Subject: Use of the Self, EFT, and Conversations about Culture and Race
As we begin a new year of study in EFT that will focus on us becoming more racially conscious therapists and anti-racist human beings, Sam Jinich PhD and Paul Guillory PhD will kick off the season of learning with a journey inside of ourselves. The Self of the privileged and blind-spotted therapist will be explored. Enriching and challenging, and humbling and hard is what our presenters will be aiming for during this rich and in-depth experiential presentation.
At the conclusion of this event participants will be able to:
1. Identify and describe how disowned or private aspects of Self of Therapist can negatively impact our work with diverse clients.
2. Discuss and explain three ways Self of Therapist growth can help shift therapists from a defensive stance to a lens of cultural humility and empathy when working with POC clients, particularly in destabilized moments.
3. Learn appropriate skills to "lean in" with Self of Therapist empathy, apology, and remorse when power, privilege, or biases have impacted the therapeutic relationship in an EFT session.
