“Becoming a Multiculturally Competent Counselor”

Renee Savage, M.S., LPC-MHSP

This multicultural training will take you through the history of understanding how people of color operate in our current systems and societal structures. As a therapist, you will gain an understanding of how to effectively help your clients of diverse backgrounds. You will gain the knowledge and therapeutic skills needed to serve clients in a way that is honoring to their backgrounds and racial identities.

Objectives:

  • To understand the impact of current multicultural issues that affect the client/therapist relationship
  • To teach a therapeutic framework for understanding and embracing client differences
  • To develop an anti-racist ideology that reduces implicit bias as a therapist
