Discussing Race and Culture In Therapy 
 
Thursday, February 5th

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Gronowski Clinic, D11A
 
Join us for a presentation and discussion on conducting therapy with culturally diverse clients. Dr. Teceta Tormala will provide an introduction, discussing the psychological effects of intergroup differences. Dr. Tim Baima, Dr. Matthew Mock, and current PAU doctoral students will discuss their personal clinical experiences and strategies for working with clients from differing cultural backgrounds. The conversation will include thoughts on working with Black clients, as well as clients from other ethnic and racial backgrounds, and clients who vary in spirituality, gender, age, and sexual orientation. A Q&A session will follow the panel presentation. The discussion will be completely confidential, as we want to foster a supportive, nonjudgmental environment in which all students can engage in open and honest dialogue. We encourage students to engage with this material, in support of their development as culturally competent therapists.  
 
Dinner will be provided; please RSVP.
 
 
Please note: This event is only open to current, enrolled PAU students
