*Previously Recorded on 11/02/2021 - Not a Live Event**

As clinicians and supervisors working with racially diverse clients and supervisees in this current sociopolitical and sociocultural landscape, we are pressed to be able to ethically intervene from antiracist, culturally-informed, and social justice-informed perspectives. Utilizing case study application and a stages of change model, this two-hour workshop focuses on racial trauma and how to understand its development in black and indigenous people of color. An outline will be provided for effectively conceptualizing clinical treatment and supervision for diverse clients and supervisees. The AMHCA 2020 Code of Ethics will be incorporated alongside the 2016 Multicultural & Social Justice Counseling Competencies and the 2016 Multicultural Orientation Framework.
