Webinar Synopsis:

Racial oppression remains a reality in the United States, and African Americans still suffer from historical and current oppressive structures. As the nation continues to grapple with how to address this social ill, therapists and counselors must set the example by equipping themselves with culturally competent tools that will improve their ability to dismantle racial oppression in clinical practice. This course helps clinicians to move beyond the requisite diversity course and develop a deeper understanding and integration of their racial blind spots and the multifaceted implications of social, systemic, institutionalized, and internalized oppression. Through personal story-sharing and professional treatment scenarios, Dr. Buckingham will demonstrate how to use emotional intelligence as a clinical tool to deliver culturally sensitive care to African American clients.

Learning Objectives:

• Define the historical context and purpose of racism
• Define racial oppression
• Distinguish between covert and overt racism
• Identify at least three potential clinician racial blind spots with African American clients
• Apply emotional intelligence (EQ) as a tool to dismantle racial oppression in clinical practice.

Speaker:  Dr. Dwayne Buckingham
