Humans are comprised of multiple identities that collectively define themselves as individuals. These various identities serve as the lens through which an individual navigates life including trauma and healing. Recognizing trauma intervention and healing as a social justice issue, this webinar will unpack the relationship between an individual's identity, held positions of social privilege and/or marginalization and clinical needs. Through interactive dialogue, participants will be safely promoted to explore their own identity construct and its impact on those they serve. This webinar aims to provide clinicians and macro practitioners with an increased understanding of identity and the critical need of culturally specific interventions when supporting the healing needs of various populations.
This webinar meets cultural competency CEU requirements.
