ACE Foundation Programs
This interactive workshop will focus on gaining insight into one’s multiple identities and how that impacts how we move through this world. This will allow us to be better positioned to understand our clients’ identities and work with cultural humility. We will cover, and discuss, intersectionality and positionality towards the goal of helping participants think critically about how they and others “show up”. With a focus on racial identity, we will work to understand the impact of implicit biases, micro aggressions, prejudice, privilege, and oppression. The development of social identity self-awareness will be the first step towards understanding how self and other create an intersubjective experience, leading to a strengthened therapeutic relationship.
