Culturally Sensitive Strategies for Counseling Asian American and Pacific Islander Clients

Presented by Stacey Diane Arañez Litam, PhD., LPCC-S, NCC, CCMHC 
2 CEs- Meets Ethics Requirements

This webinar provides a brief historical overview of anti-Asian discrimination to help mental health professionals contextualize how xenophobic rhetoric may contribute to racial trauma and psychological distress. Next, clinical implications for counseling Asian and AAPI clients will be outlined. Finally, attendees will learn culturally relevant, trauma informed strategies for cultivating ethnic identity, enhancing resilience, and promoting psychological wellbeing among Asian and AAPI communities. 

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, rates of racial discrimination towards Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) have substantially increased. Anti-Asian rhetoric touted by political leaders and media outlets that refer to COVID-19 as the “Chinese virus” echo historical sentiments of anti-Asian oppression and may contribute to higher rates of mental health distress in Asian and AAPI communities.

Healing 101: Mental Health and the Indigenous Community

Presented by Kurstie Bevelhymer-Rangel, LSW
3 CEs- Meets Ethics Requirements

This webinar will aim to provide education on the history, intersectionality, and best practices of working with Indigenous people, communities, and tribes. The populations covered will extend beyond the federally recognized tribes of what is now known as the United States and will also cover the First Nations of Canada, Inuit, Métis, as well as Indigenous tribes of Mexico. This training will serve as a brief introduction to working with Indigenous communities, confronting the barriers to healthcare, mental healthcare, and provide resources for advocacy on behalf of these communities. 

Native/Indigenous people have been colonized since the formation of what is now considered The United States of America. Due to forced cultural assimilation, many Native/Indigenous communities lost their identities and are victims to political, economic, and cultural structures prominent in the US that contribute to a rise in health-related problems, including mental health illnesses. To combat this, it is imperative to address the inequality and discrimination faced by Native/Indigenous people as this has been shown to be more effective than the standardized societal focus and emphasis on medication and traditional western therapy.

Low Libido or Desire Discrepancy

Presented by Alexis Rae Burrow, LPCC-S and Heather Sexton, LPC
2 CEs

Low libido is one of the biggest concerns women bring to health-care providers in and outside of the therapy room. Often, evidence shows, women who struggle with low libido don’t reveal their struggle unless directly asked. The problem is, very few clinicians have any training on how to recognize and especially treat low libido. This training will equip therapists with ways to identify this common sexual concern. You will leave this training being able to assess and intervene with evidence-based interventions for this common sexual issue.

Training coming soon.
