About this Webinar

During this 90-minute webinar, participants will be invited to examine the relationship between self-awareness, knowledge of others, and culturally alert interventions. The facilitators will challenge the participants to recognize the influence of intersecting identities on themselves and their clients and introduce strategies for gaining self and other awareness, including the RESPECT Model and Broaching. The facilitators will also provide participants with strategies to address powerlessness among clients who are marginalized and ways to engage in advocacy.
