Each culture has its own nuances and differences. While our profession lends a lot of discussion to appreciating these differences, little discussion is given to understanding and utilizing these differences in a way that will propel a counseling relationship forward. While a course on multiculturalism is required in most education programs, is that enough? Lack of understanding often leads to breakdowns in communication and relationships which are the core of our professions.
This presentation will provide therapists of all backgrounds with practical skills needed to better engage with African American populations.
The presenter is Maya B. Galathe, M.Ed., LPC, NCC, a Licensed Professional Mental Health Counselor and owner of Goal Digging Therapy, LLC located in Baton Rouge, LA.
