Competency Area: Relationship

Over the course of this weekend workshop, we will strive to conceptualize how we, as individuals and as members of this profession, can promote social justice through our clinical practice. This workshop will expand students’ views of the limits of how we, as psychologists, can contribute to a better life using alternative modes of practice. Participants will explore the rhetoric of “social justice,” better understand the similarities and differences between social justice and multiculturalism, and/or participate in discussion and dialogue on the implications of disciplinary boundaries for those we hope to help. Participants will read a series of essays prior to the class that will form the theoretical and practical foundations of our work together.
