Codes of Ethics, Social Justice, Whiteness

Presented and developed by Lisa Erickson, MS, LMHC

Our codes of ethics call on us to be aware of the importance of multiculturalism, and the cultural climate in which our clients live.  How can we be more aware and less defensive? What are our blind spots? How can we be more responsive and responsible?

In this ethics training, we will explore our own biases with an eye towards doing better work in diverse environments. We will become more familiar with Robin DiAngelo’s work on white fragility and Claude Steele’s work on stereotype threat, among others.  

Participants will
        --learn about intrinsic bias, and microaggressions.

        --explore our own fears and strengths in working with diverse populations.

        ­­--apply our Codes of Ethics moving forward so that we can better live up to ethical best practices.

Lisa believes that ethics trainings should be thought provoking, current and interactive.  Her goal is for ethics trainings to deepen your thoughtful commitment to healing others, and be a reminder of why you decided to be a psychotherapist.  To that end, she tries to make ethics trainings meaningful and interesting.
