Presenters: Sheri Reda
Those of us in helping professions are sensitive and caring–but we don’t always sound that way. In this age of identity, the words we use to describe others can wind up being unintentionally hurtful. Communicating clearly and kindly requires an understanding of current concepts regarding ethnicity, culture, race, and gender. This three-hour workshop will offer a primer to these concepts along with opportunities to reflect on the issues they bring up.
*This class meets the requirements for LCSW and LCPC diversity CEUs.
