The Existence of Disability Culture: Implications for Clinicians and The Therapeutic Space

March 28, 2025 9:00 am - 12:00 pm Central Time Trainer: Lily Diego-Johnson Fee: $75/$60 discounted (We offer a discounted pricing for BIPOC folks, Trans folks, folks with a disability and folks with limited economic resources) CEUs: 3 (Live Oak offers CEUs for social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors and psychologists through the Illinois Dept. of Financial and Professional Regulation. Live Oak has partnered with Centered Therapy Chicago to provide CEUs for psychologists.) Location: Zoom

This training will provide a brief overview of key moments in disability history where ableism is used in conjunction with White Supremacy, racism, Anti-Blackness, and other systems of power. We will examine how mental health has been used as a weapon in disability communities to disempower and create tensions around accessing mental health services. A brief focus will be given to particular disability models and the significance of disability culture. A particular emphasis will be placed on how disability culture can be given priority in the therapeutic space and why it is important for clinicians to enhance their knowledge of disability customs, access, and the hesitancy around identifying as disabled or chronically ill.

This training is virtual and will be held over the Zoom platform. Auto Captions will be available. For any access requests, please contact the facilitator, Lily Diego Johnson
