4 CEU (Ethics/Cultural Competency)

Have you ever wondered if you’ve said or done something culturally inappropriate or insensitive to a client? This workshop will provide an introductory examination into the topic of microaggressions, with focus on microaggressions within the counseling process. Microaggressions are brief, everyday indignities and expressions of negative beliefs about an oppressed group. These microaggressions are often unintentional and may be words we speak, actions we take, or woven into the environment we build. Individuals of oppressed cultural identities experience microaggressions all too frequently and have been described as experiencing death by a thousand tiny cuts. Microaggressions against oppressed cultures have always existed, but professional and population discussion of the concept is still emerging and may be unfamiliar to counseling professionals. Individuals who provide direct clinical service may unknowingly commit microaggressions against clients of color, LGBTQIA populations, and women, among many other cultural groups. You’ll gain introductory knowledge on a broad range of microaggressions and learn how to improve clinical practice through the elimination of microaggressive actions.
