CDP Presents: Unmasking Microaggressions in a Clinical Setting: An Interactive Discussion Online via Zoom
4 May, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Description: Oftentimes, we make snap judgments of people we interact with, categorizing them according to gender, social, and other characteristics. This may unintentionally lead to microaggressions, which are subtle, covert forms of discrimination. These microaggressions may happen every single day – and you may not even realize it. Microaggressions may impact your interactions with clients, co-workers, and contribute to detrimental impacts. During this presentation, participants will learn practical strategies to help identify microaggressions in a clinical setting and discuss the actions you can take to mitigate them. Additionally, coping strategies for those who experience microaggressions will be discussed. Together we will engage in dialogue and focus on how we can create more inclusive clinical settings.
Please note: Space in this event is limited and registration will close once capacity has been reached, even if this is before the final registration date.
Target Audience: For behavioral health/healthcare providers who treat military personnel, Veterans, and their families.
