Anti-Racism Trainings and Coaching
Anti-Racism Trainings and Coaching for White Helping Professionals | FREE / Donation towards Reparations
These trainings and coaching sessions take place on Zoom. To date, participants have been from places all around the USA, Canada, and the United Kingdom. (I also offer individual coaching, group coaching/workshops, and resources for white people who are in interracial relationships (see White People in Interracial Relationships), or are wanting help addressing their whiteness in relation to their family, work, or themselves.
Anti-racism trainings and personal coaching for white helping professionals:
~ Increase racial literacy.
~ Understand our whiteness and white privilege.
~ Deeply explore how white supremacy unconsciously and consciously impacts our lives.
~ Examine the colonization of the mental health and social work fields and explore how it occurs in your work.
~ Identify how the “Characteristics of White Supremacy” guide you and your organization.
~ Identify how your “fight, flee, freeze, and fawn” reactions to threat and discomfort play out for you in racial-based situations.
~ Learn concrete strategies to respond from your values and not from your fears.
~ Face your internal fears, discomfort, and conflict avoidance when witnessing racist behavior or policies.
~ Develop our anti-racist and decolonizing perspectives into actual anti-racist practices.
