Being open and committed to supporting minority clients will likely result in some missteps. In turn, minority clients are often hesitant to be transparent with clinicians in sharing that an encounter has made them uncomfortable. It is up to counselors to hold this space for clients to voice any thoughts and concerns. This two-part presentation will explore common missteps in the counseling process with minority clients, and how to address and repair those relationships. The concepts of cultural humility and affirmation will be defined and practiced by participants. The presenters will also discuss how to create a more inclusive practice or supervision space, and practical EFT interventions addressing racial trauma. A resource list will be provided for participants.
- Explore the concepts of cultural humility and cultural affirmation
- Identification of common cultural faux pas and consequences of racial blindness
- Improve broaching skills with clients
- Practical EFT interventions for clients experiencing racial trauma and microaggressions
- Strategies for intentionally establishing a more inclusive practice

Diversity/Inclusion scholarships are being offered as a statement that BLACK LIVES MATTER! We want to address the unconscious, systemic racism that has resulted in a lack of diversity in EFT training. The equity rate is designed to encourage participation from people from underrepresented groups, whose presence will enrich the training experience for everyone. If you can benefit from the equity rate pricing and identify with one of the following categories, please come and participate in the upcoming EFT training course. The categories are: 1) Those who identify with an underrepresented group such as, but not excluded to, Black Therapists and 2) those who work with historically marginalized communities.
The equity pricing is available based on your need, and an application is not required. You are invited to choose the rate/quantity that best meets your need. Please indicate what multiple of $25 you can pay. For example, if you can pay only $25, then indicate a quantity of 1; if you can pay $100, then indicate a quantity of 4 (X $25), etc. If you have any questions, please contact Debra Wright or Steve Wampler.
