Friday, October 6, 2023
9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Zoom, 3.0 CEs
This event is offered "live" on Zoom only. It will not be recorded.
This introductory-level workshop examines the concept of antiracism through the book How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi and the documentary 13th by Ava DuVernay.
In this workshop, participants practice mindfulness and somatic strategies that can help manage the discomfort that can emerge during discussions about racial inequality. Participants explore the concepts of racism, antiracism, and the criminal justice system and discuss their own personal experiences and beliefs about these concepts, and their own experiences of and beliefs about racism and antiracism. Participants utilize the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies framework to analyze how racism and antiracism impact their clinical practice and try an Implicit Association Test to explore their unconscious biases.
The goals for this presentation are for participants to:
- Reflect upon the impact of racism and antiracism on one’s clinical practice.
- Increase counselor self-awareness of their assumptions, biases and beliefs about the criminal justice system.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Practice one strategy for managing discomfort experienced when exploring emotionally challenging social justice topics.
- Explore definitions of racism and antiracism
- Consider how antiracism impacts your clinical practice.
- Discuss 13th’s central ideas about the criminal justice system.
- Utilize an Implicit Association Test to explore your biases about race and weapons.
- Utilize AMCD’s Multicultural and Social Justice framework to explore anitracism and the criminal justice system in relation to your clinical practice.
