When We White Helping Professionals Work with People of Color: Mixing Good Intentions, Good Practices and White Privilege
The workshop is aimed at white helping professionals. It will overtly addresses the race dynamics for us non-People of Color when we are the helping professional working with a Person of Color. So much of this stuff we don’t talk about or we don’t know how to talk about it or we are afraid to talk about it because we don’t want to show our racism or to "appear racist". This workshop is an opportunity for white socially conscious mental health, medical and social service providers, and other related helpers, to join together to create a supportive, informative, non-judgmental, confidential and frank space.
