactions with marginalized people. These microaggressions have deep and detrimental impacts on the mental and physical health of people of color and they have enormous impact on the way in which people of color interact with mental health treatment and services.

    This training will support clinicians in recognizing and stopping implicit bias that affects the way in which they engage in clinical practice with clients of color. It will help clinicians to improve their clinical relationship with clients through the reduction of implicit bias interactions for overall improved interventions and outcomes based in equity and social justice.

    Benefits:

    • Enhanced clinical rapport with clients.
    • Long term engagement with clients of color.
    • Overall improvement of services to clients from communities of color.
    • Certificate offered - C.E.U. (Continuing Educational Units) through the National Association of Social Workers.
    • Beneficial for developmental and personal growth goals
