Now more than ever, Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities are experiencing diverse forms of racism and trauma within our society. As practitioners shift from being culturally competent to antiracist and trauma-informed practitioners, how can we help BIPOC clients navigate oppressive systems? How can we be more intentional with our clients, validate their emotions, and hold space for their lived experiences? This webinar offers insight concerning decolonizing psychotherapeutic practices. Additionally, a framework about antiracist and trauma-informed approaches specifically for BIPOC clients will be discussed.
