Upcoming Trainings

Identity Exploration and Development for the Therapist

Saturday January 13, 2024 9a-1:30p CST via Zoom - Registration opens mid-November 2023.

This course aims to increase therapists’ self-awareness at the intersections of identity, power, and oppression. This training is inherently systemic and centers person-in-context. By exploring the nuance and complexity of their own identity development, participants will build awareness, empathy, and cultural humility for clients - especially those who are marginalized and oppressed.

Upon course completion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and reflect on the basic stages and contexts of identity development.

  • Guide clients through a holistic exploration of identity.

  • Articulate the primary systems of oppression, identify their own levels of more or less power within those systems, and develop language to discuss identity, power, and oppression with clients.

  • Create more authentic therapeutic alliances with clients of diverse identities.

CEU Approved for Minnesota Boards: BBHT, MFT (Cultural Competency), and Social Work.

This training will repeat quarterly online via Zoom. 

Lola is available to present this training to your clinic in-person or via Zoom.
