    About this Workshop:

    The current sociocultural climate and discourse in the United States elucidates the importance of understanding our humanity while fostering deeper cross-cultural relationships. As the nation demographically represents a multitude of cultures, our ability to engage in thoughtful and meaningful discussions on cultural issues, remains ever present. This course presentation addresses the current literature on color-blind racial ideology, implicit bias, working with culturally diverse clients in therapy, and the major themes that surfaced from 20 psychologists examining their own cultural influences and the impact this examination has had in their personal and professional lives. The results provide insight into the importance of understanding one’s own cultural background as a way to enhance our multicultural dialogues, both personally and professionally.


    Learning Objectives:

    At the end of this workshops, participants will be able to:
    1.) Define Implicit Bias and its impact in cross-cultural relationships.
    2) Discuss the importance of understanding the rationale and limitations of a color-blind racial ideology (CBRI).
    3) Identify the challenges and benefits of understanding and discussing their own and other cultural identities.
    4) Describe examples of how to address and incorporate cultural conversations in therapeutic settings.
