Decolonizing Mental Health: Moving from Whitewashed Wellness to Culturally-Affirming Practices

Presented by Kurstie Bevelhymer-Rangel, LSW and Julie Hazel, LPCC

Thursday, October 6th 2:00pm-5:00pm
3 CEs- Meets Ethics Requirements 

The presenters invite participants to attend this training with an open mind as the information presented will de-center well-known theories and practices that were built on the foundations of white supremacy, systemic racism, and oppression. The presenters will aim to aid participants in identifying their implicit biases as well as challenge and dismantle practitioner’s educational and professional experiences. This training will aim to amplify teachings, theories, and practices rooted in the knowledge passed down from Black, Indigenous, and People of Color throughout history that have paved the way for the common theories, interventions, and practices used today. This will allow space for participants to critically think about the ways in which systemic racism and white supremacy have played a foundational role in the development of educational and professional practices within the Psychology, Social Work, and Counseling fields. From this perspective, participants will be able to critically examine the ways in which implicit biases have skewed professional practices and allow practitioners to incorporate more culturally relevant and appropriate practices when working with marginalized communities.

Julie and Kurstie are offering times for 1 HOUR VIRTUAL CONSULTATION GROUPS to help deepen understanding of the concepts discussed, allow for practical application of concepts to specific case examples, and address attendee’s specific clinical questions. Consultation groups will be limited to 5 participants to ensure each attendee receives time and space to address their specific clinical concerns. Date and time will be coordinated after the presentation by email.
