In light of increased visibility and discourse around racism, trauma, and loss regarding COVID-19, the rise of anti-Asian racism, and the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others in the black & African American community, it is important to keep in mind the various identities we have and the ways they show up in our clinical work. As Asian American mental health professionals, we have a unique role in addressing the ways that race shows up in our sessions to act in solidarity with the movement against racism, and it is important now more than ever to leverage our use of self in the therapeutic process.
Facilitated by licensed clinical social workers Chris Roque and Daniel Tanh, join NYCAAMH in a reflective and healing space for clinicians to feel supported in their efforts as we continue to collectively navigate race both during and outside of the sessions with those we are supporting. This workshop will include guided reflection and discussion and aims to help Asian American clinicians have conversations about race during session and to further cultivate an anti-racist lens as we explore how our own identities show up in the therapy room.
