This workshop will increase participants self awareness around issues as they relate to diversity and the implications of that awareness in the clinical process with clients. Racism has flooded our lives with recent events of clashes between marginalized communities and law enforcement. Utah has recently legislated anti discrimination laws protecting LGBTQ people from unfair housing and employment discrimination. How does the issues of â€œismsâ€ interact in our relationship with clients? How does systemic prejudice impact the lives and functioning of our clients? More importantly, how does the therapist own unexamined bias potentially impact the therapeutic relationship with someone outside their own scope of privilege? This session will explore how societal â€œismsâ€ impact our understanding of clients and how a Reflexive Practice will facilitate deeper awareness as well as provide tools that will heighten and improve the therapeutic process between counselor and client.
