    Zoom Chapter Meeting

    Applying Cultural Humility to Therapy

    with Lizette Lopez, LMFT

    In this interactive workshop, we will explore the power of privilege, the barriers to obtaining services, and the importance of creating a safe space where clients feel invited to talk about socioeconomic status, race and racial trauma, and stigmas related to cultural beliefs of obtaining treatment. Together we delve into our own racial identity and privilege to help us better navigate and acknowledge our clients' intersecting identities and furthermore, utilize the clients' intersectionality to help the client come to terms with generational trauma and create strength and empowerment through culture and identity.

    Educational Learning Objectives

    1) Identify 2-3 components of your own privilege  

    2) Learn key terms and how to apply them to your current practice

    3) Identify 3 components of creating a safe space that invites conversations about culture and trauma
