SCPA Friday Night Workshop on January 5th, 2017

The January workshop is entitled "Professional and Personal Experiences of Microaggressions in a Therapy Room".
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. - Dec. 19, 2017 - PRLog -- This presentation will address how to identify and address cultural and other biases that impinge upon a therapeutic setting. It will address the covert nature of the biases and subtle forms of aggression that persons from minority groups experience. There will be an experiential aspect to this training that will assist participants to identify and address personal biases that can affect the therapeutic process. There will be discussion of various experiences of prejudgment. The presentation will explore how to engage in a corrective process.

At the conclusion of the presentation, attendees will be able to:
• Identify and critically evaluate their own personal biases;
• Articulate their understanding of the detrimental impact of prejudgment;
• Describe how biases can undermine the therapeutic experience for members of a minority group;
• Propose ways of improving their self-monitoring skills in this regard and engaging in corrective action as necessary.
