Dr. Wendy Ashley and Dr. Allen Lipscomb will facilitate a training on antiracist clinical practices to increase understanding of power, privilege, and implicit biases brought to treatment spaces and their impact on therapeutic efficacy. The facilitators will provide participants with knowledge regarding intersectional identities, antiracist tools and strategies to apply content to support client empowerment and promote social justice when providing clinical services. These skills will hone in on the power and privilege dynamics that are inherent in practice settings and provide critical race theoretical tenets to integrate intersectionality in a variety of practice contexts.
