Bringing the Ethics of Inclusion to Your Psychotherapy and Practice Space

Ethics and social justice are key components of the code of the profession of social work and similar helping professions and very much a part of the larger movement of decolonizing therapy.

Beyond multiculturalism education and cultural competency, we discover a new phrase – that of decolonizing therapy, which challenges us to explore how we can begin to include the trauma of oppression within our healing and helping sessions and dismantle the often-unconscious structures of racism.

In this three-hour online training workshop from 9 a.m. to noon (Eastern Time) Feb. 12, led by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we look at practical ways that psychotherapists and other helpers can support inclusion in their work particularly regarding Black, Indigenous and People of Color.

Although no one will be turned away, this training workshop is especially designed for white psychotherapists who have been immersed in the dominant society and are looking for ways to begin to sensitively address how they can become more welcoming to Black, Indigenous and People of Color.

We will use experiential and interactive teaching activities to support the exploration of multiple ways that we can design our practices to become more welcoming to “the other,” particularly people of color.

In this workshop, you will learn:

The ethics of social justice.
The definition of “decolonizing”.
Assessing your images as welcoming and healing.
Reinventing your intake and other information.
How to begin address the trauma of oppression.
How to become a resource for your community.
Why and how images count.
Ideas for continuing your learning and professional development.

Retrieving the Treasure – Returning to Serve, Heal, and Transform the Wasteland

Our 2018 series, which has used myth and the Journey of the Heroine/Hero as a model for healing and transforming ourselves and our world, culminates in this final three-day workshop, which focuses on the Return of the Heroine/Hero.

During phase three, we again draw upon action methods and expressive arts, including the Sociometric Wheel, to help us explore:
• How the Heroine/Hero, who heard the Call and travelled the Journey to retrieve the Treasure, must Return home with those transformational gifts;
• How Global Citizens and Social Artists can nurture community, age consciously, share resources, and actively support the empowerment of all beings;
• The power of joining with kindred spirits in a compassionate community of support, inspiration, encouragement, and celebration; and
• A ‘winter’ of self-care needed to ponder and integrate transformational experience.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Identify and reflect upon the gifts they’ve received on the Journey – their Treasure;
• Interact compassionately with others in understanding how they might individually and collectively explore what it means to be Global Citizens and Social Artists;
• Access roles that can deepen their understanding of and experience with action methods and their use; and
• Reflect on how their learning might be incorporated personally and/or applied professionally after the workshop.

Though helpful, it is not necessary to have attended the previous two events. Indeed, as multifaceted beings, in one area of our life, we may be hearing a Call; in another, we may be experiencing the Journey; and in a further area, may be striving to integrate and apply new learning – the Return. The focus of this workshop is on the Return, but the overall heroine/hero’s journey remains the context and will be incorporated into the workshop.

Time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day
ABE Hours: 18
