How to Develop an Antiracist Lens for your Clinical Practice: This workshop will focus on introducing participants to an anti-racist practice model that will assist social workers in developing the ability to both expand capacity to understand the dynamics of transference and counter transference with regard to racialized tension. As social workers, we must be able to “metabolize” our own responses to race and also to allow for our clients the same space. This workshop will help you identify and manage racialized emotional fragility and what to do about it. You will learn techniques to help you and your client co create an environment of capacity to support authentic regulation for the emotional body.
