Abstract


Workshop Description

Multicultural identity is an important part of early childhood, adolescent, and adult development. As such, psychologists should have the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed to explore identity and the intersections of identity in counseling relationships (APA Multicultural Guidelines, 2017). In this advanced workshop, we will examine further the following topics:

  1. The concept of identity, specifically identifying the multiple facets of identity (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender, social class, ability status, religion) and their intersectionality for counselor and client.
  2. Learn models of racial-cultural identity development.
  3. Actively apply this information to counseling relationships.

This Workshop is at intermediate/advanced level of training. CE = 3 credits

The registration fee has been held to a low $30, and is separate from the conference registration fee.
