How to use PACE to create a felt sense of safety with Black and Racialized youth and families – EST

12 April 2024 (10:00 am - 2:00 pm EST)
Fully booked

This workshop will integrate DDP and Dr. Kenneth Hardy’s work (author of the book Racial Trauma: Healing Invisible Wounds) to help participants create a safe place for conversations about race and to help racialized clients feel seen, heard and valued.

Sian and Charmaine will use a role play to illustrate how DDP can be sensitive to race, talk about how to be aware of implicit biases, how to recognize and repair ruptures when they occur, which they inevitably will when the therapist has a very different lived experience to their client.

Participants will be asked to reflect in small and large groups on how to create safety with racialized clients.

Who can attend?

This workshop is available to all who are interested in creating equitable practices. You may find it helpful to review these resources prior to the workshop include;
