A course on the racism and anti-blackness inherent in the mental health industry and how you can cause less harm to your Black clients.
“If you don’t have an anti-racism plan, you plan to be racist.”
— Catrice M. Jackson
Why You Need This Course
As a therapist, I know that anti-blackness and racism run rampant in the mental health industry. I’ve seen it first hand, and the trauma it causes is despicable and unethical. The American Psychological Association (APA) agrees with me; they recently issued a resolution titled “Apology to People of Color for APA’s Role in Promoting, Perpetuating, and Failing to Challenge Racism, Racial Discrimination, and Human Hierarchy in U.S.”
The theories, practices, modalities, and assessment and diagnostic tools created from a white lens have been detrimental to non-white folks, especially Black people. This must change immediately, and guess what? White folks do not have the answers!
If you want to practice ethically and comply with APA Ethics Code 2.01, Boundaries of Competence, you must confront and eradicate your racism, stereotypes, and anti-blackness. This introductory four-week audio-video course is the best way to start your anti-racism journey.
