“Uncovering Intersections of Cultural and Clinical Identity in Multicultural Practice.”
Join us for this free webinar! Our understanding of cultural diversity has expanded exponentially, particularly within a clinical context. It is reasonable to be tentative on this uncertain path; The opportunities for growth can feel exciting and overwhelming. It is useful to identify markers and decision-points to reorient yourself within this ever changing landscape. Understanding your clinical identity and approach represent two important pathways to achieving improved therapeutic outcomes. This webinar is for helpers that embrace the challenge of being multiculturally relevant, are seeking direction or are stuck in ‘analysis paralysis’.
- Explore two constructs of relevance for culturally and linguistically diverse clients
- Identify five facets of your cultural identity
- Describe your perception of intersectionality and the relevance to clinical practice
- Assess your engagement in clinical activism
Dr. Carmen Crosby is a respected thought leader in the areas of diversity, inclusion and culturally specific practice. Drawing from her training as a therapist, clinical supervisor and researcher, her contributions to the field of trauma and violence highlight the importance of social equity and reflexive praxis. Her translational research connects the dots between intersectionality and cultural inclusion, current trends in evidence-based research and her desire to support individuals and organizations toward superior performance. Dr. Crosby approaches these difficult topics through curiosity, skill and a self-effacing manner that is both practical and engaging. Dr. Crosby received her MSW from University of Michigan where she focused on Interpersonal Practice with Children, Youth, Families and Society. She received her PhD from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill where she focused on the development, application and evaluation of prevention research.
