The Intersection of Diversity Issues, Mindful Facilitation & Group Process
Lee Mun Wah
Friday, Sept. 3, 2021
10:30 am - 1:45 pm
So many times, much of our education as therapists has lacked adequate training from a diversity perspective and lens, partly because therapists have received ‘awareness training’ but almost no ‘practical skills training’ in dealing with diversity-related issues or confrontations when working with groups from diverse populations. In this training we will demonstrate the myriad of ways that facilitation, when practiced using Mindful Techniques, developed by Lee Mun Wah, can become a useful tool in helping counseling clients to become culturally competent and skilled in facilitating and processing individual and group issues from a diversity and therapeutic lens.Learning Objectives
- Learn mindful techniques on how to work with diversity issues and culturally diverse groups.
- Learn key mindful inquiries that promote curiosity and empathy.
- Discover the roots of our disconnections and how to reconnect.
- Learn how to mindfully listen and respond to culturally diverse groups.
- Learn how to de-escalate a conflict within seconds.
- Learn to create a sense of community, connection & belonging amongst diverse groups.
