CEU Training: Intersectional Allyship for Professional Helpers

Intersectional Allyship for Professional Helpers:
Working across differences in race, class, ability, gender and sexual orientation

With Dr. Felicia Washington Sy, Executive Director of RECLAIM

This interactive workshop offers practical solutions to working across difference. Participants will learn how to be an ally for peers and client’s whose culture differs from their own. The training design operates from the essential position that anyone in a place of privilege can be an ally. For example, people from majority culture can be actionable allies to people of color, and men can be allies to women, cis people can be allies to transgender and gender non-conforming people, non-disabled people can be allies to those with different abilities, economically privileged people can be allies to those who are not and so on. Many of us lack the tools to effectively engage in the process of allyship defined as, “a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with marginalized individuals and groups of people.” Please join Dr. Felicia Washington Sy as she engages workshop participants in the systemic process of critical self-reflection, values orientation, safe space creation, and speaking out against bias and discrimination. The workshop educates participants about social justice and actively becoming a bridge for inclusivity. Those who supervise cross-culturally are especially encouraged to attend.

This will be an opportunity to receive eight CEUs for social workers. MFT, LPC/LPCC, Psychologists and Nursing CEUs pending. Two ethic credits are also available.

This workshop is a program of RECLAIM. At RECLAIM, we increase access to mental health support so that queer and trans youth may be free from oppression in all of its forms. We provide financially and culturally accessible care to queer and trans youth and their families, develop practitioners, and partner in community through training and education at the intersection of gender and racial justice.
