Location: Zoom

Please note, this training is conducted in two parts with Part 1 being held on 8/5/2022. Participants will not be allowed to register for just Part 1 or Part 2. The registration fee of $120 is for both parts. Please reach out to if you have any questions.

Many clinicians are either unaware of or struggle to understand how to approach power differentials between therapist and client as well as those between family members and/or partners. This module will focus on identifying power differentials in clinical practice as well as opportunities and tools for acknowledging these in clinical work. The training will invite participants to acknowledge the many layers of identity within themselves, within the client, and how these interact. The training will also focus on how power and privilege within these identities can reinforce system structures that reinforce power imbalances. Finally, this information will be used and applied to a case example, and participants will have an opportunity to practice these clinical skills.

Goals for the Workshop

Upon conclusion of the discussion, participants will be able to:

  • Define concepts related to systemic power and privilege, and microaggressions
  • Increase awareness of personal biases and privileges
  • Identify and discuss common themes of microaggressions
  • Discuss how power and privilege imbalances impact individual, couples, and family therapy
  • Discuss opportunities and tools for acknowledging power and privilege imbalances and microaggressions in clinical practice
